IrieFuse is a collection of long-time friends and fresh talent homegrown in the hills of Marin County, California. Originally formed as Counter Culture in 2011, they hit the scene hard with a flood of live shows and numerous festival appearances refusing to let their music go unheard. IrieFuse's rock pace and vivacious sentiments cross pollinate into a strongly motivated narration of life lived in the active now.
Performing as IrieFuse since early 2013, they have successfully toured the US West Coast, winning over the hearts of promoters and new fans at every stop. Their aggressive performance schedule and alluring energy has kept them at the number 1 spot on the local reggae charts. They have directly supported artists such as The English Beat, Richie Spice, Junior Kelly, Anthony B, Junior Ried, Natural Black, Prestige, Mystic Roots, and are currently the backing band for a 3x award-winning Belizian reggae artist, Ras Indio.
The grooves of IrieFuse are influenced by bands such as Sublime, Rebelution, Iration, Tribal Seeds, Fortunate Youth and of course, the reggae legends Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and more. Their debut EP, Sun is Rising, released July 26, 2013 and is available now on all major online music retailers. They are currently recording their freshman full-length album, Give & Get Back, and are excited for its release in the Spring of 2014.

Who are we celebrating?
Nesta Robert Marley OM (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981) was a Jamaican singer-songwriter who achieved international fame through a series of crossover reggaealbums. Starting out in 1963 with the group the Wailers, he forged a distinctive songwriting and vocal style that would later resonate with audiences worldwide. The Wailers would go on to release some of the earliest reggae records with producer Lee Scratch Perry. After the Wailers disbanded in 1974, Marley pursued a solo career which culminated in the release of the album Exodus in 1977 which established his worldwide reputation. He was a committed Rastafarian who infused his music with a profound sense of spirituality.
