New Music Monday with True Press

With the burgeoning SoCal reggae scene blossoming, True Press is emerging from a plethora of talented bands.  With these new, hard working, regularly touring bands hitting the scene hard, standing out is a task in itself.  True Press makes me weak in the knees with their sounds. Full of talented creative musicians with conscious lyrics that focus on positive world change, love and self betterment.  Through songs such as  ‘Lovely Situation’, ‘Wake Up Cry’, ‘Anything is Possible’, ‘Soul Rebel’ and ‘Real Eyes, Realize, Real Lies’ True Press gently reminds us that “Anything is Possible”, especially when its done with “love, sweet love”.

I love the horn section and the solid rhythm, backing Pedros soulful vocals.  My favorite song on the album is “Wake up Cry”, it has a great little guitar riff at the beginning and I love the melody.  It gets stuck in my head all day. “Consider this your wakeup call, to all, consider this your wake up cry, its time.”  ‘Lovely Situation’, ‘Anything is Possible’, ‘Soul Rebel’ and ‘Real Eyes, Realize, Real Lies’ all are right behind in the favorites category.

Mellow and with just enough energy backing them up that you can't help but groove and want to get up and dance, True Press is music you can't get enough of.  For me, its the perfect music first thing in the morning.  Gets me amped and ready for the day on a positive note, booty shakin’ while I drink my coffee but not so upbeat I want to throw my stereo through the window.  For me this is absolutely one of the best albums I have heard so far in 2014.  Im excited to see where True Press is a year from now.

Interested in hearing more for yourself?  You can currently catch them on tour with Fortunate Youth and be sure to check out their brand new album “Anything is Possible”.  They will be at The Catalyst Atrium with the gusy from Fortunate Youth on their “It’s all a Jam” Spring Tour on May 3rd, and then back for CaliRoots Sat., May 24th.

“No more time to waste, and theres no more time to hate, oh its been so full upon your plate, you think theres no time left, but its never too late.  So its time to rise and shine, its time to put your past behind, so consider this your wake up call, to all, consider this your wake up cry, its time.  Time to make your dreams a reality.  No ones gonna make a move for you.”  
~Wake Up Cry
