"The Lambsbread is one of the acts that make music along the philosophic principles of the “love and unity” vibes, and it all comes around together, through the sound and the lyrics."
Formed on the mystical island of Kauai, and currently based on Maui, The Lambsbread is one of the foundational roots reggae artists' of Hawaii. Delivering a positive message of love & unity, The Lambsbread is known around the world for their conscious message and hard roots riddims. The sound is serious roots with a message of upliftment for the people.
The foundation was set by vocalists Kaya & Nadia in 2003, coming together to create a life & legacy of music. their first single "Love in the House” (Liberation Riddim, ZION HIGH PRODUCTIONS) was released on 45 in Jamaica alongside tunes from Capleton, Yami Bolo, Turbulence, & Lutan Fyah. This was the first time an artist from Hawaii was ever released on Jamaican vinyl. The tune was a hit and ended up on radio shows, mixtapes, and sound systems around the world giving The Lambsbread their first international exposure. Since that time the Lambsbread have released 5 full length albums and several singles.
Over the years the lambsbread have worked with some of the best reggae musicians in the business, in the studio & on stage, but recently two of Kaya & Nadia's children have stepped up to the musical works making the Lambsbread a family musical group. Holding down the drums, writing, mixing and producing is 19yr old Samuel Levi, with his brother of 15 years old Jacob Selassie playing keyboards, and also specializing in video production. Even at their young age, Samuel and Jacob have already recorded and toured with veteran reggae musicians like Christopher Meredith (Bass Player for Stephen & Ziggy Marley) & Ras Bonitto (Guitarist for Bunny Wailer).
THE LAMBSBREAD’s latest album “WORLD NEEDS LOVE” is an essential album bound in positivity, reality, and livity. Each album has had a unique and original vibration and their fifth release is a natural progression. the Lambsbread has a consistent talent to build songs that appeal universally, and the title track is a pulsating observation of worldly tribulations. visuals for the title track brings to light the contradictions we see everyday, and also the message that though everyone is unique, we are all one. The Lambsbreads' works on this album have been elevated with crucial combinations alongside reggae music icon Sizzla Kolonji on "Roots & culture”, and grammy award winning Morgan Heritage on "Feel The Vibes". Their catalog is bound by truth & conviction, and their ability to link with a royal roll call of the best in the business allows pure engagement of heart & soul.
The Lambsbread has performed with reggae greats like Freddie Mcgregor, Barrington Levy, Toots & the Maytals, Kymani Marley, and Prezident Brown, as well as sharing the stage with the latest generation of artists like Kabaka Pyramid, Protoje, Dezarie, Hempress Sativa & more. The Lambsbread also toured the Hawaiian islands with legendary St. Croix roots band midnite in 2011. The Lambsbread deliver a high-grade stage show that keeps the audience captivated with their strong stage presence & positive message.
2018 & 2019 saw the Lambsbread embarking on two US tours doing 40+ shows across the U.S., performing to fans in California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Texas, St. Louis, Miami, New York, Rhode Island, and more. Getting a great response for their live shows, a video of their performance in Miami went viral on instagram gaining millions of views when the youngest member of the Lambsbread family took the stage and mashed up the place. At only 5 years old Ikaika Lion performs with total confidence and style, and always brings a joy to the crowd when he takes the stage.
Now at home in Hawaii & back in the studio, The Lambsbread is currently about to deliver the first single from their upcoming 2020 album. The song is called “Pass me the Fire”, and is a blazing roots track, and lyrically a scathing commentary of the system. teaming up once again with veteran bass player Chris Meredith, the bassline is heavy, and moves the track. Composed by Jacob Selassie, and Mixed by Samuel Levi, the Lambsbread family once again delivers some quality roots reggae music for the massive. The single release will also include a new video, and is leading up to the forthcoming album release in 2020.
A royal family of reggae, bringing forth the vibration of love & unity through their sound, The Lambsbread is a powerful voice in reggae music steadily on the rise.
