Not long into the writing and recording process of their fourth studio album, Setting in the West, reggae-fusion act Spiritual Rez knew they were creating something special. Under the guidance of producer Kenny Carkeet, a founding member of AWOLNATION, the eclectic sextet fused their high-energy reggae sound with an edgy contemporary pop polish.
Tireless touring and a higher education in music has found Spiritual Rez in complete harmony on stage; forging a reputation as a live act that never fails to exhilarate a crowd. Carkeet describes them as “one of the hardest working bands in showbiz.”
To date, Spiritual Rez has shared the stage with notable names like George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic, Steel Pulse, Jimmy Buffet, and countless others.
“I have total confidence in every member of our operation on and off stage,” says lead vocalist and guitarist Toft Willingham. “Having recorded four albums before Setting in the West, we felt honed and ready to bring that confidence to the studio.”
