Rising up out out of the fertile soil of Southern Oregon's Rogue Valley, the group of Intergalatic Reggae Revolutionaries known as Indubious come to spread high vibes through their earth-shattering sound. Their sound is an eclectic mix of reggae, dance hall and new roots reggae, visionary lyrical messages and wordplay, 2 and 3 part harmonies, and electro funk fusion jams creating a sound destined to change the face of music. Leaving audiences stunned and downright amazed, this genre-bending reggae power trio comes pumping a positive message, and wielding impressive instrumental skill.
Their infectious reggae driven sound has exploded both national and international markets, leaving in the wake the makings of a conscious revolution. Recently winning KTVL's Last Band Standing Competition, and the International MMA (Global Marijuana Music Award) 2010 for "Best Reggae" for their song "Ganja Weed", Indubious has made a huge impact on the West Coast's conscious music scene, gaining respect among some of the largest reggae touring acts, sharing the stage with greats such as Blondie, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, Junior Reid, Pato Banton, Groundation, Rootz Underground, and Prezident Brown to name a few. Their 2009 release, "Cosmic Seed" debuted at #28 on the CMJ charts "New World" category, and was the most added album on CMJ at the time of release. Their notoriety and high energy stage show has caught the eye of Chris Deckker, founder of the festival giant, Earthdance, who has taken them on as business director for the band.
The 3 piece band is comprised of bass virtuoso and lyrical acrobat, Spencer "Skip Wicked" Burton, the exceptional keys, songwriting, and lyrical ability of his brother Evan "Evton B" Burton, and the newest addition, the drum phenom, Matthew T. Wells. Indubious has been building a following on the west coast over the past few years with positive messages in their music, live shows and community outreach. Indubious is described as powerful, epic, and uplifting in not only sound and lyrics, but in pure energy and spirit in which they vibrantly project. They have adopted the unofficial motto of "Live Indubiously," meaning living life without doubt and fear and a full respect for all things, good and bad. "Our mission is to reconnect the people of the world with rightful living, rightful speaking through teaching the everlasting blessings of service to humanity, of service to our higher purpose and higher selves. Our gift is music - and through our music we wish to speak the truth in an effort to inspire others to do the same, to change the vibration of our planet and help others express the true loving nature within us all." says Spencer.
The Indubious boys claim the circumstances in their lives have made them who they are today and they would not change anything; that everything is a blessing. "We have always felt that that the best outlet for our message would be through music and to see this all materializing for us is more than we ever could have asked for," says Evan. "If we could help just one person through our music then it would all be worthwhile but to see the response that we are getting and the potential impact we could have on the world is leaving us amazed and humbled." Through their record label and humanitarian effort, Righteous Sound Productions, the boys from Indubious continue to spread their influence by donating money to local schools, foundations and an array of different organizations and causes with no plan to stop anytime soon. "Life is about giving, so we hope to inspire others to serve mankind as well." says Spencer.
The Indubious crew, along with opening act, Alcyon Massive, will hit the road early spring 2011 on a fully publicized west coast tour promoting the release of their second album, "Cosmic Seed." This highly anticipated followup album to their first release, "Fresh Leaves." is an undeniable powerhouse of a record. Featuring 15 new tracks and some heavyweight guest artists such as the legendary Prezident Brown and Alcyon Massive, "Cosmic Seed" is destined to become a classic. Both albums are available now on itunes, cdbaby, and through their websites.
"The Boys from Maui," Maoli are back and this time with their new CD release entitled, "Arise". Nominees of the Hawaiian Music Awards and the Na Hoku Hanohano Music Awards, Maoli have returned fresher than ever and their newest radio hit, "Blew It" is the precursor release from this 3rd album, which is undeniably destined for national appeal and worldwide attention.
The early beginnings of Maoli (meaning "Native" in Hawaiian) started in Maui with Glenn Awong, a 14-year-old with a passion for music, and Kana Akiu-Corpuz. In their sophomore year, the aspiring vocalist and bassist began writing original music at the encouragement of their high school teacher. It was also during this time that Glenn started recording demos of his songs. By the time he reached his senior year, Glenn was ready to share his music with a greater audience.
Jordan describes his life as a musician as “a journey guided by the wind… I live, breathe, sing, and search for passion, inspiration and adventure like a gypsy. I try not to plan too much – embracing the moments I have for what they are and when they come.” His music is characteristic of such a statement in its eclectic nature and continually evolving style. You won’t find Jordan singing, playing, or writing only a single genre. His versatility reflects his intent to express all angles of emotions, experiences and life happenstance. In his live performances, you can feel this truth as he puts his heart and soul into the mic and drawing you into the stories. From stories of introspection and heartbreak, to stories of dancing and sunny days, you’re guaranteed to walk away with truth about his journey in life. You can really get to know him through his music if you’re willing to take the time to pay attention.
“I can’t sit back and play a single type or style of music. Life isn’t that simple to me and for everyone else that breathes air. Sometimes I just wanna skank and enjoy the sunshine and other days it’s the opposite. If my music was all the same I would be lying to you, my listener, about my journey. The last thing I want to create is uninspired music.” -Jordan T.
