Easy Star All-Stars:
New York City's Michael G. (born Michael Goldwasser) and Ticklah (born Victor Axelrod) are the two longtime friends who form the Easy Star All-Stars. Goldwasser had been playing guitar with the R&B band Special Request, but after five active years the band broke up. Around this time, the guitarist turned his attention to reggae and formed the Easy Star All-Stars with former Special Request keyboardist Ticklah. Ticklah had been gigging with Cooly's Hot Box, worked with DJ Spinna and Dr. Israel, and created remixes for Les Nubians
and Mary J. Blige
. The first release under the Easy Star All-Stars banner came in 1997 with the team's production on Rob Symeonn's "Anything for Jah" single, and a collection of their productions, Easy Star, Vol. 1, appeared in 1998. Working with Brooklyn sound system Twin Sound, the two organized three tribute concerts to Augustus Pablo in 1999 and backed the likes of Sugar Minott, the Meditations, and Sister Carol on-stage and in the studio. In 2003, the duo released Dub Side of the Moon, their reggae/dub version of Pink Floyd
's most famous album. In 2006, they turned toward Radiohead
's OK Computer and reimagined it as Radiodread, while 2009 saw them honor the Beatles
with Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band. Dub masters like Mad Professor, Adrian Sherwood, and Kalbata appeared on 2010's all-remix set, Dubber Side of the Moon. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi
Drawing from a diverse musical palette of funk, rock, reggae, and hip-hop, Proverbial seamlessly intertwines their music with heart-felt vocal harmonies and powerful lead vocals. For half a decade, Proverbial has been rocking crowds with their high energy, no limits take on sonic audio expression.
Proverbial has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with the likes of Sublime with Rome, Tribal Seeds, FLOBOTS, Stick Figure, Ballyhoo!, The Bridge, Mambo Sauce, Three Legged Fox, along with dozens of other remarkable acts. Gathering momentum from their sophomore offering, Pick up the Pieces, the group’s boundless potential has certainly been noted and will only continue to unfold as they travel from city to city sowing their musical oats.
Keep your eyes and ears open as they continue to spread the Proverbial sound...
