Fortunate Youth Bio/Background:
Fortunate Youth is a collaboration of South Bay reggae stand-outs. Rising from various bands, they’ve created a phenomenal 7-piece masterpiece bringing more fire to the stage than ever before. Combining rootsy vibes and unique bass lines united with multiple harmonies, boisterous guitar solos, and heavy keys separates Fortunate Youth from every other mainstream reggae band. With their high energy approach and positive stage presence they provide an unforgettable show to every music fan. Fortunate Youth’s objective is to ensure a performance that leaves you feeling euphoric.
In 2011 they supported Tribal Seeds on their nationwide Tribal Youth Tour to spread their conscious music to the nation. They have hit the masses promoting only their 5-song EP, Up-Lifted EP, and will be releasing their full-length album in Summer 2011. Fortunate Youth will also be touring very heavily through 2011 including a run with The Green, from Hawaii, in April.
They have had the honor to share the stage with bands such as Groundation, Toots & The Maytals, The Abyssinians, The Wailers, Katchafire, Tribal Seeds, Dirty Heads Natural Vibrations, and Sashamon.
