Inhaling alternative, hip-hop, reggae, and rock and exhaling one irresistible and infectious anthem after another, DIRTY HEADS—Jared “Dirty J” Watson [vocals], Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell [vocals/guitar], Jon Olazabal[percussion], Matt Ochoa [drums], & David Foral [bass]—have been redefining the sound of Southern California since 2003. With over 700 Millionaudio streams to date, the group first made a splash with their full-length 2008 debutAny Point In A Storm. Therecord yielded the RIAA gold-certified smash “Lay Me Down,” and it held #1 on theBillboardAlternative Chart for 11 weeks: longer than any single that year by any other artist. 2014’sSound of Changeearned acclaim from the likes ofEsquireand bowed at #8 on theBillboardTop 200 as its first single “My Sweet Summer” captured #3 on Alternative Radio. Meanwhile, the band’s 2016 self-titledDirty Headswent Top 15 on the Top 200 and spawned the smash “That’s All I Need,” which racked up over 10.5 million Spotify streams and counting.Noiseydescribed it as“Killer.”Beyond selling out countless shows around the world, the band headlined its ownHigh & Mighty Festival in 2017. Dirty Heads recently released their latest single, “Visions,” which is already climbing the alternative radio charts and garnered over 2 million streams.

The album’s wide-ranging sound is also due in part to the diverse team of collaborators: Jonas Jeberg [Demi Lovato, Juicy J, Jason Derulo],“Lay Me Down” partner-in-crime Rome [Enrique Iglesias] of Sublime with Rome, Blueprint [Jay-Z, Kanye West, Timbaland, Eminem, Nas, Prodigy], Oren Yoel [Miley Cyrus, Kanye West], HEAVY [Andrew McMahon], and The Score.
