IrieFuse is a collection of long-time friends and fresh talent homegrown in the hills of Marin County, California. Originally formed as Counter Culture in 2011, they hit the scene hard with a flood of live shows and numerous festival appearances - refusing to let their music go unheard.
Performing as IrieFuse since early 2013, they have successfully toured the US West Coast, winning over the hearts of promoters and new fans at every stop. Their aggressive performance schedule and alluring energy has kept them at #1 spot on the local reggae charts. They have directly supported artists such as Alborosie, The English Beat, Richie Spice, Junior Kelly, Anthony B, Junior Ried and Fortunate Youth. They are also currently the US backing band for 3x award-winning Belizian reggae artist, Ras Indio.
The grooves of IrieFuse are influenced by bands such as Sublime, Rebelution, Iration, Tribal Seeds, Fortunate Youth and of course, the reggae legends Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and more. Their rock pace and vivacious sentiments cross pollinate into a strongly motivated narration of life lived in the active now.
Their debut EP, Sun is Rising, released July 26, 2013 and is available now on all major online music retailers. They are currently recording their freshman full-length album, "Give & Get Back", and are excited for its release in the Spring of 2014 and are honored to participate in the 5th Annual California Roots Festival in May 2014.
