Indubious
The story of Indubious is not for the faint of heart. Like a Phoenix rising from the flames, Indubious was forged in the fires of pain and destruction. It is through overcoming adversity that Evton and Skip, both brothers and band mates, have emerged as a powerful forces for change, and voices for the future of conscious music.

Having been born with Cystic Fibrosis, the Indubious brothers were given a grim diagnoses at birth with a life expectancy of 18 years. Now 32 and 35, respectively, the brothers have persevered. Evton recently received a double lung transplant in 2011 resulting in a full recovery. Convinced by doctors of their impending death from an early age, their only choice has always been mind over matter. Time has proven that their unbending positive outlook combined with an inspiring message of love and hope, has not only helped them overcome personal hardship, but catapulted their music onto the world stage with an unstoppable momentum.

Armed with impressive instrumental skill, powerful tharmonies, and an electrifying stage presence, Indubious is destined to change the face of music. Leaving audiences stunned and amazed, they recruit fans from all walks of life whilst shattering any preconceived notions of genre and style. At the forefront of a musical revolution spreading out from their home of Ashland, Oregon, Indubious and their loyal fans, affectionately called "Indubians", have reached worldwide with international tours, numerous major festival plays, 3 full length album releases, and a steadily rising reputation as the originators and ambassadors of the Rootstronica genre (a high energy blend of Reggae, Rock and EDM).

Their most recent release, Wake The Lion, has achieved great success and reach with rankings and features throughout Beatport, iTunes, Amazon, and numerous media outlets. Produced by the composer/producer Gaudi, Wake The Lion is a textural journey into the world of Rootstronica. Lush synths, deep bass and visionary lyricism encompass the entire album, blurring the lines between roots, dub, dancehall and heavy dance psychedelia. Indubious' unique sound has been brought vibrantly to the surface by Gaudi's innovative approach to electronic music. Vibrationally rich and musically brilliant, Wake The Lion champions a revolutionary sound, pushing the boundaries of reggae music.

Indubious has performed at many prestigious festivals including; Wakarusa, Gathering Of The Vibes, Reggae On The River, Sulafest in India, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, California Roots Festival, Beloved, Britt Festivals, The Oregon Country Faire, Reggae In The Hills, Northwest World Reggae Festival, Earthdance, Gaia Festival, plus club and concert hall tours from Seattle to San Diego. They have shared the stage and toured with many influential names such as Black Uhuru, Matisyahu, Blondie, Michael Franti, Stephen Marley, Rebelution, Junior Reid, and Pato Banton to name a few.

The band and their legion of fans have adopted the motto of “Live Indubiously”, meaning living life without doubt and fear and faith in the fact that we are all here for a reason. “Our mission is to reconnect the people of the world with rightful living, rightful speaking through teaching the everlasting blessings of service to humanity, of service to our higher purpose and higher selves. Our gift is music – and through our music we wish to speak the truth in an effort to inspire others to do the same, to raise the positive vibrations of our planet and help others express the true loving nature within us all.”

This Oregon based band got their start in early 2010 when songwriters Michael Lennon and Michael Sorensen joined hands with fellow friend and musician Benny Pezzano through a Southern Oregon open mic. An undeniable synergy was all but tangible as their creative forces coalesced, and they immediately began to grow a diverse collection of original music. They soon joined with Native American Award winning guitarist, Kenny Sequoia Lewis, and in October 2010, transplanted to Eugene to pursue life and music, where soon after they linked up with MC, Didgeridoo player and percussionist Sky Guasco. With 5 members, each member boasting very different influences and skill sets, Sol Seeds depth and volume of sound increased exponentially. With day-jobs being an ancient memory, the close-knit members of Sol Seed have fully embraced the band that has created much more- A movement, a lifestyle. With an infectious enthusiasm for life and an unequivocal knack to communicate its beauty, the group shares their message of perspectivism and unconditional love through uplifting music rooted in the soul. Sol Seed has certainly dug their roots. Coming to a city near you!
