“In Your Eyes” – Tribal Seeds
I’ve been listening to Bob Marley Radio a lot recently, and this band Tribal Seeds keeps popping up. They’re fantastic, every single song is fantastic. I don’t understand, but I am not going to ask questions. I am going to listen.
Tribal Seeds is a reggae band based in San Diego, California. They released a self-titled album on February 12, 2008 which was one of the eight iTunes “Best of 2008” reggae albums. With heavy influence from Bob Marley, Steel Pulse,and Midnite, the group is headed by two brothers, both raised in San Diego playing instruments since early childhood. The lead singer Steven Jacobo writes the lyrics for the group, and his brother, keyboardist Tony-Ray Jacobo, writes all their music along with the other band members. The other band members are Tony Navarro, guitarist; Vitor Navarro, bass; Carlos Verdugo, drummer; and Jose Rodriguez, percussion. They have toured throughout the United States as well as Mexico, Aruba, and Guam, and have shared the stage with MGMT, Gregg Allman, Earth Wind & Fire, Matisyahu, The Wailers, Gregory Isaacs, Stephen Marley, SOJA, Rebelution, and many more.
This is some of the most consistently high quality reggae I’ve heard in years, and I urge you to give every album a solid listen. I’m officially on Tribal Seeds repeat mode, if you need me I’ll be the guy with headphones on and eyes closed.
