"HIGH ENERGY REGGAE-ROCK OUT OF CINCINNATI"
Rockstead would like to challenge you to Rise, to Wake Up and Live, and be the change that you want to see in the world.
Cincinnati, Ohio’s Rockstead is living proof that spreading good vibes and positivity, while also having a hellacious work ethic, will get you to where you want to be in life, both physically and spiritually. After a breakout 2015 that included multiple music festivals and concerts at venues across Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois, - and having already completed two albums in that time span - Rockstead shows no signs of slowing their mission of bringing people together through music. Using this message, Rockstead combines a unique mix of reggae, rock, and punk derived from multitude of influences ranging from 311 to Sublime all the way to The Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Foo Fighters.
By aligning their unwavering dedication to the do-it-yourself work ethic with a signature sound, singer/guitarist Jake Burns, bassist Victor Falco, lead guitar Tanner Briscoe and drummer John Albertson, are hoping to define the landscape of today’s reggae-rock music scene. Courtney Phenicie of CincyMusic.com out of Cincinnati, Ohio had this to say about Rockstead’s freshly released EP Rise, “The title track, “Rise” is a powerful reggae rock song that encapsulates the listener with the positive air to be able to rise above what is holding you back. To break the chains of whatever is oppressing you and rise to your highest, most enlightened state in order to make changes for yourself, the people around you, and hopefully the world.”
