Southwest Florida is cultivating some killer Reggae-Rock music and Common Ground is no exception, celebrating the debut of their NEW Music Video for the song “Live It”. As a result, we have both the Video & Song up for FREE this week…
“Live It! is an example of a care-free song with happy vibes that draws you in immediately with it’s catchy hooks, and infectious rhythms. The song itself merely portrays that no matter how sure you are about anything in life, “You never really know for sure”; Anything can happen.”
“This track, Along with our “Cultivate EP” was recorded in Orlando, Fl by Jason Aaron Adams. The official video was shot in our hometown Fort Myers, Fl by Fine Light Entertainment out of Los Angeles, CA. We are currently touring Florida in support of our much-anticipated full-length CD, Coming Summer 2012.”

Common Ground Bio/Background:
Hailing from the beautiful shores of Southwest Florida, Common Ground has banded together through the bonds of hard work, dedication and positive vibrations. The group is making their footprint on those same shores with a “sky’s the limit” mindset.
Common Ground truly has a multi-faceted approach to making reggae music. The band members each have a very broad range of musical tastes and backgrounds. With all members having so many different influences, the group harnesses various forms of Funk, Surf, Soul, Hip-Hop, Ska, Psychedelic, Blues, Jazz, Jam, and especially that sweet Reggae music to cultivate a purely original and organic form of music. Their music pays homage to the roots of reggae music, while also exploring the depths of musical composition and arrangement. Targeting people of all ages and walks of life, Common Ground’s music is easily accessible to anyone. The music is familiar in its bouncing, driving rhythms and catchy hooks, yet has a flavor so fresh and infectious that it will leave you wanting more.

Already sharing the stage with National touring bands such as Passafire, The Supervillains, Shwayze, Tribal Seeds, Mike Pinto, The Spam All-stars, and The Echo Movement – nothing stands in their way of attaining success.
