FeelFree
A sound we all can call home. Listening to Washington D.C.-based band FeelFree's most recent EP entitled "The Ebb Tide", listeners are surrounded by infectious reggae rhythms layered with jazz harmonies. Mix in blues-tinged guitar work, catchy vocal melodies and a hard-hitting horn section, FeelFree's genre bending reggae is a brand new sound. Their diverse array of instrumentation allows them to effortlessly blend reggae, funk, jazz, and rock influences and has audiences fist-pumping and slow-dancing all in the same breath at one funky reggae party you won't want to miss. There is something for everyone in FeelFree's music, a song for any time of day.

Born and bred in the cultural "melting-pot" that is Washington D.C.'s metro area where styles as different as punk-rock, Central American reggaeton, and D.C. go-go music clash on the daily, FeelFree's own evolution has been ten years in the making. As youngsters, Andrew Pfeiffer, Evan Hulehan, and Bryan Frank began composing original tunes in seventh grade. Fast-forward 6 years, FeelFree began seriously writing, performing, and recording in and around Alexandria, VA after adding Garret Clausen on bass and Colin Cantfil on trumpet in 2010. In 2014, they added the multi-talented Davey Hoen to the mix on keyboards rounding out their vibrant sound.

Their live show exhibits FeelFree's raw, powerful energy and impressive live musicianship and has listeners hooked on their innovative, yet accessible tunes. They are quickly gaining popularity in and around Washington D.C. and now have 2 east coast tours under their belt. Slated to record a new album this winter, FeelFree's horizons are ever-expanding. Their music is for the everyday work-hard, play-hard music fan who appreciates life for the people we share it with, the challenges we face, and the good times we celebrate. FeelFree.

Of Good Nature
Of Good Nature
Of Good Nature is an indie rock-reggae five piece that was formed in Charlotte, NC in 2011 by front-man, guitarist Cameron Brown and drummer, percussionist Joey Vachon. Coming up in the thriving music scene in the Queen City has been vital to the band’s early success, as well as the blending of rich musical styles which transcends foundations of rock-reggae to progressive instrumentals of funk and rock n’ roll.

The 2011 debut album, Just Add Water, won Indie-Ville Reggae Album of the Year - Nashville, TN. On October 23rd 2015, their sophomore album, Life Worth Livin, debuted at #5 on the iTunes Top Reggae Album Chart. The band was featured in Irie Magazine : Cali Edition (November), scoring their own "Respect” multi-page write up; additionally, the title track was featured as The Pier’s “Mp3 Leak of the Week” and is being spun on a number of traditional and internet radio stations. The prolific crew has already made it back to the workshop, recently hitting the studio with Ted Bowne of Passafire. The project is planned for release Summer 2017.

The OGN live show is turning heads all over. Embarking their funky-reggae-party onto Train's Sail Across The Sun Cruise (Tampa, FL - Costa Maya, Mexico) in Febraury of 2017, the band teamed up with Michael Franti and Spearhead, Arrested Development, Natasha Beddingfield, and more. The notable Reggae Rise Up Festival in St. Petersburg, FL added Of Good Nature to the already stacked bill through their Artist Discovery Contest in early 2017, along with Slightly Stoopid, Dirty Heads, Iration, Steel Pulse, The Green and MANY more.

The group has also shared the stage with headliners like Sublime with Rome, Dropkick Murphys, Matt Nathanson, Keller Williams, Common Kings, George Porter Jr., Tomorrows Bad Seeds, The Movement, Tribal Seeds, The Supervillains, Ballyhoo! and many others. Be on the lookout OGNation, Of Good Nature's National Tour is lining up for 2017.
