Akasha is a fusion of deep groove reggae, blistery blues rock, and hip hop flavors with pure melodies and rich vocal harmonies. Stylistically, Akasha’s base elements are never forced but always flow seamlessly from one song to the next. Akasha’s diverse approach gives birth to an unmistakable variety of heavy, raw grooves reminiscent of Bob Marley and the Wailers, Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, and the Roots.
Akasha unifies their diversity of styles through the lush vocal work of Cosmos Ray. His performances are riveting and personal, as though he is speaking directly to you. The quartet is anchored by Doug Bistrow’s thumping upright bass and Mikey August’s solid drum work. Scott Moss’ dynamic electric guitar combines with them to create a thick and colorful tapestry of rhythm and sound.
AKASHA: the first of five material elements of which the physical universe is composed (earth, air, fire, water, and akasha). The element of omnipresent spiritual power that permeates the universe. It is related to outer space, inner space, the unmanifest, and the life force.
