Scholars Word reggae/dub
-Homegrown reggae from the heart!
Scholars Word takes everything good about reggae and weave it together in a new way, staying true to the roots of the music without sounding cliché or imitative. Their steady, dub pumping bass lines and energetic rhythms combine with a well-proportioned mix of guitar melodies, saxophone jams, and upbeat keyboard effects to produce a completely genuine and electrifying reggae sound. Pair that with lead singer Bryce Creighton’s clear, soothing voice, which captivates on tracks like “Good Feelin” and Searchin,” and you’ve got yourself an band that sounds remarkable from start to finish. And, as if all that weren’t enough, the lyrics of each song provide enlightened social commentary and life lessons that will make you think about the kind of positive impact you can make on the people around you.
