Box Full of Steel was released on June 23. The album was written, arranged, engineered, recorded, mixed and mastered by Big Hair and Brady “Daddy Brady” Waggoner. Produced on Daddy Brady’s Chalicetown Records imprint, it draws from an eclectic mix of musical influences from reggae rhythms, dancehall, and gritty afro-funk beats.

“Last weekend, Daddy Brady and Papa Robbie and I took New York City by storm, performing Uh Huh with the true King of Dancehall Yellowman at the Legendary BB Kings in Times Square. It was great, the crowd loved it. We had a hell of a time,” said Big Hair.
