Kash’d Out’s “Baby Don’t Go” Background:
During the tracking of their new album The Hookup, due out May 26th via Law Records, front-man Greg Shields was also co-writing ‘Girls‘ — Ballyhoo!’s new record. Shortly after those sessions, Greg traveled with Ballyhoo! on the Vans Warped Tour 2016 where he was introduced to Hawaii’s own reggae-rock legends, Pepper. Since Greg had also co-written Ballyhoo!’s Daydreams, which was released through Pepper’s label, LAW Records, Greg patiently waited for the right moment to show Pepper Kash’d Out’s new material.
This will be the first album of 2017 to be released under Law Records, following a 2016 year that saw the label releasing Pepper’s Ohana” in April, the Darenots’ ‘The Truth Is Now’ in May and Katastro’s “Strange Nights” in October to round a great return for the label.
With Kash’d Out’s new release, The Hookup, fans are going to hear 14 brand new songs, with a guest feature by Howi Spangler of Ballyhoo!. The songs are upbeat, poppy, funny, with good melody and rhythm, under an enjoyable umbrella of constant reggae that doesn’t feel in anyway repetitive — It’s actually a great start-to-finish listen. After receiving an advance copy of the album, I genuinely feel that this will be a record that will give you a good and lasting impression.
The albums first single, “Yes I,” has been released and you can find the music video for that song below.
My personal favorite of the album is a song called “Baby Don’t Go.” I love the tone of the track and how they occasionally drop the beat out of the hook before bringing it back to drive home the spirit of the song’s sentiment in pleading to his love not to go.
Here’s what Greg told The Pier when we asked about the song: “Everyone has someone they love, and that’s a powerful feeling which is subject to change. Sometimes in life we’re forced to battle the decision to let our someone go, or to keep them around. When the smoke clears, its easy to feel you’ve made the wrong decision, but is it too late? ‘Baby Don’t Go’ touches on all of that, and I know someone out there can relate.”

Kash’d Out Background:
Straight out of Orlando, FL, Kash’d Out was formed by guitarist Jackson Hauserman and producers Greg Shields & Josh Saldate of Sound Lounge Studios. Sound Lounge was a recording home to bands such as Ballyhoo!, Tribal Seeds and many more. Armed with knowledge, experience and true passion for what they do, Kash’d Out’s focus is to put out positive energy through catchy tunes, to help the continued growth of our flourishing reggae/rock community.
Once their self-titled debut EP was complete, Kash’d Out recruited Joey Brohawn on Bass, Marshall Hearne on drums and Nick Gudzan on keys. Now, with the line-up complete, the band hit the studio to record tracks for their second record.
Fast forward to 2017, Kash’d Out is fresh off of a nationwide tour with Pepper/Less Than Jake followed by another with Pacific Dub, and their new full-length album aptly named The Hookup drops May 26th on LAW Records.
