Through the Roots
THROUGH THE ROOTS also shared the stage in 2011 with international acts such as Slightly Stoopid, Tech Nine, The Expendables, The Green, Tribal Seeds, Iration, Tomorrows Bad Seeds, The Supervillains, The B Foundation, and Rebelution. To cap off the impressive 12-month span, THROUGH THE ROOTS was nominated for "Breakout Artist of the Year" for The Pier awards and left their fast growing base of fans anxiously awaiting 2012 for more music and shows across the country.
In 2012, THROUGH THE ROOTS plans to release a new ep before the fall and a full length album before the end of the year. The band also plans to revisit many of those popular venues THROUGH THE ROOTS played in 2011 as well as visit new locations across the country, spreading their positive music and thrilling fans with their high-energy shows.
The "Here To Stay" CD quickly rose on the iTunes reggae Top 200 chart to No. 2 in the first week and remained amongst the best selling CDs in 2011 as more and more THROUGH THE ROOTS fans were turned on by the catchy vibes and soothing mixture of TTR's music. The popular CD garnered air time on the West Coast and in Hawaii, adding to a six-song EP that THROUGH THE ROOTS put out in 2008, with both remaining in iTunes' top 50 selling reggae CDs for 2011.
THROUGH THE ROOTS came together as a band in 2008 and blended its unique sounds of reggae and rock music. TTR quickly captured music fans' attention all over the West Coast as the band rose in popularity and became a must-see show while sharing the stage with highly respected groups like Rebelution, Iration, Pepper, Passafire, Tribal Seeds, Natural Vibrations and Alborosie, in various venues across the United States.
THROUGH THE ROOTS, led by lead vocalist Evan Hawkins, one of the rising young stars in Cali-Reggae music, and a talented supporting cast in Bryan Jackson (Bass), Brady O'Rear (Keys), Taylor Boatwright (Drums, Vocals) and Cris Cruz (Guitar/Keys), plans to continue touring through 2012 and expand TTR's budding tour schedule while sharing their inspiring music. Hawkins, Jackson, Boatwright and Cruz, all from San Diego, and O'Rear, from Hilo, Hawaii, became friends in college and they quickly melted into a musical chemistry that has fueled THROUGH THE ROOTS' rise to a highly sought after
