To describe their live show: first imagine both male and female lead vocals interweaving over steady, thumping bass and drums, textural, bubbling organs and keyboards, with sweet yet gritty lead guitar licks and innovative, tasty percussion overlay--occasionally mixing in the sizzling sounds of brass. Add to that a well-crafted set of songs with messages of community, self-worth, struggle, joy, action and love--sonically ranging from massive beat-based sound to sensitive ballads. A Soul Majestic concert in a nutshell: unique and sincere songwriting, soul-shaking reggae grooves, and a spontaneous, uplifting, and crowd interactive stage show.
Discography: Soul Majestic’s self-titled debut album, released in 2002, was followed up in 2004 with a full band exodus to the birthplace of reggae and origin of the reggae genre, the island of Jamaica. While there, they recorded their second album, entitled Until That Day, at Bob Marley’s Tuff Gong Studio in Kingston, enlisting the involvement of some of their heroes like Sly and Robbie and Anthony B. In July of 2009, their third and highly anticipated album entitled Better World was released featuring 13 diverse tracks including collaborations with Sly and Robbie, Tony Moses and Trinidad’s Queen Omega, as well as production and a handful of rhythms by Million 7 Sound. Their most innovative work to date, Better World quickly gained notice and was placed in rotation on reggae radio programs worldwide, playing on radio as far off as the Philippines, Portugal, and Europe. Better World was listed on the Top 10 international reggae albums of 2009 by Galaxy radio in Canada.
What’s new: Since releasing their third album, Better World, in 2009, the band has released singles including “Medical Condition ” (accompanied by a music video which can be viewed at www.youtube.com/soulmajestic), and "Stay With Me," which are which are both available now on iTunes. The band is now hard at work writing and recording material for their new album.
