LUTAN FYAH

Lutan Fyah is a revolutionary spirit delivering a message of love, peace, and unity through hard hitting reggae and dancehall rhythms on stages all over the world. Born Anthony Martin, in 1975 in Spanish Town, St. Catherine Parish, Jamaica, Lutan Fyah was exposed to music at a very early age. He first decided to study architecture at the University of Technology and played professional football for Constant Spring FC before focusing on music. Using the stage name Lutan Fyah, sometimes credited as Lute and Fyah, he started his musical career in 1999. Lutan’s initial influence of African consciousness was instilled by his grandfather Tamba, and his spiritual identity is rooted in Rastafar-I, Bobo Ashanti.

He has headlined shows in over 30 countries around the world and performs on stages of some of the biggest festivals across the globe. He’s recorded roughly over 200 singles and 13 albums in his career, collaborating as well with Rebelution, Chronixx, Luciano, Anthony B, Lady G, and many more.

RISE UP
Rise Up is a 5-piece Reggae band from California that was originally started in 2016 by founding members Chris Alcantara (vocals/rhythm guitar) and Alex Cortez (Drums). After gigging around the West Coast for a couple of years, the vision began to take real shape in 2019 with the additions of veteran Reggae players Rich Mihalek (bass) and Leland Smith (lead guitar/melodica). Rise Up recorded their debut EP “Lion Roar” at Imperial Sound Studios with EN Young (Nov. 2019) and added the talents of Danny Aledo (keyboards) to the band shortly after. The band then released two singles independently in 2020 with Empress Vibe and Newsman both recorded and produced by Rise Up’s own Leland Smith. They went back to the well with EN Young in 2021 and released a 5-song album titled “The Pursuit” in March. They followed it up with the independently released Dub album “Smoke Break-Rise Up Meets Jahmadeus” in April. Rise Up has had the honor of sharing stages in the past with such Reggae legends as The Meditations, Wailing Souls, Half Pint as well current artists in the genre such as Arise Roots, Marlon Asher, Sensi Trails, Josh Heinrichs and more. The band looks forward to bringing its brand of powerful Roots Rock Reggae back live to the people in 2022!
