Houston, TX-based IRIE TIME creates uplifting, compelling music in the reggae, Caribbean jazz, and soca traditions. The culturally-diverse crew continues to explore innovative melodic terrain on their new single “Doing It Over”.
IRIE TIME’s music has been described as "just about as refreshing as a bottle of Ting grapefruit soda on a sweltering summer day." -The Houston Press
For over a decade, IRIE TIME has brought its joyful energy and dynamic show (the group travels with their own sound system and lighting) to audiences across the U.S. and Europe.
“Doing It Over” follows the successful release of its most recent full length, In Another Time (out now). The CD release also includes exciting Dub versions on the same disc, as well as a Spanish mix. As expected, it has drawn widespread attention to the band's unique combination of reggae, jazz, soca and dub, paving the way for an international touring schedule in 2020.
Selections from the band’s Island Romance release were recorded in Kingston, Jamaica and were produced by legendary guitarist Earl ‘Chinna’ Smith of Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, and the Wailers band.
A collection of IRIE TIME’s songs entitled Reggae Hits Volume 1, along with two videos, were released nationwide in the country of New Guinea. That was followed by Live Up, a high-energy concert album featuring both new and catalog tracks.
