Florida-Based Reggae Rock Band BUSHWOOD Set To Release Sophomore Album "Tidal Wave"

Bushwood is back with ten signature tracks of funky reggae just in time for the Summer of 2013! Following the band’s well received self-titled debut album, their new release showcases an expanded six piece line-up and was funded through a KickStarter campaign where fans helped subsidize the recording of the album and in turn became a vital part of its creation. Due to their proclivity for playing live, they have grown tremendously since their debut offering, resulting in an album that shines brighter than the Florida sun, and puts their music on par with the popular modern reggae acts of today. Give a listen and judge for yourself.

Of the new album, Bushwood shares, "After the positive response from fans and critics for our debut album, we are glad to finally reveal our new material to the fans who have waited so patiently. We've played many of the new songs live, but the recorded versions will have that 'studio magic' from all the time and love we've put into them. A huge thank you to everyone involved in helping us realize this vision.”

Bushwood’s music is directly influenced by the beaches and atmosphere of living in tropical south Florida and is a potent mix of the roots reggae and positive lyrics of Bob Marley & The Wailers, the upbeat party vibe of bands like Sublime, Rebelution, & Slightly Stoopid, mixed with the passion and songwriting prowess of Zac Brown, all with the underlying funk of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The flowing guitar parts are resolutely melodic, prolonging themselves into ornately-layered solos that play delightfully off of the raw intensity of Steven Ross Voronkov’s much improved vocals. Adam Moskowitz’s bass lines undulate hypnotically, driving forward, buttressing the foundation laid down by Jon Cross’ extremely solid drums and Claudio Napoles’ magical keys. The additional layers of saxophone by Carl Dykes and percussion by Eric Schechter put the final touches on the vivid soundscapes that are evocative of the ocean, and of good times with coveted friends; A respite from the worry and the tediousness of the mundane day-to-day grind. Positivity and living life to the fullest; that’s what Bushwood is all about, and this new album reflects their ethos perfectly.

The album was recorded and mixed by Lucio Rubino at his pristine award winning Fish Tank Studio in Saint Augustine, Florida, and then mastered by Maria Rice of Peerless Mastering in Boston, Massachusetts, who has worked with established reggae acts such as John Brown’s Body and Easy Star All Stars. Besides co-producing the album, Lucio also provided soaring vocals on opening track “Let It Flow” as well as “Top Of The Line,” adding a dynamic that inspires repeated listening.

To celebrate the release, Bushwood is throwing an album release party at ArtsPark Amphitheater in Hollywood, Florida on June 22 starting at 8pm! For more information on the upcoming album and tour dates, please visit Bushwood’s website at BushwoodBand.com or contact BushwoodBand@gmail.com.

Track Name: Let It Flow
Close your eyes, dream of a place you wanna be
Someplace warm or someplace cold
As your mind drifts away, let the rhythm in your soul

Just let it flow, you gotta let it take control

Envision your toes in the sand while laying in the sunshine
Every note has its place, helps to ease the mind
It can take you down where you wanna go
Sometimes you have to wait until the tradewinds blow

Just let it flow, let it take control

I wish that dreams could last forever
I wish they could go on & on… even though they can’t

Just let it flow, let it take control
Track Name: Tidal Wave
Everybody get up! Get up on the dance floor now!
We’ve got this feeling inside
Gonna make you feel the vibe
Gonna make you feel the vibe

Hit you like a tidal wave, yeah
Feel the rhythm tumbling down
Hit you like a tidal wave, baby
Everyone is gettin’ down

We’ve waited all this time
To get the real world off your mind
Listen to these words I say
Let the rest just fade away... Let the rest just fade away

Hit you like a tidal wave, yeah
Feel the rhythm tumbling down
Hit you like a tidal wave, baby
Everyone is gettin’ down



Hit you like a tidal wave, yeah
Feel the rhythm tumbling down
Hit you like a tidal wave, baby
Everyone is gettin’ down

Track Name: Live Up
If you want to leave then I’m leaving too
I wanna dance all night until the sun comes up with you
And all you need are the ones you love (love love)
Singing music, we can never get enough

As time goes by, we’ll be there for you
As time goes on by, we’ll make it through

Keep on livin’
Live up today
If you keep on giving it’ll come your way

As I sit on the bow staring at the sky
I take a swig of my drink and get so high
All of my friends are floating in the ocean
I get the smell of the sea and suntan lotion

As time goes by, we’ll care for you
As time goes on by, we’ll make it through oh yea

Keep on livin’
Live up today

Don’t wanna get up outta bed
Wanna lay all day instead with you (yeah with you)
Got all day until my show, I don’t want to see you go away

If you need some lovin’, no baby I don’t mind

You know that I don’t wanna be with any other girl
The way you make me feel is out of this world 
Yeah be my sunshine, I won’t be your rainy day
Yeah promise me you’ll stay (promise me you’ll stay)

You know it’s hard to find true love in this world…
I thank my lucky stars I found someone like you
Who will pick me up whenever I’m feeling down
My life will be just fine if you will stick around

If you need some lovin’, no baby I don’t mind

You know that I don’t wanna be with any other girl
The way you make me feel is out of this world 
Yeah be my sunshine, I won’t be your rainy day
Yeah promise me you’ll stay

Yeah be my sunshine, I won’t be your rainy day
Yeah promise me you’ll stay... Whoo!

Nothing in life is free

So keep on rising, rising like the sun
Got to give it everything until the war is won

Until the war is won

Ooh ooo Determination

Don’t rely on anything until it’s in your hands
I know that life’s unfair, it’s hard to understand

So keep on rising, rising like the sun
Got to give it everything until the war is won oh yea

Until the war is won

Ooh ooo Determination

Ooh ooo Determination
Track Name: Hold On
Say what you say, don’t waste my time
Got something to say to you gotta get it off my mind
Waking up with a rhythm in my head
A beat starts playing when I get up outta bed singin

Hold on, Hold on, Keep movin on
Sometimes the world gets kinda dark
When you feel its judging you
You got to lord you got to hold on

So fight the fight for what is right
You’ve got to let out what you have inside
Or you’ll regret the day you come to realize
Your time has come and gone, gotta open up your eyes

Hold on, Hold on, Keep movin on (Keep on moving)
The world gets kinda dark
When you feel its judging you
You got to lord you got to hold on

Got to keep moving on

Oh you got to keep moving on

Hold on, Hold on, Keep movin on (Keep on moving)
The world gets kinda dark
When you feel its judging you

Track Name: I Can Only Wonder
As I jump inside the ocean so blue
Not a cloud in sight, the sun is shinin’ thru
And I want to take my time
You know I’ve got to take it slow…

When I go on down, all that I see
All kinds of life swimming next to me
And I want to take my time
You know I’ve got to take it slow…

And I wonder if the sun looks the same
From the beach that you’re on, if you’re calling my name
I can only wonder, I can only wonder

Sun is beating down its rays on top of me
I take a deep breath as I swim into the sea
Whether on the ocean or cruisin’ in the bay
I wish that I could stay down there every day

And I want to take my time
You know I got to take it slow…

And I wonder if the sun looks the same
From the beach that you’re at, if you’re callin’ my name
I can only wonder, I can only wonder

Feel the beat feel the rhythm of the ocean
Feel the beat feel the rhythm of the ocean
You got to take it all in take it in and get down
Feel the rhythm of the ocean

I can only wonder
I can only wonder
Track Name: I Don't Want My MTV
I don’t want my MTV
It ain’t what it used to be yeah
That’s not reality
That’s not my reality no

Turn off the screen as I start to think
What happened to the music? (music)
Bit by bit it starts to fade away
We can’t let it fade away

We need to bring it back someday
Before it’s gone and it’s too late

We need to make a change
Our culture needs to rearrange
Get it back to where it used to be
Supporting positivity yeah

We need to bring it back someday
Before it’s gone and it’s too late
Track Name: Top Of The Line
Hey why don’t you pass it to me?
I feel it in the air it’s coming my way
Everyone’s feelin alright, alright…

Smoking on the ganja
Before you hit it I got to warn ya
We only smoke the top of the line

Take one hit and you’ll be fine
Cause we’ve got the fire that will blow your mind
Oohhh... Ah yea... Ah yea.. Oh yea

Smokin in the sunshine..
Smokin by the dock of the bay
Start to feel my worries just floatin’ away

Take one hit and you’ll be fine
Cause we’ve got the fire that will blow your mind
Oohhh yea... Whoah ah yea... Ah yea..

Take one hit and you’ll be fine ohh you’ll be fine
Cause we’ve got the fire that will blow your mind
Whoahhh ohh ah yea... Ah yea..

Oh yea.. Ohh yeaaaaa
Track Name: Light & Love
My head is filled with light
My heart is filled with love
We could travel all around
Or stay here right at home and I’ll be just fine

Stay you’ll stay a little bit longer

If I hear you say this will never get old
I have found somebody with a soul just like myself
If I could find a reason to make you stay
I’d know I wasn’t wasting my days away with you

Wasting my days with you

Let’s take a walk down to the beach
To see how far we’ll reach
We could walk to the pier or lye here in the sand and I’ll be just fine

Stay you’ll stay a little bit longer

If I hear you say this will never get old
I have found somebody with a soul just like myself
If I could find a reason to make you stay
I’d know I wasn’t wasting my days away with you

Wasting my days with you

If I hear you say this will never get old
I have found somebody with a soul just like myself
If I could find a reason to make you stay
I’d know I wasn’t wasting my days away with you

Wasting my days with you, Wasting my days with you
