Arise Roots produce quality high grade roots reggae music to make you move your feet and feel irie! The band formed in 2010 with the passion to create a new, unique roots-reggae band. Rising up from the streets of Los Angeles, the band had one goal: create a fresh reggae sound with a modern feel that appeals to all walks of life without compromising the true feel of roots reggae.
Arise Roots has shared the stage with artists such as Barrington Levy, Sister Carol, Gramps Morgan, Don Carlos, The Wailers, Luciano, Matisyahu, Midnite, Michael Rose, Gondwana, Big Youth, Dennis Al Capone, The Aggrolites, The Lions, Quinto Sol, Tristan Palmer, Sammy Dread, Ky-Mani Marley, Ken Boothe, Carlton and The Shoes, Freddie McGregor, The Meditations, The Expanders, Fortunate Youth, Natural Vibrations Dirty Heads, Rootz Underground, Tribal Seeds, Anuheau, and hip-hop legends, Public Enemy.
Southern California’s Arise Roots has helped keep the ever-evolving sound of reggae music grounded with their fresh take on ROOTS music. The true essence of their music is caught in their live performances, as captured on their soon-to-be-released Belly Up Live album.
The SoCal reggae group’s main aim is to bring a unique, modern interpretation to roots-reggae without compromising the true message & feel it’s pioneers intended for the genre. We’re here to share their 2016 performance that hosted a selection of tunes from their three albums, Lay Your Guns Down, Moving Forward, and Love & War. Their most recent album featured appearances from Belly Up reggae favorites, Hirie and E.N Young.
