"Headshine realize their dreams with chill, acoustic Cali rock. After being nominated for Best Acoustic Band for the OC Music Awards last year, Headshine embarked on a massive tour around the country which culminated with a show with The Wailers." A song that RAS wrote, sang and played on acoustic guitar caught the ear of producer Jim Perkins (Big B, Scott Russo, Dirty Heads, Cisco Adler, Kaleo of Pepper). Jim showed the one-take demo to his business partner along with some other close friends in the music industry. For some reason, they wanted to hear more.
Headshine's debut record "Better Things" premiered on 91X in San Diego and is currently # 2 on Spotify's chill surf chart with Rebelution, Ziggy Marley, Slightly Stoopid, Stick Figure, Pepper, and catches the attention of CBS radio. "Headshine, create music which conjures up these quintessential California moments with warm-bodied acoustics, Bob Marley-inspired reggae riffs, persuasive percussion, and a fearless fader scratching that gives their sound an understated edge. Much like the typical native Californian, Headshine is a musical mosaic of melodies effortlessly melting into each other, supported by luminous lyrics prompting the listeners towards self-compassion and positive action. This sound transmuted into feeling is the kind of experience that has prompted many a youthful daydreamer into finding their own dreams with the peaceful churn of the Pacific Ocean as their soundtrack." KROQ
Word of mouth kick-started the southern California artist to the national stage. Headshine has performed at Chillin Music Festival in Florida, Rhode Island Waterfront Events Center, Mount Laurel Performing Arts Center in Pennsylvania, Sundance Film Festival in Utah, Palms Casino in Las Vegas, Mammoth Reggae Festival and many more. Headshine has also opened for Ziggy Marley, Jamaican reggae-legends The Wailers, international ska band The English Beat, pop-punks Less Than Jake, national rock band Lit, Katchafire from New Zealand, Stick Figure, Natty Vibes from Hawaii, The Supervillains, Ballyhoo and The Original Wailers just to name a few.
Headshine's rise from bonfires and beer to the House of Blues with legendary acts is now captured in the new single "Here and Now" by producer Lewis Richards (Dirty Heads, Sugar Ray, Sublime). Fans can enjoy watching California's rock & reggae artist come to life in a new music video 'Here and Now'. With a touch of reggae and California sunshine, the Huntington Beach singer/songwriter has cultivated a surfer/acoustic sound called Headshine; and it's what happens when something comes alive inside and begins to radiate. One moment you're singing along and the next thing you know you're at a show. Listen to the music and your head will shine.
