THE BIOGRAPHY

If you have had any doubt that love and music walk hand and hand then you have yet to see and hear the Inner Visions Band. Their music has garnered them fans the world over and has helped to close the gap between racial, religious and economic divisions by leaning on the one thing we all possess and should exercise.
That one thing is love!

Hailing from St. John, US Virgin Islands, this once hidden treasure, is a family in every sense of the word (two Brothers and two Sons). Yet everyone they encounter is easily welcomed into their family as well. At a time when “Roots Reggae Music” is struggling to keep it’s identity intact, it is quite refreshing to find this band performing, recording and producing as well as they do. Melodic song writing, impassioned lead vocals and sweet three part harmonies are reminiscent of the best vocal groups of the seventies and indeed, their style bridges the gap between foundation reggae and other genres such as R&B, and rock.
From Grassroots Festival in New York, Antiliansse festen in Belgium, SXSW in Texas, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival in California, Dios Latinos Festival in Holland to Muzikfest in Pennsylvania, Inner Visions has blazed the trail!
..............................................Now it’s your turn to be “Inner-Gized!”
