This September, be on the lookout for the Roots Musician Records Showcase Tour 2014! Presented by Rude Entertainment Productions, this southwest run consists of three separate artists under the same record label all being backed by one band.
This means fans in Southern California and surrounding areas will have a chance to catch an exclusive show featuring solo sets by E.N Young and Gonzo of Tribal Seeds along with rising female singer/songwriter, Leilani Wolfgramm. In addition, roots-reggae specialists and Gonzo’s official backing band, Beyond I Sight, will be providing live music throughout all three artists’ sets.
Each artist on the tour is currently riding the wave of a highly successful summer. Leilani Wolfgramm recently released her debut album, Rebel, in late July. The 10-track album features a song with Gonzo in which they recorded a music video for that you can watch in the links below.
In early June, Gonzo dropped his sophomore album, RED, and has spent the last few months loosely touring with Beyond I Sight when he’s not on the road with Tribal Seeds. In addition to both albums mentioned above, E.N Young has also worked on many other projects out of his own Imperial Sound Recording Studio with bands such as Arise Roots, True Press, Inna Vision, Thrive, Tatanka, Clear Conscience and most recently, Mystic Roots and Revival.
As Tribal Seeds’ Representing Summer Tour comes to an end on September 6th, E.N Young, Gonzo, and Beyond I Sight’s bassist turned Tribal Seeds’ sound technician, Alex Gammil, will take a week off before hitting the road again.
Just before heading on the Roots Musician Records Tour Showcase Tour, Gonzo & E.N Young will join Tribal Seeds as they celebrate lead singer Steven Jacobo’s birthday at The Observatory in Santa Ana, California, with special guests The Expanders, True Press and Mystic Roots. The official tour starts the next day and will include one stop in Arizona while the rest of the showcasing will take place in southern and central California.
Just a few weeks after the mini solo tour concludes, E.N Young and Gonzo will join up once again with Tribal Seeds for their Representing Fall Tour that includes support from Ballyhoo! and solo sets from Gonzo backed by Beyond I Sight.
