Through The Roots
THROUGH THE ROOTS closed 2013 with "Take You There" 
being nominated for the Reggaeville 2013 Album of the Year, 
with fans voting into January when the winner was to be 
announced at Reggaeville.com. It was a prestigious honor for 
TTR to be on the nominees' list that included some of the biggest 
names in reggae. "Take You There" which was released on July 
30th, debuted at #3 on The iTunes reggae charts right behind 
Bob Marley, and Snoop Dogg. "Take You There" also debuted at 
#5 on The Billboard Reggae Charts. 
 
THROUGH THE ROOTS' uplifting music includes a tantalizing 
blend of reggae, rock, and pop mixed with a vast array of ear 
pleasing guitar, drums and keyboard/synth play to mesh with the 
band's catchy vocals, creating its unique sounds. TTR excels in 
live performances, allowing its young and older fans to truly 
experience the total musical package as the pumping crowd is 
wrapped into a high-energy, free-flowing show that leaves fans 
with a positive reaction. 
 
In 2011, THROUGH THE ROOTS' first CD, "Here To Stay," 
quickly rose on the iTunes reggae Top 200 chart to No. 2 in the 
first week and remained amongst the best selling CDs as more 
and more TTR fans were turned on by the clever vibes and 
soothing mixture of the group's music. The popular CD also 
garnered air time on the West Coast and in Hawaii, adding to a 
six-song EP that THROUGH THE ROOTS put out in 2008, with 
both remaining in iTunes' top 50 selling reggae CDs for the year. 
 
THROUGH THE ROOTS topped 2011 by being named The 
Pier's 2011 Newcomer of the Year. The online website covering

Tatanka & Sun-Dried Vibes
Tatanka & Sun-Dried VibesTATANKA

“Tatanka is a record that manages to pay homage to its roots, deliver a couple catchy singles, as well as define Tatanka’s s
ound as an out of the mold band that is pushing the reggae-rock genre to a new place.” -Tommy Dubs, The Pier

Tatanka encapsulates the heavy roots rumble of the Caribbean, while maintaining the pop sensibilities of the dance-oriented electronic sounds from the Britannica-American reggae scenes. These sounds are what fueled the groups newest album,'Tatanka'. Written over the span of a year and a half, Tatanka recorded their self-titled album at Imperial Sound in San Diego. Reggae rocker Ted Bowne from PASSAFIRE and roots magician The Maad T-Ray of Tribal Seeds feature on a counter-culture wake up call entitled “The Yard”. Jamaican sing-jay Triston Palmer is heard on a bouncy number labeled “Give Green". The tune pays homage to never giving up and believing in yourself. En Young of Tribal Seeds can also be heard throughout the album. The album debuted at #1 on the iTunes reggae charts and #4 on Billboard's reggae charts. The positive lyrics and heavy sounds garnered radio air-play all around the globe. 

Tatanka's Sounds In Technicolor EP has racked up over 20,000 downloads and has attributed to the flourishing fan base. This recognition has led to tours across the US and Canada with acts such as Tribal Seeds, Stick Figure, Lee Scratch Perry, Fortunate Youth, Easy Star Allstars, Passafire, and more. In conjunction with a heavy tour schedule, Tatanka has also played a multitude of festivals including California Roots, Powell-a-Palooza, Desert Rocks, Arise, and a plethora of others. 

Formed in Denver Colorado by a few college friends, Tatanka has been recognized as "Breakout Artist of the Year" (2014) by The Pier, High Times "Unsigned Band of the Month" (September 2011), and nominated by Westword magazine for "Colorado's Reggae/Jam Band of the Year" (2015). With 2015 providing a large amount of clout, Tatanka will be releasing a remix album of their self-titled record as well as several new singles.

Tatanka's infectious live show is the bridge between the band and the fans. It unifies the crowd with a progressing, pulsing, and positive perspective. Tatanka is always looking to further instill a global vision of unity with their pounding, dynamic sounds and peaceful, harmonious message.

“We all go help them, People come together no selfish.” -Reward Them,TATANKA
