Rebelution has developed into a front-runner for grassroots, independent
and tour driven music groups. Originally formed in 2004, members Eric
Rachmany (vocals / guitar), Rory Carey (keyboards), Wesley Finley
(drums), and Marley D. Williams (bass) met in college, while residing in
Isla Vista, a popular beachside community in Santa Barbara. New Orleans
saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist Khris Royal was recently added to
the group. It was there that the seeds to Rebelution’s future were planted
creating inspiring and engaging music that would leave their listeners with
the sense that they have the power to make this world a better place. The
band continuously tours across the USA, have ventured to South America,
Guam, Hawaii, Aruba, New Zealand and Europe, and performed at
Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits among
Winter of 2014 will see Rebelution cross the United States on their annual
“Winter Greens Tour.” Joining them on the 14-date run, will be Cris Cab.
Sold out performances include Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, CO,
the Pacific Amphitheater in Costa Mesa, CA, San Diego's Open Air
Theater, Hard Rock in Orlando, FL, Philly’s The Electric Factory, Hollywood
Palladium, Denver’s The Fillmore and The Fox Theatre in Oakland.
On Jan 10th 2012 Rebelution released Peace of Mind through their own
label 87 Music in partnership with Controlled Substance Sound Labs.
Peace of Mind was released as a multi-length triple-album, which includes
Acoustic and Dub versions of every song. Marking the highest chart debut
of Rebelution’s career, Peace of Mind debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top
200, #1 Reggae and #1 Independent albums as well as #4 on the iTunes
overall album chart. The band previously had four top 10 albums on the
Reggae chart and their 2009 release Bright Side of Life debuted at No. 54
on the Top 200 and #1 Reggae.
Peace of Mind, recently awarded the iTunes “Best Crossover Album”,
marks the first time Rebelution has expanded beyond their usual
self-production enlisting producers Michael Goldwasser (Easy Star
All-Stars), Amp Live (Zion-I), Yeti Beats (Kool Keith, George Clinton), Keith
Armstrong and Errol Brown (Stephen, Ziggy, Damian, and Bob Marley).
The album builds upon the band’s signature style while venturing into new
musical genres from the lush strings incorporated into the gentle “Route
Around” to the driving guitar and synths throughout “Lady In White”.
