“Roots on the bottom and pop on the top.”
Our unique sound features Reggae-In-Fusion, that is reggae fused with other musical genres – pop, folk, modern country, rhythm & blues, gospel/Christian contemp, hip-hop, soft rock, rockabilly, jazz-funk, honky-tonk, Delta blues, Trinidadian Calypso/Soca, even with Cajun Zydeco, Creole Zouk, Brazilian Bossanova/Samba – basically wherever the songs, our eclectic influences and creativity, and our artists take us – or infusing those same musical genres with the rhythms and the grooves of lover’s rock or dancehall reggae. We are reggae fusion, or reggae infusion, or reggaeinfusion with American soul.
