Mystic Bowie's Talking Dreads
Mystic Bowie's Talking Dreads
alking Dreads began as a project born from the audacious notion that hardcore Heads-lovers wouldn’t mind a tinkering or two with their favorite Talking Heads tunes, and there is a lot of great music here that will make you stop, listen and smile a little bit more as you’re grooving along to the joyous rhythms and jubilant spirit of the island vibe.

Talking Dreads is the brainchild of Head Dread, Mystic Bowie, a Jamaican artist whose long and close relationship with Chris Franz and Tina Weymouth, founding members of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, began when he joined the latter group as a singer in 1996. He then recorded and performed with Tom Tom Club for nearly twenty years and continues to bear fruit from their unending collaborations.

This inaugural effort from Talking Dreads features an amazing lineup of stellar reggae stalwarts including Freddie McGregor [‘Rastaman Camp’, Bobby Babylon], ska-guitar master Ernest Ranglin (session player and arranger of Millie’s smash ‘My Boy Lollipop’, the Melodians ‘Rivers Of Babylon’, and countless other tracks], and Tarrus Reilly (’Start Anew’, ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’) as well as a little help from punk-pop diva Cindy Wilson of The B-52s (‘Rock Lobster’, ‘Love
Shamans of Sound
Shamans of Sound
Shamans were once found in all cultures and communities around the world, and these spiritual healers provided guidance to the people, helping them navigate the twists and turns of life, death and culture. Coming straight from the heart of Babylon itself in Washington, D.C. the Shamans of Sound are a talented group of musicians who have joined together to create sonic alchemy with conscious, groove oriented riddims. The Shamans of Sound are united together in a common purpose; healing of the nation through their spiritual, mind altering sounds and vibrations.

A new project, the band members are all veterans of the DC scene, hailing from other bands such as Nappy Riddem, Incwell, Dub City Renegades, Awthentik, Feel Free and Tropik Sol. A few band members have deep local roots, while others grew up in far flung places like Germany, Philippines, Italy and Russia. Their diversity is their strength as they bring a variety of experiences and influences to the table, ranging from reggae and dub to hip-hop, r&b and dancehall. Its their shared love of reggae which brings everyone together with the goal of making the world a better place with conscious, uplifting music. In addition to all of the talented musicians in the band, The Shamans of Sound will feature a variety of vocalists to rock the mic on their original riddims.

Not just another reggae band, the best way to experience the Shamans of Sound is live in concert, which is always exciting as the group is not afraid to experiment and incorporate new elements into their sound. This is just the opening salvo from The Shamans of Sound, they have surprises and songs in store coming soon. Their music is like life, with its different facets, hitting you with lyrics that are conscious, that are tragic, but also full of joy and humor. The Shamans of Sound have arrived and they are ready to stimulate the mind, soothe the soul and relax the body….

The Shamans of Sound self-titled debut single is coming out just in time for Summer, and these are the vibes you want wafting through the air as you chill in your hammock...
