Simpkin Project plays a multi-faceted blend of reggae and Americana that varies greatly on its exterior layers but only atop the organic rhythms of reggae music. Their sound has been described as "uncompromising… blending authentic roots reggae rhythms with a wall-of-sound production style." The lyrical compositions of frontman Phil Simpkin range "from the simply truthful to the stirringly anthemic." Their dedication and respect for reggae music is both seen and heard through their unique, enthusiastic live performances, songwriting style and studio recordings.




WHEELAND BROTHERS

From a stretch of forgotten coast in Southern California the Wheeland Brothers release their 3rd full length album "Lost In The Key of Sea". Singer/songwriter Travis Wheeland describes the album as "songs like daytime sunshine; songs that are kind of like nighttime soul-searching; songs that are kind of about meeting yourself where you're at or thinking about the distant horizon."
This is more than music, this is a lifestyle.
