ARTIST BIO

Iration is an alternative/reggae group of musicians formed in Isla Vista, CA. A deep-rooted reggae influence is fused with elements of rock and pop to create smooth original sounds that keep listeners’ feet moving, hands swaying and hearts beating.

“We’re all about luv” is the band’s motto. The group is made up of members Joseph Dickens (Drums), Joseph King (Engineer), Cayson Peterson (Keyboard/Synth), Micah Pueschel (Guitar/ Vocals), and Adam Taylor (Bass). All members met while growing up in Hawaii, but formed Iration after reconnecting in Santa Barbara, CA during college. They have since released three full-length albums, Automatic (2013), Time Bomb (2010) and No Time for Rest (2007), as well as three EP’s, Fresh Grounds (2011), Sample This (2008), and New Roots (2006).

Time Bomb, remains in the top 20 on Billboard’s Reggae Album Chart to this day. Their third full-length album, Automatic, which debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, is described as ‘forging a truly unique listening experience by crossing genre boundaries, fusing reggae with fresh pop and rock influences’. Both albums contain tracks that have reached the #1 position on several alternative radio stations. Iration is currently putting the final touches on an album recorded over the course of the last several months in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, CA, which is scheduled for a summer 2015 release.

The group has been touring nationally since 2008, performing at: Lollapalooza, McDowell Mountain Music Festival, Wakarusa, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Sunset Strip Music Festival etc. The band has headlined several successful national club/theater tours with multiple sold-out shows throughout the country from Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theater, to St. Petersburg’s Jannus Live. The Hawaiian-bred musicians look forward to spreading their original sound and Aloha spirit and squeezing a surf in in-between.

This is my 6th time seeing Iration live! They still surprise me with the way they rock the place! I will see them again on the summer tour and recommend to anyone who loves good quality music to check them out.

One of the best concerts I have seen. Cannot wait to see them again. They were so good live, so full of energy, and so genuinely happy to be there. You can tell they love what they do. I know and love all their songs and was on my feet dancing and singing the entire time. Excellent show!!!
