about

With the goal of continuing the momentum of their debut EP, Arise Roots began production of their first full length album. They’ve spent the last year sharing the stage with some of the biggest touring acts in reggae such as, Barrington Levy, Kymani Marley, The Wailers, Don Carlos, Gondwana, Midnite and even hip hop heavy hitters, Public Enemy.

The goal of Arise Roots is to create a fresh reggae sound with a modern feel that appeals to all ages and races, but one that doesn’t compromise the true feel of roots reggae. Anybody who has had the opportunity to witness the band play a live show understands the powerful sound and positive vibrations that they produce. “Moving Forward” was recorded at top Los Angeles studio Kingsize Soundlabs with the help of veteran sound engineers Brian Dixon and Richard Robinson.

With a solid foundation of sound, Brian Wallace was brought in to master the album and add all the finishing touches. Always paying homage to past reggae legends, the album Moving Forward brings to mind the influences of Black Uhuru, Dennis Brown, Bob Marley and The Wailers, Israel Vibrations, Alton Ellis and Gregory Isaacs. From a broader view, “Moving Forward” is an album for the people that creates consciousness with a modern edge, yet grounded in traditional roots.
