about the performers...
The word synergy means: Forces coming together to be greater in magnitude than the sum of their separate parts. We, the band SYNRGY, try to take this definition into the realm of the music we create, and our relationship with our audience.
We formed in Flagstaff Arizona in Spring of 2007. After becoming one of the most locally recognized bands in the area, we decided to spread our wings into the bigger skies to the West. We relocated to Humboldt County California in Summer of 2008, to embrace the culture that only Northern California had to offer.
In early 2010, we released our first studio album "Live in Love". Live in Love has 11 original SYNRGY tracks including hits such as: Breaking All The Rules, Good Dog Down, Sincerely Guilty and Tell Me Why.
In spring of 2010, SYNRGY's Lead Singer, Brian Zach, released an 18 track acoustic album called "Dream On." Dream On includes songs such as Hypocracy, Bombs Away, Blow Those Clouds Away, and Back To Where I Came.
Live in Love and Dream On are both available for sale on Itunes. Since the albums release, we have been touring aggressively through out the Western United States, enjoying the wonderful friends and family that music has provided.
With a backbone of Reggae, limbs and organs of Funk, Rock, Ska, and Rock-Steady, SYNRGY is a high energy treat for any live music lover. We demand movement from our audiences, which makes our shows an experience few forget. The conscious messages entwined in the songs aspire to inspire the minds of all who can perceive them. With your help, Synrgy is stronger. Join in with SYNRGY.
“Love will grow wherever you shine the light. So shine, we choose to shine. Because we are the strong, We Live in Love.” –(Live in Love lyrics)
The Rising Buffalo Tribe <>
Out of the roots reggae rebels and players of the 21st century comes forward the exciting new roots reggae group The Rising Buffalo Tribe (est. in 2009). On a mission to bring the authentic roots sound that spearheads up to Zion itself to come back down and awake the listener with the conscious voice of Jah Almighty through the spirit of singer Johnathan Velasquez (Chief Vigs) chanting truth and rights with conviction.
Gathering much inspiration and study from contemporary masters Kevin Kinsella, Groundation, Cultura Profetica, & Solomon Jabby, RBT is set to bring the real roots tradition to the Oregon masses.
Oregons Dreadly Roots Reggae. Bringing that dread yet sweet as honey melodic sound of real roots reggae music. Unto the ears of the wise and foolish in these times. Taking this sound to new heights. Grace & Blessings Abba ~Selah.
Ras Elijah Roots' Roots Train Podcast <>
Roots Train Productions Podcast was originally a hobby project undertaken by DJ Elijah Fari in 2009 after taking a life changing trip to Jamaica to see where this music all began. Elijah had received plenty of inspiration from local DJs like Ras Danny (Higher Reasoning Reggae Time), YT (Small Axe Sound International), Cansaman (Trinity Soundz), Ital Vibes, and Short Change (Reggae Revelations).....as well as other selectors from across the globe like DJ Dub Cowboy, Red Rasta, Jahman HiFi, and many more from the island of Jamaica before attempting to move forward with playing music for the masses. The running undercurrent of all the selections played on the podcast and in live shows is ROOTS and CULTURE.....with a heavy emphasis on educating the youth and respecting each other as humans.
For now, the Roots Train is only being produced live for gigs and special events, but the podcast will return in the future for those who have already subscribed. BLESSED LOVE!
