New SOJA studio album 'Strength To Survive' is the band's debut on ATO Records. The DC-based band recorded the album with acclaimed producer John Alagia, whose credits include Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer and O.A.R, among others.
Lead singer Jacob Hemphill says 'Strength To Survive' was greatly inspired by Bob Marley's 'Survival.' "That's the greatest reggae album ever made," he says. "Marley wrote that album after he went to Africa, and I lived in Africa when I was a young kid. I remember listening to that album for the first time and having all these long-forgotten memories unleashed."
Over the course of the past few years, SOJA has sold more than 150,000 albums, headlined large theatres in more than 15 countries around the world, generated over 20 million+ YouTube views, and amassed over a half-million Facebook fans. The past year and a half has seen this 7-piece rule the road, playing more than 360 dates, including headlining massive sold-out tours of North and South America.
"Our test in the west in the years to come:
Does the dollar really matter when the whole worlds gone? Worry about yourself while the world still turns…
Wait until we're watching it burn
DO WE HAVE THE STRENGTH TO SURVIVE?"
– Jacob Hemphill
