Spawnbreezie
Spawnbreezie
As a young boy, Spawnbreezie grew up listening to his father make music. Whether rehearsing in the garage or on stage at performances. Music was just as much an influence to him as his father was. So much in fact that he learned to play drums and piano before entering grade school. Curious and excited about his life's involvement with music, at 16 years of age he learned to play the guitar and eventually acquired skills of a bassist. Spawnbreezie then realized that at a young age, music was not only a talent but a passion that now became his life. At age 17, Spawnbreezie made a commitment to his love and talent to pursue a career of music. With the combinations of island music, roots reggae, r & b, and hip-hop, Spawnbreezie has crafted a new kind of sound. Combining the percussions of hip-hop, the skank of reggae and the vocals of the Island music, he calls it, "Island Hip Hop". In 2002, Spawnbreezie and his family formed a band called, "Le Atalua Breeze Band". Being a part of the Breeze Band, he thought it was only fair to represent them wherever his music took him. At that time he was going by the stage name of "Spawn" and was in the making of his solo debut album. In 2005, Spawn began his solo career and pursued it with great leaps of faith. In transition of leaving "Le Atalua Breeze Band" to becoming a solo artist, he took the word "Breeze" with him in this new journey and introduced himself as Spawnbreezie.

In 2008, Spawnbreezie released his first solo album called "Independent Soldiers". In 2009, he released his sophomore album titled "Welcome to Zion". The sound of Island hip-hop began to grow, gaining the attention of the people and radio stations across the South Pacific. It was clear at that point that Spawnbreezie had an opportunity to voice his music to a forum of listeners.

He took advantage of the forum and talked about the trials that he faced as a person and an artist. He expressed his emotions through his music and wrote about his life experiences. With the chance to voice his experiences in this industry, he released his 3rd album "Dear Billy" with the smash hit "Oh My Goodness" and YouTube hit "Don't Let Go" with over 1 million views each. But those are just some of many fan favorites. This album has allowed Spawnbreezie to enter into new territories in his career, not only is he opening up the eyes of music lovers everywhere, but also their ears and hearts. With upcoming albums he is sure to propel this not only himself into superstardom but also bring much need attention to the whole Island reggae genre and positive music as a whole.

True Press
True Press
True Press is from Los Angeles, CA pushing to bring their progressive reggae sound to new audiences. The message is simple: bring people together, rise up, unite and enjoy life! Music has a tendency of bringing us together and taking us for a ride, and True Press is exactly that. The group met in Monrovia, CA and soon after began jamming in an abandoned house with no electricity except for the 100 foot extension chord running from the house next door to provide whatever power they could 'borrow'. Pedro, Johnny and KP began jammin around 2006 with Gyl Bonus earning his spot in 2010 shredding lead guitar. Not long after, True Press released their first EP "Sweet Reggae"and have been determined to bring their message wherever they go. With recent additions, Dan Kirihara, Pat Ruiz and Chris Parkhurst the group is ready with a new live energy and sound to rock any venue. Their first national tour "It's All A Jam" supporting Fortunate Youth kicks off early March 2014 along with their first full length album titled "Anything's Possible"... From daily struggles to world news, the message really is simple. It's more of a movement..... a TRUE PRESS !!!
