With the combinations of island music, roots reggae, and hip-hop, Spawnbreezie has formed a new kind of sound. Combining the percussions of hip-hop, the skank of reggae and the vocals of the Island music, he calls it, "Island Hip Hop". Spawnbreezie has performed for numerous venues: night clubs, parties, weddings, release parties and has done numerous shows to give back to the community.
In 2002..., Spawnbreezie and his family, formed a family band called, "Le Atalua Breeze Band". And being a part of the Breeze Band, he thought it was only fair to represent it wherever his music took him. At that time he was going by the stage name of "Spawn" and was in the making of his solo debut album.
In 2005-06, he had finished 12 hot tracks but due to a lack of serious promotion, the album went unnoticed. With persistence and determination, Spawnbreezie came back in 2007 along with the help of his brothers, and released their first band album, "Breezin' All Nite". The sound of Island Hip-Hop began to grow into the ears and radios throughout the city of Independence.
With numerous feedback and a calling for an encore from the locals, on March 21, 2008, Spawnbreezie released his debut solo album called, "Independence Soldiers". With awesome reviews in the local area and great feedback from MySpace listeners, Spawnbreezie is ready to take the world by storm.
Quickly becoming one of Santa Cruz's next premier Reggae/Rock groups, Pacific Roots is building their popularity by stirring the crowd in with their upbeat reggae jams thrown around with punk rock swells and solos, mixed melodiously to produce an original Cali based sound and vibe. The group has shared the stage with well known artists such as, Jamaican reggae legends Sly and Robbie, New Kingston, Black Uhuru, The Expendables, The Hold Up, The Expanders, Tomorrow's Bad Seeds, Arise Roots, Josh Heinrichs, and more. Their self titled debut album, produced by Adam Paterson of The Expendables, is available now!
