The Late Ones
Conscious reggae/hip-hop hybrid band The Late Ones are known for using their music as a tool to speak out against oppression and injustice by bringing a youthful and powerful presence to the reggae community, along with a unique spin by bringing in old school hip hop to the mix. Think of the Pharcyde, Souls of Mischief, and A Tribe Called Quest collaborating with The Mighty Diamonds or Culture, and you get a sense of what this band’s sound is like.
California grown, Island inspired, The Late Ones have been bringing their take on reggae music to the stage for quite some time. Comprised of the Avei brothers and their close friend Josh Brunson, their harmonies show through their chemistry onstage and their conscious and edgy lyrics in the studio.
Rising conscious reggae/hip-hop band The Late Ones are set to release their upcoming single “Tell Me Not” on Friday, May 24th via tastemaker label Easy Star Records. The band has been bubbling on the US reggae scene for a few years, while they put together an album’s worth of material to release. Working closely with the Easy Star Records team over the past year, the group is finally ready to begin releasing material, starting with this single. A full album is due later this year.
