Sol Seed
Sol Seed
Sol Seed brings a distinct sound combining the best elements of Reggae, Rock, Hip Hop and Psychedelic Jam to form a positive musical fusion that is uniquely their own. With conscious, thought-provoking lyrics, infectious reggae-laden grooves and high-energy, impressive live performances, Sol Seed creates an unforgettable live-music experience for people of all ages to enjoy. Since transplanting to Eugene from Southern Oregon three years ago, Sol Seed has swiftly gained powerful momentum in the NorthWest music scene, creating a diverse and loyal fan base all over Oregon, Hawaii, Washington, Montana and California. They have been awarded Eugene WOW Hall Awards "Best New Act" 2011 and "Favorite Local Band" 2012 and 2013, in addition to "Eugene's Best Band" two years running by Eugene Weekly readers, and recently won the prestigious title "Next Big Thing", another Eugene Weekly award. Dominating the NW summer festival circuit including Oregon Country Fair, North West World Reggae Festival, Kaleidoscope, Jefferson State Hemp Expo and more, Sol Seed has also shared the stage with national acts such as Ziggy Marley, Slightly Stoopid, The Green, Karl Denson, Pepper, The Expendables, Pacific Dub, Nappy Roots, Heavyweight Dub Champion and many more. After a number of small EP releases, the group released their first full-length album "Grown Deep" in September 2012, which immediately gained air-time on a number of radio stations all over the West Coast as well as the Hawaiian islands. After a very successful 2013 Kickstarter campaign to fund their next album release, "Family Tree", Sol Seed is in the studio with the full-lungth studio album slated for a Spring of 2014 release.
This Oregon based band got their start in early 2010 when songwriters Michael Lennon and Michael Sorensen joined hands with fellow friend and musician Benny Pezzano through a Southern Oregon open mic. An undeniable synergy was all but tangible as their creative forces coalesced, and they immediately began to grow a diverse collection of original music. They soon joined with Native American Award winning guitarist, Kenny Sequoia Lewis, and in October 2010, transplanted to Eugene to pursue life and music, where soon after they linked up with MC, Didgeridoo player and percussionist Sky Guasco. With 5 members, each member boasting very different influences and skill sets, Sol Seeds depth and volume of sound increased exponentially. With day-jobs being an ancient memory, the close-knit members of Sol Seed have fully embraced the band that has created much more- A movement, a lifestyle. With an infectious enthusiasm for life and an unequivocal knack to communicate its beauty, the group shares their message of perspectivism and unconditional love through uplifting music rooted in the soul. Sol Seed has certainly dug their roots. Coming to a city near you!
Dubbest
Dubbest
Since 2009, Dubbest has been forging its own path through the heavily forested reggae landscape, expertly infusing roots traditionalism with a refreshing improvisational savvy that calls to mind not only the studio experimentation of pioneering dub producers Osbourne “King Tubby” Ruddock and Lee “Scratch” Perry but also the real-time exploration of jam bands like the Grateful Dead and Phish. As friends in high school, guitarist Andrew MacKenzie, singer/melodica player Ryan Thaxter , bassist Sean Craffey, guitarist Cory Mahoney, and drummer Kyle Hancock shared a love of pop-punk and ska, bonding over bands like Black Flag, until they caught wind of Augustus Pablo’s 1974 dub classic Ital Dub. This was the gamechanger that set the stage for their current musical approach: using introspective, spacious bass and drum grooves to anchor a thickly-textured interplay of instruments, vocals, and timbres. With their third album, Light Flashes, Dubbest is poised for national recognition.
Perfect By Tomorrow
Perfect By Tomorrow
Four young jets from the small town of Stanwood, WA. put together a diverse mix of genres and talent that gives you 'Perfect By Tomorrow'. Throughout high school, the band became popular among students and performed at school events and house parties. With a positive message, PBT wants to spread their music in hope of inspiring other young musicians to love live music and live a positive life. In 2013 they linked up
with So-Cal band 'Stick Figure' and Georgia natives 'Passafire' and performed in Seattle on their Summer HotBox Tour. This was the band's first big show.

Since then, the band has sustained a fan base in Washington State and has released their first 8 - track, self-titled album on May 8th 2015. They find influences through bands like Sublime, Soundgarden, Nirvana, The Expendables, and Seedless. With a new album expected to come out the summer of 2016, it will be featuring a single track with Casey Sullivan of the band Seedless on the vocals. In the effort of making themselves known within the local scene they are relentlessly playing live shows and connecting with their fans, also catching some radio air time on 1150 KKNW & 89.3 KUGS (Western Washington University).
