The album has been getting a great response around the world and has been hitting the radio airwaves from Hawaii to Jamaica to the UK and Africa, and was voted one of the top 50 albums of 2017 by major reggae website Zona Reggae. Thier stage show is dynamic and keeps the crowd moving to the "sweet reggae music".
Also performing on the bill will be roots reggae singer from Guyana Arkaingelle. Bringing a heavy roots vibration and a mystical sound, Arkaingelle will be supporting the release of his new album "Tru Di Fyah". Arkaingelle's second album, released by the Zion High productions label has steadily climbed its way into the top 20 on popular website Reggae Vibes, and has been receiving positive feedback from the reggae community worldwide.

This full line-up also features rising reggae/pop singer from Portland Zahira. Zahira has been on the scene since 2009, and has released music with reggae greats such as Yami Bolo, and performed with Luciano.

Zahira also has a brand new single and video released titled "Stand Strong" with an uplifting animated video gaining her international attention.
Southern Oregon hip-hop & reggae artist Mista Chief will also be performing on the bill. As a Native American born to a Rastafarian mother, Chief had his early struggles as a hip-hop youth rebelling against her ways. Eventually, his own adult growth & venture into fatherhood gave way to his positive roots, allowing him to apply humble vibes and infuse a mix of dancehall reggae, with positive hip hop and appreciation of Native American culture into his music. MistaChief Chanta walks proud through his journeys in life spreading music that people can vibe to and connect with; he likes to think of himself as a bridge between cultures, a voice of the people and a link between many worlds.
Rising Buffalo Tribe will be bringing their original roots reggae to the stage, and will also be backing a Mista Chief and Zahira for a night of love and unity at the Wellsprings.
