Spiritual Rez Bio/Background:
There is nothing more mind-bending than diverse sounds and omni-present textures…the music that changes your mind and your soul. The Spiritual Rez six-piece reggae horn funk dance experience is an unabashed display of musical virtuosity. When paired with a deep, sub-sonic groove and powerful heart felt vocalization, crowds are left dancing and screaming for more. Over the past eight years, these six men have relentlessly toured the country to share their music and appreciation of the arts. Rooted in rock, reggae, and funk, their diversity exemplifies their love and desire to put on a live experience that will not only cut to your core, but also ignite the inner flame that exists in us all. A constant festival favorite, The Rez can shake a stage like a psychedelic dance earthquake. Evoking their personal power animals, they fearlessly forge into the musically unknown, creating a masterpiece every performance. It’s this power, this creative desire, that has fans traveling across the nation to experience this raw and intoxicating display of musical bliss.

Free Spiritual Rez MP3:

Album: The Nexus
FREE Song: Alone Again

Guitarist Van Gordon Martin’s thoughts on their song Alone Again:
As a song comes from a place that we all need at times; a place of solace, meditation, and self reliance; a place “where nothing can go wrong.” It was one of the first songs we ever played as a band and has been a crowd favorite since we started.
