During their first year together, the band put out a seven song EP titled, Lay Your Guns Down. After receiving great recognition in 2013 for their debut album, Moving Forward, Arise Roots released their sophomore full-length, Love and War, nearly a year later. Produced by E.N Young (Tribal Seeds) at Imperial Sound Recording Studio, the album reached #3 on the iTunes Reggae charts and was followed up with countless shows performed along the west coast.
2015 proved to be a breakout year for Arise Roots as they embarked on two nationwide tours beginning in the springtime with New Kingston on the Kingston City Tour and making their debut on the east coast during the Summer Smokeout Tour with Tribal Seeds and The Expanders. Throughout it all, the band shined in the western region of the festival circuit making appearances at the California Roots Music and Arts Festival, Dry Diggings, Summer Meltdown, Uplift Winter Sessions, Reggae On The Mountain and the 16th annual Victoria Ska and Reggae Festival held in British Columbia, Canada.
With Montoya on drums, Rudy Covarrubias towering on bass, and Todd Johnson adding his trademark mix of keys and harmonies, the band had secured a dynamic rhythm section. Lead vocalist, Karim Israel, was then added to the group, providing his raw, soulful flow to complement his powerful lyrics. Soon after, Robert Sotelo, was added on lead guitar, providing his signature solos found throughout the band’s catalog. Rhythm guitarist, Chris Brennan, completes the band’s three-part harmonies and his energetic approach puts the final touch on Arise Roots’ often talked about stage presence.
Throughout their time together, Arise Roots has shared the stage with an impressive list of artists ranging from reggae legends such as The Wailers, Barrington Levy, Don Carlos, Wailing Souls, The Mighty Diamonds and more, as well as top-notch acts leading the new era of American reggae like Rebelution, Iration, Slightly Stoopid and Tribal Seeds. The band has also had the opportunity to play alongside hip hop greats such as Public Enemy, The Roots and Cypress Hill. Most recently, Arise Roots has kept the momentum going into 2016 as they make their rounds performing in the Southern California area before hitting the road once again and sharing their sound with new audiences.
