"If Bob Marley were alive today, I have no doubt that Fourth Dimension would make his Top Five list of favorite reggae bands."
-Miami Herald

"Conjoin the fully orchestrated arrangements of the Wailers Band with Steel Pulse-style vocals (thought the accents aren't Kingston or Brixton) and you'll get an idea of the sound of this four-piece (at times augmented by live horns a la Burning Spear)."
Chuck Foster- The Beat Magazine.

Dubbed as "South Florida reggae legends" by the Miami Herald, Fourth Dimension features a likeable, buoyant live-band sound with catchy hooks, layered harmonies, electric guitar riffs and a bi-lingual Spanish – English edge. In the Southeast region of the USA they are known as a crucial driving force in the reggae movement. Currently performing over 250 shows a year.

They recently collaborated in "The Reggae Wave" compilation album with Inner Circle.

Also in recent past, 4-D supported acts such as Snoop Dogg, Matisyahu, Julian Marley, Fishbone, Steel Pulse, Eek-A-Mouse, Black Uhuru, played the Super Bowl XLIV official concert series and travelled to New Mexico to perform at the "Pow Wow", the biggest Native American gathering in the world, and at the Hard Rock Cafe in Albuquerque w/ Stephen Marley.

Fourth Dimension album Invazion was nominated for Best reggae album and Best reggae song x2 in the 2009 JPF Music Awards, the biggest independent music awards. The band was also featured in Promo Only Caribbean Series January 2009 alongside artists such as Collie Budz and Daddy Yankee. (Promo Only is the world's #1 provider provider of digital distribution of the hottest and upcoming artists to radio stations and major record labels.-The industry standard for major label distribution)

Fourth Dimension's Invazion was named in the Best of Reggae Series by Reggaetrain.com. Taxi, the world's leading A&R Company review of Invazion was " 9 out of 10".

This reggae powerhouse has performed at the world-acclaimed “Reggae Sunsplash”, toured internationally and shared the stage with artists such as Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys, UB40, Mos Def, James Brown, John Mayer and others.

On may 10 2008 they released their 15 track album Invazion for which they teamed up with Karl Pitterson, the legend who recorded and mixed Time Magazine’s “The Best Album of the 20th Century”, Bob Marley and The Wailer’s Exodus Album, and produced Steel Pulse’s first three albums. Immersed in Pitterson’s studio in South Miami Florida non-stop for over a 4 month period, the innovative pairing introduced some new and surprising elements into the band's established reggae sound. Pitterson has put his mark on other records of such artists as Mick Jagger, Peter Tosh, The Skatalites, Robert Palmer, Grace Jones and brought that same vibe and passion to Fourth Dimension’s new album, Invazion. The album features super-dynamic drummer Joe “Grind” Fagan and special guest Grammy-nominee drummer, Bradley Brown from Sizzla.

As rastafarian vocalist/bassist Jah Steve divulges, "In a sense we were trying to create a progressive reggae album while keeping the authentic reggae sound.” Steve has been involved in the reggae scene since an early age and has backed up Jamaican “Studio 1” greats such as Derrick Morgan. He names Wailer's bassist Aston "Familyman" and Eric Clapton as his musical role models. Guitarist and vocalist Strings is endorsed by two guitars companies Hutchins Guitars (UK guitar company endorses Dick Taylor/Rolling Stones, Oasis, Fat Boy Slim, The Kooks) and First Act Guitars. The lyrics on Invazion reflects themes such as the band’s assurance in that positivity and humanitarian beliefs are still alive. With lyrics on the title track that chat, “If we all could keep on giving the love that we have, lets reach a new land”. And in Muertos En Vida, one of the two spanish tracks on the album, classically trained pianist/keyboardist/vocalist Pierre Arnau asks, “What kind of seeds must we plant to see this world grow?”

Fourth Dimension's new drummer is the influential Jamaican drummer, Basil "Benbow" Creary; his extensive credits include but are not limited to: Lee "Scratch" Perry, Gregory Isaacs, UB40, Mutabaruka, Wailing Souls, Heptones, Augustus Pablo and Easy Star All-Stars.
