The iFoundation are a band named and formed in tribute to the 'foundation reggae' of seminal
artists like Gregory Issacs and Denis Brown amongst others. In terms of membership, this
project is effectively a creative collaboration between Scotland's Reggae allstars; a unit that
always welcomes good performers and producers into the family, and whose music is produced and
performed to honour and revive the best in a long tradition of roots and culture.
As a live act, The iFoundation are almost the quintessential festival band; their mixture of
soulful and rhythmic musicality, positive attitude, pure stagecraft and sheer 'vibes' marking
them out as the perfect accompaniment to an uplifting but relaxed summertime outdoor gig.
The group includes Leanne Hood and Paula Weir on Vocals, Kyle Robertson on Vocals and Guitar, Andy Wood on
Bass, Alex Sakulin on keys and Hamish Hay on Lead Guitar.
The group were proud to be nominated for Best British Band at this years British Reggae Awards
The release of their first album with Krafted Riddim Records will be IF8 avaible on soundcloud and shortly on CD.
10 Tracks of sweet reggae music to enjoy the summer with.
The iFoundation produce authentic groove driven 'Lover's Rock' Reggae. Their sound bristles
with powerful bass driven harmonic melodies, defined 80's synth overtones and instinctively
performed brass melodies and they specialise in crowd-friendly interactive anthems to involve
their audiences in the music. The group have a track record of famous supports and headline
shows like the Nottinghill Carnival, The Wickerman Festival, The Red Sails Festival Ireland,
Sea Sessions Ireland, Eden Festival, Knockengorroch Festival, The Arches, O2 Academy, Ronnie
Scott's London and many other live events throughout the UK and beyond.
Lover's Rock is a style of reggae music noted for its romantic sound and content. While love
songs had been an important part of reggae since the late 1960s, the style was given a greater
focus and a name in London in the mid 1970s. A long history of great shows and media
appearances will help to make 'The iFoundation' one of the best loved and respected groups on
the UK festival circuit.
Working with the likes of Jackie Mittoo, Easy All Stars, Sly & Robbie and sharing stages with
icons such as Sugar Minot,Toots and The Maytals,Mighty Diamonds, The Heptones, Steel Pulse, etc
has helped them build a strong fan base.
