Atlantic Beach, FL — Wednesday, August 7th, 2019 — It is from the strong pull of Reggae and Dub that gives birth to the sounds of ROOT SEA. The band members consist of both friends and family with a genuine love, passion, and respect for the music who set out to write, record and produce what would be their debut release ONE SEA.
The start of this album began with two friends, singer Joshua Shaw and bass guitar / producer Michael Stauch, feeling a spark of inspiration in the secluded mountains of Northern California in the fall of 2017. This is where the track ‘My Story’ was first recorded. This creative collaboration became the debut album ‘One Sea’. The first track ‘Horizon’ sends an environmental message regarding an end to further pollution of our oceans and waters from plastics. ‘Give the Medicine’ addresses the need for better access to medicinal Cannabis. ‘Tribute to the Farmer’ pays homage to the classic Peter Broggs tune ‘International Farmer’.
“The track ‘Give the Medicine’ is a good example of how they try and follow a more traditional groove. This is pure roots, a heavy reggae beat with a strong social message….
… The ever present ecological message strand jumps to the fore. Conservation, ethical food, it all runs through these songs and this album. It’s good to hear this antidote to the rampant consumerism and greed we have in today’s society…”
