    SHADOW, like the rest of your tracks, cuts cleanly and crisply through the genre clutter with a groove that slices directly to the heart with honest power. This is music with teeth, heart, soul and big brass balls.

Press

"Led by dreadlocked singer/songwriter Ernesto Browne, DV8 evolved out of his previous Bay Area band VISION. Ernesto fronts the band with a vibrant stage presence, finely phrased grainy vocals and a strong set of message songs, the band is one of the strongest local reggae outfits in recent history."

— Derk Richardson, San Francisco Bay Guardian
