Through The Roots
Formed in the Summer of 2008, San Diego based band Through the Roots have been covering ground and making waves across the United States. Fusing rock and electronic elements with a strong roots reggae foundation, Through the Roots have developed a unique sound and experience that captivates audiences during their live performances.
2011 proved to be a very successful year for Through the Roots. The band released the EP “Here to Stay” in the Spring that debuted at #2 on the iTunes Reggae Chart. On top of the EP release, Through the Roots hit the road hard playing over 140 shows in 38 of the nations 50 states. They supported nationally recognized artists such as Iration, Tribal Seeds, and The Green on their respective national tours. This all culminated to the band being nominated for and winning Pier Magazine’s award for 2011 Breakout Artist of the Year.
Feeding off of the success seen in 2011, Through the Roots already has big plans for 2012. In February, they will be linking up with The Expendables for their 2012 Winter Blackout Tour. Also, a new studio album is already in pre-production with an expected release date sometime during the Spring. Be sure to keep an eye out for them as the year progresses.
Homegrown in Denver Colorado, Tatanka is a three-piece specializing in the sounds of dub, progressive reggae, and electro soundscapes. Heavy Caribbean drum and bass grooves provide the pulse for the party as the music invites you to get down and dirty. This trio of denver dub samurai's just recently released they re first studio E.P. entitled Sounds in Technicolor. Sounds in Technicolor has reached over 4,000 downloads through Tatanka's website and social networking sites. The release has been dubbed as drum and bass music for a new generation, a twist on new and old reggae riddim's and an instant classic. The pulsing basslines provided by Tatanka's Malonestar seem to rock the mind into trance while Champian's guitar work and The Mexico's hi-hat, snare and kick drum 4/4 playing styles pepper over the top of the album's four track's almost flawlessly.
Tatanka has shared the stage with many major national and international acts that include but are not limited to: Easy Star All-Stars, The Black Seeds, John Brown's Body, The Expendables, Groundation, Pretty Lights, Passafire and more. The Tatanka trio continues to push they're sound to the next level. Dub rock Syndicate recently gave the boys the title "the up and coming kings of dubtronic." Tatanka has now been touring for over two years and will continue to do so. ChampIAN, The Malonestar and The Mexico are all determined to bring the dub madness to a city near you. TATANKA MASSIVE!
Topping iTunes Reggae Charts with their latest release, Cali-HI, Mystic Roots Band spent 2011 performing at many of the biggest summer music festivals across the US before heading to Japan, Guam and Hawaii to entertain the US Troops abroad. Serving up an original style based in reggae, hip-hop, and dancehall (with overtones of rock, funk, and ska), an MRB live concert guarantees not just at music for your ears, but also a high-energy show and powerful experience you'll never forget. This Chico, CA based group brings a brand new sound while embracing the nature of roots reggae wholeheartedly and performing it with smooth vocals/harmonies, energetic freestyles and beat-boxing, all over a solid groove. The music and lyrics are catchy and upbeat, yet with a powerful, positive message. The musicianship of the players is top notch and arrangements are often complex and always interesting. The band tours the U.S. full-time, playing shows with some of the biggest names in reggae, hip hop, and rock. MRB promotes positivity and spreads a conscious message while still having a good time and keeping the party going. Fans describe MRB's music as a refreshing, energetic, and cutting-edge sound that people are immediately drawn to. As a result, MRB has developed an ever-growing legion of loyal fans. This fan base exists not only in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, but also in Europe, Latin America, Australia, and even several regions of Asia.
I am currently working as a solo artist on my EP album "Positive Mentality." The album will be out sometime November of 2013 and is being produced by EN Young from the band Tribal Seeds of San Diego. I can't explain how excited I am to have this opportunity and to begin my musical journey. Trying to band together some solid guys so when the album drops we can start playing live shows in and around Colorado. Much love to the other musicians out there spreading love and positivity! We can all prosper if we all work together. Hope you dig the tunes which have, until now, all been independently produced. A fusion of Reggae, blues, r&b, jazz, and even hip hop is what makes this sound unique. Enjoy!
