"...Eugene-based Sol Seed makes the most of the accessibility and flexibility of the Jamaican tradition. Using reggae as its backbone, the band infuses its music with elements of electronica, jazz, Spanish blues, hip hop, dub and soulful psychedelic. It’s a Northwest style that’s drawing plenty of attention."
“...Sol Seed has a heavy local presence. With hypnotic beats and graceful rhythms, Eugene is lucky to call itself home to such a unique band.”
“[Sol Seed] is gaining traction — not just in the reggae and jam band scenes — by packing shows and making people smile.”
"From Oregon, Sol Seed serves up psychedelic reggae fused with hip-hop, rock, Latin, jazz, folk and funk. The goal: music as the message of unconditional love, universal acceptance and a way to reach across social, spiritual and cultural boundaries. Plus, you can dance to it! The sextet has mastered the art of mixing original songs with those of Bob Marley and Michael Franti, for example, often without breaks"
“Sol Seed is built for the stage. This collection of natural performers is known to impress and engage its listeners. Ever go early to a show and run into an opening act that’s so good it makes you wonder why they aren’t headlining? That’s Sol Seed. And it will only be a matter of time until these guys are gigging the festival circuit and receiving the recognition as Eugene’s hottest new reggae act.”
“As a new reggae band in a saturated industry, Sol Seed draws it's individuality from their heavy undertone of rock, Latin rhythm and psychedelic jam styles. This band has some serious sway.”
“Oregon's Sol Seed is a reggae-laced party roll filled with excitement and flavor. The band's six members personify a melding of funk, ska, and jazz influences to create a unique and fresh approach to traditional island sounds. Armed with a recently acquired shuttle bus, the band's touring schedule looks to make a dramatic increase as their fanbase demand swells. Their grooves and foot-stomping rhythms continue to collide on various stages throughout the West Coast and their internal dedication and face-value discipline to the music is what sets these guys apart from the pack.”
"We got a chance to catch these guys in Portland at the Tonic Lounge a while back now, super dope show"
"Sol Seed opened the night and hit the stage like the head liner! Great vibe and drive!"
