Billboard #1 charting reggae-rock band Roots of Creation has returned with their new music video "Casey Jones," an infectious revival of the Grateful Dead classic.

"Casey Jones" tells the tale of a locomotive engineer who became a folk hero after his death in a train crash in 1900. Filmed between the East and West Coasts, the video celebrates the 50th anniversary of the original Grateful Dead release and showcases iconic locations in NYC and Los Angeles.

"Casey Jones" features Dan Kelly of California-based reggae band Fortunate Youth and was brought to life by the production of original Bob Marley engineering legend Errol "Tuff Sound" Brown. The song is featured on Roots of Creation's "Grateful Dub: A Reggae-Infused Tribute To The Grateful Dead," which refreshes the Dead's most beloved songs for a new audience and hit #1 on Billboard's Reggae Albums chart.

Fronted by Brett Wilson, Roots of Creation has become known for their high energy live shows, packing venues all over the country, and has shared the stage with some of their legendary influences, including Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, and Michael Franti.
