His latest release, Shwayze Summer, captures the essence of what he's all about and the lead single, "Love Is Overrated," has over two million streams and has already become a fan favorite.
With an MTV reality show, four full-length albums, and countless tours under his belt… Shwayze is on a mission to make the whole world Feel Good!
In working toward his goal, Shwayze has put Feel Good Entertainment, the independent label he launched in 2010, into full force. This will not only allow him the freedom to make the music that he wants but it will also offer up-and-coming artists a chance to realize their dreams as well.
The future for Shwayze is as bright as the summer sun in California. You won't want to miss out on what's to come. It's going to be Shway!
Genre aside, Tribal Theory is the hottest musical act out of San Diego in quite some time. This talented and impressive group's music is polished and fresh. Tribal Theory takes their Pacific Islander roots and fuses it with reggae, ska, and a little bit of rock to make a sound that's uniquely their own!
of ragga combined with never-ending drum grooves, acoustic guitar, whole- some keys, soothing vocal harmonies and rocking bass riffs.
Dirty Rice is comprised of a group of local friends and a mix of family - Pika Maiava (drums), Mataio Valoaga (bass), Charleen Morla (keyboards), Mau Valoaga (Guitar) and combining the heavenly blends on the mics are vocals – Shirley Moore, Henry Otineru and Nasau Galeai.
Dirty Rice formed in March of 2010 initially to play at a “one time only gig” for a birthday party of two of their band members. With such positive response from the crowd of family and friends, they decided to continue rehearsing and began performing at local venues throughout the 805.
Dirty Rice was soon capturing the crowds with their unique and intriguing sound by performing known reggae covers to their very own “feel good” originals.
Since then, Dirty Rice has had the honor and privilege of backing headline acts including reggae legends from Ziggy Marley, the Wailers, Pato Banton
and Don Carlos to more current acts such as Lion, Rey Fresco, Jboog, Iration, Katcha re, Tribal Theory, Expanders, Reel Big Fish, Shaggy, Sublime w/ Rome among other groups.
On March 2013, Dirty Rice realeased their rst self-titled album and played to a sold out crowd of 2,000 at the Majestic Ventura Theater for their album release. Dirty Rice is currently released their latest 4-track EP “Heart of a Lion” in the Fall of 2016.
Dirty Rice’s island vibe style is great for all occasions and any crowd that likes to layback, chill, or party and groove on the dance oor.
Their versatile blend, uplifting lyrics and sincere energy moves the crowd
at any venue whether it be for intimate crowds at private parties, festivals, bene t shows to audiences at the House of Blues (Anaheim), The Mint (Los Angeles), SoHo (Santa Barbara), The Libbey Bowl (Ojai), The Canyon Club (Agoura Hills), SLO Brewery (San Luis Obispo), Winstons and House of Blues (San Diego) to local spots in Ventura – Bombay’s, The Pierpont Inn, Watermark on Main, Discovery Ventura, Copper Blues and the place where it all began, Sam’s Saloon in South Oxnard.
