    Buddha Council

    Reggae

    In 2013, the Mid-Atlantic reggae scene gave birth to Buddha Council. Functioning as a reggae think-tank, their mission was simple. They wanted to release progressive reggae compositions based on collaborations from a thriving community of artists. Originally comprised of members from numerous groups and backing bands, the Council quickly found footing in their own unique take on Future Roots music. They released their debut, self-titled album in early 2014, and it quickly developed a local following. Bolstered by the support, they returned to the studio to record a follow up album. Their sophomore LP, “Consider This” was a grassroots success. Their songs had taken root and found the Council sharing the stage with Reggae and Ska legends like Steel Pulse, The Wailers, King Yellowman, John Brown’s Body, and The Slackers. Expanded touring has served to spread their message and hone their craft even further. Buddha Council's music has evolved into the perfect balance of a band continually pushing genre boundaries while simultaneously rediscovering forgotten rhythms of reggae's yesteryear. Their anticipated third album “True Love” will be released on Roots Musician Records on 4.6.2018. True to the album title, their formula has not changed; truth in their music and love for what they do.
