Scholars Word is a reggae/dub band based out of Florida, USA. Never one to compromise the sound or message of reggae Scholars Word has strived to remain true to the art while maintaining their original style and letting their different musical influences shine through..
The band has been together almost a decade touring the eastern U.S. on a regular basis and having also toured parts of California and the Western US. The group has just released (Dec. 1, 2006) its newest cd "HOW LONG" which features TEN new tracks full of conscious lyrics, roots riddims and a dose of DUB.
