Arise Roots
Arise Roots was formed in 2010 with the passion to create a new, unique roots‐reggae band.
Rising up from the streets of Los Angeles, the band had one goal: create a fresh reggae sound
with a modern feel that appeals to all walks of life without compromising the true feel of roots
Founding member, Ron Montoya, was determined to recruit an all‐star cast of musicians
who were appreciative of 1970's style reggae. After a vigorous search, Arise Roots became host
to five extremely talented individuals who had already made a name for themselves through
performing in numerous local reggae bands and backing various reggae legends coming into
their area. With Ron on drums, Rudy Covarrubias towering on bass, and Todd Johnson adding
his trademark mix of keys and harmonies, the band has secured a dynamic rhythm section.
Lead vocalist, Karim Israel, was then added to the group, providing his raw, soulful flow which
pairs up perfectly with his powerful lyrics. Last to join was lead guitarist, Robert Sotelo, who
adds a solid final touch with his signature guitar solos found throughout the bands recordings
and live performances.
In 2010, the band released their first EP titled, Lay Your Guns Down . Next, they received
great recognition with the 2013 release of their first full‐length album, Moving Forward . More
recently, Arise Roots has linked up with E.N Young (Tribal Seeds) at Imperial Sound Recording
Studio to work on their highly anticipated sophomore album, Love and war Which hit number 7
on Itunes Reggae charts in the summer of 2014. In 2015 Arise Roots has made a heavy festival
presence & executed 2 very successful Nationwide tours with Tribal Seeds, The Expanders &
New Kingston even went International Co headlining The Victoria Ska Fest alongside House Of
Throughout their time together, Arise Roots has shared the stage with artists such as
Barrington Levy, Sister Carol, Gramps Morgan, Don Carlos, The Wailers, Luciano, Matisyahu,
Midnite, Michael Rose, Gondwana, Big Youth, Dennis Al Capone, The Aggrolites, The Lions,
Quinto Sol, Tristan Palmer, Sammy Dread, Ky‐Mani Marley, Ken Boothe, Carlton and The Shoes,
Freddie McGregor, The Meditations, The Expanders, Fortunate Youth, Natural Vibrations Dirty
Heads, Rootz Underground, Tribal Seeds, Anuhea, and hip‐hop legends, Public Enemy.
As today's reggae music scene has branched out into multiple sub‐genres, Southern
California's Arise Roots has helped keep the ever‐evolving sound of reggae music grounded
with their fresh take on ROOTS music. The true essence of their music is caught in their live
performances, so make sure to keep an eye out for Arise Roots coming to a city near you.

Ital Vibes
Beginning in February of 2011, Ital Vibes (formerly known as High Tides) formed through a series of experimental jam sessions. Initially, the band consisted of 3 members, Aaron Valdez, Marc Donini, and Kennedy Peneueta. Once the potential to create serious music came to fruition, the band began expanding. Soon after, other high school friends came into the picture. The addition of a lead guitar, bass, a horn section, and percussion added a new dynamic to the band. Together they've blended their eclectic influences from traditional Roots to contemporary styles of Reggae to harness a sound all their own. Throughout the year, Ital Vibes have played shows with many up and coming bands such as, Fortunate Youth, The Simpkin Project, Sono Vero, Arise Roots, Sand Section, Rian Basilio & the Roosters and also artists like Bushman and Johny Osbourne. This group of young artists have made original music together and have built a loyal fan base in the Southbay area.
