Homegrown on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, our six band members are bound by the love for music. Having toured the local music scene for about 8 years, we have gained many achievements that have gained us recognition in the music circles. Some of these achievements include a 3rd place standing in Brown Bags to Stardom 2001, 2nd place standing in Battle of the Bands at Zanza Bar 2001, and crowned 2005 Maitai rumble champions. Considered as roots, rock, reggae, our music is a combination of uptempo rhythms and strong energy used to keep the positive reggae vibe alive. We consider our music lyrically driven, putting focus on true to self messages. We have just released our first album entitled "Onward," which was self produced, recorded, and mixed. While we have over 18 originals, some of which are included on "Onward", that we can call ours, we still pay tribute to artists who inspire us by continuing to play their music. As we continue to play, our goal is to make a mark in reggae history, to spread our messages across the world through music, and to share our love for music with everyone. Sold as is.
