Through a river of cosmic circumstances rises homegrown roots reggae band, LOVE ETERNAL. They united as musicians as well as family two years ago near the ocean of Santa Cruz, CA with a common aspiration in mind - developing and producing beautiful, conscious music. They live, create music and raise their children together under a Redwood canopy as a communal family, which lends to their tightly woven musicianship.
LOVE ETERNAL's unique blend of roots reggae intertwines the pulsing beats of Kris ‘Tafari' Smith and breezy, positive lyrics of Shawna and Jahred Namaste. Papa Shanti's rhythmic bass and the unexpected mandolin melodies of Ray ‘of Sunshine' really get their fans dancing. As life-long musicians dedicated to their love and passion for the arts, LOVE ETERNAL draws inspiration from an eclectic mix of everything from Bob Marley, Israel Vibration and other classic roots reggae of the 60s and 70s -- to the Grateful Dead, Santana, Soul and Gospel. The band channels these influences into a distinctive sound all their own which keeps reggae fans as well as a more universal audience wanting more.
