ARTIST PROFILE | Arise Roots

ReggaeRoots

Arise Roots was formed in 2010 with the intent to create a new and unique roots-reggae band which reflects their collective passions. 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.

The all-star cast of musicians was recruited for their talent and appreciation of classic reggae styles. After a vigorous search, Arise Roots became host to six extremely talented individuals who had already made a name for themselves performing in numerous local reggae bands as well as backing various reggae legends touring through Southern California with veteran Hashim "Scorpion" Russell holding steady on drums, Rudy Covarrubias towering on bass, and Todd Johnson adding his trademark mix of keys and harmonies, the band had secured a dynamic rhythm section. Chris Brennan was called upon for his impeccable rhythm guitar and soulful backing vocals while lead guitarist Robert Sotelo adds his unmistakable signature style of riffs and licks. Lead vocalist, Karim Israel coming from a lineage of Jamaican vocalists, was added to the group, providing his raw, sultry flow which pairs perfectly with his powerful lyrics.

In 2010, the band released their first EP titled, “Lay Your Guns Down.” They later received recognition with the 2013 release of their first full-length album, “Moving Forward.” In 2014 Arise Roots linked with E.N Young at Imperial Sound Recording Studio to record “Love and War.” In 2016 the popular single “Rootsman Town” featuring Capleton was released independently with a music video that garnered millions of views on YouTube and continues to be one of their more popular songs. In the midst of a worldwide pandemic, Arise Roots released their highly anticipated LP “Pathways” in June of 2020 on Ineffable Records. Touching on everything from social issues to love songs and cementing their place in the reggae scene with their hit single “Come and Get It,” the album was a huge success for the band. The highly praised album features some of the biggest names in reggae such as Kyle McDonald of Slightly Stoopid, Eric Rachmany of Rebelution, Lutan Fyah, Nattali Rize and Turbulence.

Throughout their time together, Arise Roots has shared the stage with artists such as Barrington Levy, Steel Pulse, Capleton, Sister Carol, Gramps Morgan, Don Carlos, The Wailers, Luciano, Matisyahu, Midnite, Michael Rose, Gondwana, Cultura Profetica, Big Youth, The Aggrolites, Tristan Palmer, Sammy Dread, Stephen Marley, Ky-Mani Marley, Ken Boothe, Carlton and The Shoes, Freddie McGregor, The Meditations, Rebelution, Slightly Stoopid, Fortunate Youth, Hirie, Dirty Heads, Tribal Seeds, Iration and many more. Likewise they have also shared stages with hip-hop legends such as KRS One, Public Enemy, Redman and Method Man of the Wu Tang Clan.

As today’s reggae music scene has branched out into multiple sub-genres, 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, so make sure to keep an eye out for Arise Roots coming to a city near you.
