Elevate the Arts Presents - Railtown Sound System - Friday June 2

November 4, 2014

Railtown Sounds System - June 2

The foundation of their sound is deeply rooted in reggae music; and ROOTS REGGAE is what they play…with heavy infusions of dub and touches of funk, rock and modern Jamaican influences.  They create an inclusive live show where audience interaction and engagement is the cornerstone.  The feel and delivery invoke the rich textures of the Pacific Northwest; adventurous, exciting, exhilarating and organic.  Socially conscious lyrics and crowd engagement flow through the melodies of Scott Candiah backed by the soothing background harmonies of Rachel Strobl. Reg Wilford (drums) and Paul Ryan (bass) lay down a solid rhythm foundation while Matt Doctor (guitar), Brian Battaile (keys) and Greg Kelly (keys) layer on the lead lines, skanking, bubble and dub delays from the 1970’s space echo to round out the traditional, organic, analog roots sound.
