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
