OF GOOD NATURE
An indie rock-reggae five piece that was formed in Charlotte, NC in 2011. 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. Their sophomore album, Life Worth Livin, debuted at #5 on the iTunes Top Reggae Album Chart in 2015. 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 later this year.
The 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 recently added OGN 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. Of Good Nature's National Tour is lining up for 2017. Stay on the lookout OGNation.

United in the heart of Richmond, Virginia in 2015, Jouwala Collective blends Gnawa music, traditional African and spiritual songs characterized by trance inducing chants and rhythms, with modern influences of funk, jam, jazz, rock, soul, reggae, blues, chaabi and electronic. Erie synth notes create a soft background over which are laid tribal tones of instruments from a world away resulting in an atmosphere of spiritual healing. Incredibly fast, dynamic drum rhythms keep your feet moving while the overall sound holds you in a dreamlike trance. Electric guitars and rock themes interweave so that the mood, and the room, can be transformed immediately and without warning. Set to release their debut album in early 2018, Jouwala Collective is a unique musical force soon to be reckoned with.
