Lovd Ones – “Slow Down”
“Slow Down” Background:
On July 15th, Lovd Ones will release their new album Thicker Than Blood. It includes 15 total tracks and the aforementioned guest appearances. One of them includes Leilani Wolfgramm on their soulful acoustic jam “Sail Away”, which caught the ear of her producer E.N Young. Front man Benjah met E.N Young and Gonzo at the Annual 2014 Cali Roots Festival, and it naturally inspired an amazing collaboration.
Here’s what Benjah has to say about this weeks FREE song: “Slow Down” is the type of song that has everybody with their hands in the air as they reminisce about their past. Everybody has fallen in love too fast at one time or another and this song encourages us to slow down in that pursuit. You can always move too fast and be blinded by the idea of love, but you can never move to slow! Lovd Ones is honored to team up with the Cali reggae veteran, Gonzo (of Tribal Seeds), to make people feel this song from coast to coast.”
Aside from “Slow Down” with Gonzo on this weeks feature, Lovd Ones & in effort to expose global issues and chant for change, the song “My Lord” features Sizzla. The song speaks of unity, proclaiming that love will crumble walls of hate and confusion. “Rio De Paz” features Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D. as the song sheds light on the corruption and bloodshed in Brazilian ghettos.

Lovd Ones Background:
Lovd Ones are a progressive Roots Reggae band hailing from Orlando, Florida, USA. Created and fronted by Benjah (Dove® Award-winning, GRAMMY®-nominated Songwriter, Producer, and Engineer). Lovd Ones is a collaborative project that features many different artists that are united in recognizing that truth prevails over darkness and love can unify all.
In 2011, Benjah released Lovd Ones debut album alongside his longtime cohort Dillavou entitled Introducing…Lov’d Ones. The album featured a reggae, world, hip hop mash up sound and hit #2 on the iTunes Reggae Charts. The debut caught the attention of many and were invited to perform at the Bob Marley Nine Mile Festival in Miami, Florida alongside artists such as Stephen, Damian, and Kymani Marley, Inner Circle, Slightly Stoopid and many others.
They have since directed their sound towards a more conscious reggae style, fusing an authentic reggae sound with a distinct American vibe. In early 2014 they released a free EP titled Mountains & Valleys that you can grab inside our MP3 Massive by clicking HERE! The release speaks of life’s ups and downs, trials and victories.
