The world of reggae and Caribbean-inspired music is vast and ever-progressing, Soul Rebel Project is a prime example of this genre’s influential reach. The Boston-based reggae rock band is putting their unique stamp on the genre with their pulsating drum and bass rhythms and heavily-decorated melodies. They teamed up with New England’s top musicians to deliver their new album Higher Place, which is distributed through VP Associated Label Group (VPAL). The digital-only release debuted at #8 on U.S. Billboard Reggae Album Chart on July 20th and their physical CD release will hit stores on September 23rd.
With his soulful vocals and energetic stage performances, the band is led by singer-songwriter and rhythm guitarist Mike Francis Jr. He is joined by Jay Harris (lead guitar), Adam Saylor (bass) and Geoff Pilkington (drums). The group has toured steadily throughout the summer with dates throughout the fall.
