Through The Roots
Through The Roots
From what was once a dream inspired by close friends, to humble beginnings filled with living room jams, late nights writing songs in the garage, backyard house parties and countless complaints from neighbors, San Diego-based reggae/rock band Through the Roots was born.

By coincidence in early 2008, Evan Hawkins and Taylor Boatwright met at a local guitar center. It was there that Evan shared his vision with Taylor, which eventually led to the beginning of TTR.

Evan and Taylor came from different musical backgrounds but shared some similar musical tastes, and both were very moved by reggae. They believed TTR would provide them with the perfect vehicle to spread their message and adopted a Cali reggae/rock concept.

In late 2008, Through the Roots added Brady O'Rear to round out the group's core. He brought his own musical tastes, complete with Hawaiian Islands reggae, and mixed them with those of Evan's and Taylor's to give TTR a broader range of ideas and influences to draw from.

Through the Roots quickly moved from the streets and backyard shows to touring in 2010 and soon hooked up for West Coast and national tours with some of the reggae/rock genres top headliners. The San Diego band eventually added Corrick Watson (lead guitar/vocals) and Budda Foster (bassist/keys) from Los Angeles to the talented, five-man mix.

With the band set, Through the Roots looks forward to continue spreading its positive messages, and showcasing its high energy shows to a growing legion of fans.
Write Minded
Write Minded
Write Minded was born when Sam and Jesse branched from a local hip-hop collective and began focusing on acoustic hip-hop. Jonah Greene hopped on the scene incorporating rhythm with drum and bongos. TurtleBear and Forrester merged with the crew from a short-lived psychedelic funk-rock band, and Wilson slid right in bringing tasty keys and synths synonymous with electronic hip-hop.
These six musicians got together in hopes of putting together a wild set for a show that ended up falling through. However, what formed out of the experience was way more valuable.
Things took off for the power group after the release of the Write Minded Demo. The band continued to write new material and just one year later, has released their debut album, "Eye Above".
Write Minded continues to develop a unique and undefinable blend of Hip-Hop, Funk, Reggae, Rock, etc. that captivates all listeners.
