Sick and tired ALBUM RELEASE

ALBUM'S FINISHED - 10 years in the making feat. 3 Grammy Award winning producers/mixers, & Bob Marley's lead guitarist Junior Marvin

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.

*****SICK AND TIRED IS A MASH-UP OF REGGAE SKANK, ROCK RIFFS, A RAP BREAKDOWN, SHAMANIC CHANTING AND, OF COURSE ETHICAL LYRICS FROM JARVIS WHO, INCIDENTALLY, APPEARED IN CHANNEL 4’S ECO-INSPIRED REALITY SERIES DUMPED. IT BEATS HAVING A FAIR-TRADE LOGO STAMPED TO YOUR HAND.***** BIG ISSUE.

Who is lead singer Jarvis Smith?

‘Creative’ doesn’t begin to describe the many talents and qualities of one of the most dynamic and charismatic personalities we know. Lead singer for the rock reggae band ‘The Phoenix Rose,’ Jarvis’ magnetic and commanding presence opened the way to leverage his greatness in many ways. Jarvis chairs the Friends of the Earth Event Gala Committee and heads the People and Environment Achievement (PEA) Awards. And this year, he’ll host the LloydsTSB People and Environment Achievement Business (PEAB) Awards.

Jarvis is nothing short of environmentally and mystically conscious. ‘Green Living’ dominates both his personal and professional life. Heavily influenced by the world’s great spiritual leaders, Jarvis has created and marketed an array of leading earth-friendly media products and publications, bringing wide spread awareness to the planet.

Jarvis is someone who knows from experience. For 3 weeks on Channel 4' 'Dumped' programme he intentionally lived with a group of volunteers on a rubbish tip, surviving on other people’s waste. Recognizing that this was how many people on the planet actually live and survive, Jarvis was driven to make it his mission to bring this awareness to the public at large...and inspired him to dedicate his life to environmental change.
