Tribal Seeds

Tribal Seeds are an American reggae band from San Diego, California, US, offering a roots-orientated reggae sound infused with rocking vibes to create a style similar to the likes of SOJA and Rebelution.

Tribal Seeds was formed by two brothers, Steven Rene Jacobo (vocals, guitar) and Tony-Ray Jacobo (producer, keyboard, vocals) and joined by Carlos Verdugo (drums), Victor Navarro (bass), E.N Young (keyboards, vocals) and Ryan Gonzo (guitar, vocals). Since forming, they have gained many fans through their refreshing take on rock influenced reggae, focusing more on roots and rocksteady influences to inform their sound, looking back to artists like Black Uhuru, The Congos, Peter Tosh, and the Abyssinians.

The band released their self-titled debut album in 2008, named ‘Best Of’ in an iTunes list of Reggae releases that year. They also received a local award for ‘Best World Music’ at the San Diego Music Awards. Their second record, “Harvest” (2009) also was named ‘Best Of’ by iTunes, achieving chart success by reaching number five in the Billboard Reggae Charts.

After several successful tours, the band returned to the studio to record the EP, “Soundwaves” which went to number two on the Billboard Reggae Charts. The band has toured extensively throughout their career, performing across the United States as well as in Mexico and Aruba. They have supported artists including The Wailers, Collie Buddz, Gregory Issacs, Rebelution and a whole host of others.

Their eagerly awaited fourth album came out in 2014, titled “Representing,” debuting at number one on the Billboard Reggae Charts and number 114 on the Billboard 200. The album solidified their place in the world of contemporary reggae, as one of the top bands in the scene.
