ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With heavy influence from Bob Marley, Steel Pulse, and Midnite, this new and unique group brings a refreshing rock vibe to roots style reggae music. Spiritually driven and musically talented, Tribal Seeds have created an art form for rebel music enthusiast! With comparisons to the legendary group, The Police, they bring an authentic sound that reaches a broad demographic.

The group is headed by two brothers, both raised playing instruments since early childhood in San Diego. The lead singer Steven writes the lyrics for the group, and his brother Tony-Ray along with the band produces all their music. They have toured throughout North America as well as Mexico and Hawaii, and have shared the stage with Matisyahu, The Wailers and Gregory Issacs, just to name a few.

My son is currently in prison & heard Tribal Seeds on a radio station. He wrote to me and asked if I could order him the CD. He never asks me for anything & since this was a simple request, I ordered for him. He wrote that he did receive the CD & is very happy. Thank you so much for your music.

"Goes to show how infectious good reggae music can be..."
I caught this San Diego-based band at a recent free outdoor concert down by the beach (always a good thing), and they had a crowd of Sunday afternoon sun worshippers, picnickers, kids, older folks and people who looked like they'd come straight from church caught up in the vibes alongside the more obvious reggae fans. Goes to show how infectious good reggae music can be. Tribal Seeds are both good and infectious, managing to be so without softening the sound or the message. True to the botanical implications of their name, they go for the roots. Lead singer Steven Rene Jacobo has a moderately Marley-ish vocal quality and an urgency that reminds me of Steel Pulse's David Hinds (now that I think of it, he sounds kind of like African reggae singer Majek Fashek as well). He's the group's lyricist also, showing via the likes of "Creator," "Rasta, Refuse It" and "Jah Stone" that he's got a lot more than earthly things on his mind. Musically, the group is tight and unified, with lead guitarist Marc Munoz tearing off some sharp solos that help give the overall sound a discernible Latino edge befitting the heritage of most of Tribal Seeds' members. Though familiar reggae themes abound, some of the songs ("Rider," "Dolls Dancing," "Dark Angel") go for a decidedly abstract feel that keeps predictability at bay and merits close listening apart from just letting the exceptional riddims (some of which bring to mind peak-era Roots Radics) carry you away. Impressive stuff, enough so that if I have to pay to see these guys next time, I gladly will.

Self titled album is hard hitting!
With their first "demo" album (Youth Rebellion), Tribal Seeds arrived on the music scene with great style, strong lyrics, and a clear message... for the YOUTH. Their self titled and official full length album, Tribal Seeds reaffirms their style and adds to it, a strong production that completely revamps the seven re-recorded tracks and introduces eight new tracks for a peek into where the band seems to be heading. Fifteen, hard hitting tracks all worthy of many, many listens for years to come. Well worth adding to your Reggae/ROCK collection.

"...utterly magnetic."
TRIBAL SEEDS - Tribal Seeds
Label: Indie
Genre: Roots Rock Reggae
Rating: 4.5 outta 5

Growing up in San Diego, I’ve never felt like there was a shortage of reggae or ska talent to nibble on when overcome by the rocksteady munchies. Certainly, the D’ego has been a vortex for such music in the United States as far back as I can remember. In spite of the broad buffet of talent that permeates our clubs and beaches, few local acts capture the roots vibe quite like Tribal Seeds. Their new self-titled album boasts 15 tracks – every one a testament to the music’s essence: raising social conscious, government resistance, repatriation, irie life, and, of course, Raaasta-faariii.

From the revolutionary opener, “Youth Rebellion,” to the album’s desperately hopeful closer, “Dark Angel,” Tribal Seeds manages to take the listener on a ride through reggae history – rolling a bountiful spliff of Toots, Marley, Steele Pulse and Lee “Scratch” Perry. Like said spliff, this is music to be shared – it’s stylistic familiarity makes it broadly digestible, and Tribal’s adept songwriting and vigorous live performance make their music utterly magnetic.
