Healing - Rebelution
On our worldwide journey to introduce some great music we travel to Santa Barbara, California to meet our next LCM featured artists Rebelution. A big thank you to our friends at Laurel Canyon Radio for the introduction. Rebelution will soon follow up their Grammy-nominated 2016 album 'Falling Into Place' with another amazing studio album (their sixth) full of their signature take on modern reggae. 'Free Rein' features a band at the top of its game, delivering anthems that will rock their core audience at their sold-out live shows, while also exploring new sounds, like the acoustic "Healing," the moody "Constellation," and collaborations with two of the hottest young Jamaican producers around Phillip "Winta" James and Don Corleon. Our LCM #SongOfTheDay is a great summer song and the first single 'Healing'. The new album is due for release on June 15th.
Fourteen years into an effervescent career, California reggae band and touring juggernaut Rebelution remains abundantly creative. Its members (singer/guitarist/lyricist Eric Rachmany, keyboardist Rory Carey, drummer Wesley Finley, and bassist Marley D. Williams) are as focused and committed as they are easygoing and laid-back. And they haven’t lost a step since 'Falling Into Place', their 2016 studio album, became the band’s fourth release to top the Billboard reggae chart, earning them their first ever Grammy nomination in the category of Best Reggae Album. Ever expanding and reaching wider audiences, the Rebelution phenomenon continues to spread good vibes on tour, and in the studio.
'Free Rein', their sixth studio album, while still rooted in the Jamaican inspiration that Rebelution’s songs and sounds have always paid homage to, takes experimental leaps and new adventures too, welcoming old fans and new audiences alike. The musicians collaborated with Jamaican artists on three of the 12 new tracks. Don Corleon (Sean Paul, Rihanna) produced “Rise On Top,” a pointed reflection on celebrity and ambition; and Winta James, producer for Damian Marley and Chronixx, worked with the band on “Settle Down Easy” and “City Life,” two songs that reflect a more confessional perspective.
With 'Free Rein', Rebelution is poised to continue spreading the joy. The band boasts an impressive 85 million spins on their Top 5 Spotify tracks alone, and will continue playing sold-out shows as well as taking the coveted headlining slots at some of the nation’s top festivals this year. Additionally, Rebelution continues to transcend the world of music and break barriers with their entrepreneurial prowess.
