ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Junior Williams moved from Kingston, Jamaica to America and founded his band in the city that boasts the country's best music scene: Eau Claire.

Irie Sol's latest single "Roccupy the Dome" is a cut to protest the cuts to the arts and humanities in Wisconsin and worldwide. Education is how imagination grows, and its abundant harvest safeguards our local, global, and civil liberties.

Irie Sol's first album SOLSTICE (2009) received rave reviews. In 2011, the band released a vinyl album. They journeyed to an unlikely place to record a reggae/hip hop album: Nashville. After driving all night to Tennessee, the band set up in the studio and tracked the old-school way, live in every sense. The analog recording Live in Nashville is available at Volume One's Local Store (Eau Claire, Wisconsin). The album was recorded at Nashville's Welcome to 1979 Studio by Chris Mara (who's produced artists from Juvenile to the Gin Blossoms) and will be released on Live in 79 (his all analog, all vinyl, all live label).

With band-members of African, French, German, Haitian, Indian, Irish, Jamaican, Native American, Scandinavian, and Sicilian ancestries, Irie Sol is, in this sense, world roots music. Wha gwan, cdbabies? Are ya feelin' Irie? Love and positivity to you and yours!
