The Sol Doc Project

Growing up where nature was his playground, Jeremy Knudsen developed an organic foundation just east of Point Reyes Seashore, in Fairfax, California, a small town nestled behind Mt. Tamalpais. Forever home to his heart, this area has served as his stomping grounds in search of medicine and surf. After years of travel, he's found himself collaborating again in these San Francisco outskirts.

Every song begins with a simple sound, a call within yourself to connect. Dedicated to collaborative elevation and influential vibrations, Sol Doc is on the periphery of the utmost dynamic, soul-binding hip-hop in the modern age. It is universally evident, beat after beat: Sol Doc enthusiastically embraces music as a utensil to enliven our planet, and the band backing him is one of the most fresh crew of music makers on the scene. They are well known for ripping grooves on the spot that jump a party to a whole new level by way of tight pocket funk, reggae drumming, and straight honey R 'n B keyboard parts. You got to check 'em out!.
