Word, sound and power.
These words alone can describe the essence of Roots Almighty. A bass pounding international reggae band based out of the state of Florida, USA. While capturing the essence and drive of authentic roots reggae, they have made their imprint on Florida's reggae scene and are now in the process of making their way into the National and International touring circuit. They have enjoyed success in opening for International acts such as; Cold Play, Andy Grammar, Shaggy, The Wailers, Yellow Man, Kymani Marley, Third World, Collie Buddz, Maxi Priest, and Pato Banton. Staying true to their mission of spreading the message of the Almighty through their music, they are successfully captivating a growing fan base and are known for their spiritual and socially conscious lyrics that empower men, women and children into thought and social action.
Their lyrics, inspired by the growing awareness of the culture they find themselves in and singer/song-writer Jesus Martinez' spiritual awakening, have manifested tracks such as "PREPARE FOR THE WAR", "THANKS AND PRAISES" and "WARN THE CHILDREN". All off these can be found on the band's first album 'A ROOTS REVIVAL' set to be released in Spring of 2018.
The Florida based group has played together for over a decade, first coming together in 2006 as "Deep Roots" later to be rebranded as "Jahgape" in 2011. With previous releases under those bands and some international success, Roots Almighty was born and formed due to the musical and spiritual evolution of its core members; Jesus Martinez (rhythm guitar and vocals), Alonso Wiener (bass), and Enrique Romero (keyboards). They are a band that has dug deep to develop their own orthodox roots reggae sound, landing in the roots-reggae movement known as "New Roots". With the help of Willy La Torre on guitar and seasoned veteran George Cadle on drums they are bringing their message of truth to everyone that opens their heart to receive it. Watch out for this heavy-hitting, heart pumping roots music that is coming your way at full force.
