Who are The Phoenix Rose? A band with hits and ethics. They created the world's 1st sustainable recording contract and have made a commitment to play on solar powered stages at festivals which have included Glastonbury, Isle of Wight, Bristol Veg Fest, Sunrise and many others. Will only wear ethical or organic clothing and are sponsored by brands like THTC and London Trousers. The music is Reggae/Rock with a hint of classical Indian vibes from the sublime voice of Rita Morar mixed with ancient tabla rhythms.
The band has signed the with the UK’s first and only green record company, Archangel Green, and the recording contract denotes guidelines about travel reduction and worst case, carbon-offsetting travel, green energy tariffs, and efficient CD production, and the use of enviro-friendly products for promo shoots and appearances. Jarvis’ talent as a songwriter and his musicianship are used as powerful vehicles for his ‘green’ message; The Phoenix Rose has performed at Glastonbury, Sunrise and the Bristol Vegan Fayre, and played the main stage at the UK’s Greenest Festival, Waveform.
Jarvis Smith wrote the new single, ‘Sick & Tired’ , a call to people who want an end to dictatorships and manipulation, which are founding causes for the state of our planet. Strong idea, but as Jarvis believes, music is the best way to spread powerful and determined messages in a peaceful manner. ‘Sick & Tired’ is a catalyst to make people consider their world, and hopefully engages them to realise their own capability in insisting change.
