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!

A huge thank you and massive respect to Julian and the people at reggaeville for premiering the newest video for the single "Old Moses," set to hit Reggaeville.com and the Reggaeville YouTube channel on July 17th! Big shout as well to Chris Wyatt for lending his talents on trombone for this tune! Stay tuned!
Massive Birthday blessings to my Paisan and brother from another mudda, Chris Battista. Chris has been a huge supporter of CM and has come to shows far and wide to help push the message. Make sure to keep an eye for his own CMB reggae label, and if you catch him, wish him a blessed Earthstrong! Much love brother!
MASSIVE BIRTHDAY BLESSINGS and tons of love and respect to Mr. Glen Allan, the man who keeps us all tied together in the Va Beach Reggae Community. I cannot describe in words how supportive this man has been to our local musicians, including myself, and we want to wish him the best birthday ever! Keep rocking brother, much love, and hope you have a great earthstrong! #vabeachreggae
Keep an eye out...

Tune in tonight at 8 pm and catch an exclusive acoustic performance on my personal profile (https://www.facebook.com/tony.brand.351) BOOM!
A Big shout and blessed Earthstrong to our percussionist Jeremy Sanchez! You might have seen him bringing the heat on the congas at our last few shows, and crisis permitting, many more to come! Make sure to wish him a happy birthday, and hope everyone is safe and healthy!
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!
A Happy Birthday/ Blessed Earthstrong to the man who keeps it thumping, Chad aka Yadi Rama! Blessed vibes on your birthday brother, hope you have a great one!
