See-I is hot on the heels of their critically acclaimed self-titled album released in June by the tastemakers at Fort Knox Recordings. The album is a collection of 13 tracks, where the duo blends their unique brand of reggae with other eclectic influences, including funk, dub, and rock, resulting in an epic showcase of energy, sound and talent.
The story begins with two brothers, Arthur “Rootz” Steele and Archie “Zeebo” Steele, who found their way from college in North Carolina via the Caribbean only to end up in Washington, DC. It was in the cultural melting pot of the Nation’s capital that they developed their creative and musical talents. In the late 1980s, the brothers Steele would launch the project that has defined their lives: See-I. They quickly became a fixture of DC’s burgeoning Reggae scene crossing paths with other local musicians like Thievery Corporation and Fort Knox Five with whom they frequently collaborated. Throughout the ‘90s and into the coming millennium they would become widely known for recording, performing and touring the world with Thievery Corporation.
After years of touring, guest appearances, and tracks, the duo has finally crated a debut album definitely worth the wait. Produced by Zeebo, Enea Diotaiuti and Rob Myers, See-I marks the debut of the Steele brothers on their own and now they’re bringing it out on tour. The duo will also be celebrating the release of their See-I Remixed EP, out on November 2nd on Fort Knox Recordings.
