About the Band

Category: Band
Music Genre: Jazz, R&B, Reggae, RnB

CULTIVATED MIND is a reggae, dub, and jazz combo from the Hampton Roads area of South Eastern Virginia that has been creating socially - conscious, high-energy, infectious roots and dub music since 2013. Formed by producer and multi-instrumentalist Anthony Brand, Cultivated Mind has grown over the years, producing multiple albums, EP's, and collaborations with other East Coast artists and artists in Europe and Jamaica. Current members include Chad "Yadi Rama" Tyler on keys/dubbing, Roschell "Old Man" Diggs on bass/backing vocals, Adam Mack on organ and backing vocals, Rob Martin on drums and percussion, and Christian "Sticky G" Lubertazzi on Tenor Saxophone. The band rotates between an acoustic trio and full band for live performances and can accommodate any size venue. Though mostly playing original music, Cultivated Mind's concerts also often include medleys of old reggae classics, dub versions of classic rock and blues songs, and live improvisations. Cultivated Mind appreciates the constant love and support from our family, friends, and fans (The "Cultivators"), and we hope you take the time to explore and enjoy our discography on Spotify, iTunes, or our youtube channel. Bless and Love!

We owe a huge debt of Gratitude to today's Birthday Queen, Wendy Harris. You may know her from Harris' House of Henna & Body Art, from constantly supporting shows in the reggae community (and blues, and rock, and ...pretty much any music scene), And for being the rock behind our Cultivated Mind Street Team in the 757 and the manager of our "Cultivators" Page with her husband and fellow reggae soldier Benjamin Harris. She has been pivotal in getting our music spread both here and abroad, and has been kind, supportive and encouraging through the years, treating us like blood and always giving us hope to keep pushing. We love you Wendy, and are blessed to call you family. Cultivated Mind wishes you a blessed birthday, and we hope you finally get some time to relax today! BIG UP!
Big Shout to our brother Johnson Michael on his earth strong today! Bless up King!

It's been an honor working on this project with D'Original Reverence 432hz to help create His new dub wise jam "10 pound of Collie." Reverence aka The Voice of the Mountains linked up with me at a show in NYC and has been a source of encouragement and inspiration since. Love and respect as well to YaHw Wise for coming through and tying the track together with some beautiful chants and a nice verse! Take a moment and show some to love to these guys and King Street Records by bumping this new track in the stereo!
