Biography

Want a taste of a new generation of music? Try Soul Majestic’s carefully crafted recipe that incorporates the talents of multiple vocalists, both male and female, blends in a youthful Jamaican-style edge with conscious lyrics, and adds a dash of laid-back California surf vibe and earth awareness. Pepper in an unrefined activist message with organic, highly danceable music, and finish up with an aroma of soulful and sultry musings on love, and you’ve got a hearty helping of Soul Majestic. Soul Majestic’s musical recipe is not one whipped up by corporate interests for mass production of a cheap product to force feed the population, but one handed down from ancestors and elders, and developed through the process of sharing.

This particular version emerged when three talented young musicians, Eric Iverson, David Lyons and Brian Jarvis connected in the fertile ground nestled between California’s coast and Santa Barbara’s majestic mountain range. From seaside drum circles to the eventual formation of a popular local psychedelic-folk-rock-reggae band called Lighting Bug Johnson, the three bonded and the roots of Soul Majestic took hold. In 1999, what would become Soul Majestic began to take shape.

With Eric-I on vocals (and initially drums) and David on lead guitar, they began to assemble the ingredients for a team of players that included full horn section and female harmony vocals. Enter Oriana Sanders, a soulful songstress from Los Angeles.
