Strive Roots: The ultimate music therapy that soothes the soul, stimulates the mind, and rocks the body.
From the snowy peaks of the Rockies to the sunny beaches of San Diego to the crystal shores of South Lake Tahoe, Strive Roots has evolved into a hip-shaking, mind-expanding, inspirational musical project that is flourishing by packing concert halls to mountain saloons throughout the Western United States. After every Strive Roots show, amazed fans find themselves attempting to pin down their experience with words, but have only been able to come up with one core phrase to explain Strive Roots, “Roots Infused Power Groove”. What is Roots Infused Power Groove? It’s the funky beat swirling in your hips, it’s the message of awareness and change demanding to be heard, it’s original soul with modern beats, it’s your new favorite genre of music.
Powered by a mission to save the planet, Strive Roots’ conscious music melds the genres of reggae, hard rock, funk, and hip hop. Live shows are the platform for the band’s immense talent, creativity, and bold flavor. Music lovers looking for inspiration, enlightenment, awareness, or just a reason to dance can find it all within the realms of Strive Roots.
Strive Roots has headlined venues including the Derby, the Viper Room, Valle Nevado ski resort in Chili, South America and the South Park Music Tour in Colorado. Strive Roots has shared the stage with some of the musical world’s best including The Dooby Brothers, Buck’O’nine, De La Soul, Particle, Michael Franti and Spearhead, North Mississippi All Stars, Delta Nove, Thicker than Thieves, and The John Popper Project.
Strive Roots is literally on the tip of the world’s tongue after experiencing a plethora of publicity plugs around the globe. Thanks to their choice as snowboarder Hannah Teter’s Olympic gold medal soundtrack, Strive Roots has been mentioned on Good Morning America, The Dave Letterman Show, Jay Leno and The Jimmy Kimmel Show. Their track “Communicate” was launched into prime time after it gave Teter the motivation she needed to grab gold in the half-pipe competition of the 2006 Torino Olympic Winter Games.
Strive Roots’ newest album, The Harmonic Convergence, is in the works! Strive Roots takes pride in having self-produced their music through their own record label, Fourth Dimension Studios. For the Harmonic Convergence, Strive Roots has teamed up with multi-platinum producer Alan Sanderson (System of a Down, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, B.B. King and many others). The Harmonic Convergence exhibits the strides Strive Roots has taken to incorporate conscious action, diversity, and creativity into their music. What started as a raw example of artistic emotion and vigor has erupted into a professional, polished musical work of art.
