IRIE SOL: ABOUT THE BAND

 

Erupting out of the Twin Cities and Eau Claire, WI with a musical blend that reflects the diversity of its band members—who hail from Kingston, Jamaica; Providence, RI; Chicago, IL; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN; and Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls, WI—Irie Sol delivers authentic Jamaican chat/DJing and soaring, soulful melodies backed by blazing bebop horns, wailing guitar, and tight drum and bass. The band has shared bills with The Wailers, Stephen Marley, Morgan Heritage, The Meditations, Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, John Munson of Semisonic, Tech N9ne, Sevendust, Quiet Riot, Bret Michaels, and Warrant.
