Biography

7th Generation is a rock band heavily influenced by reggae with overtures of dub and hip-hop. Catchy horn fills and simple melodies coupled with solid rhythms and thunderous rock riffs guarantee to get the audience out of their chairs and shaking their boodies on the dance floor. What was born out of the ashes of recently deceased HerbN Pipeline, 7th Generation promises a new approach to a timeless genre of music. With the addition of horns, and the experience and professionalism past projects have lacked 7th Generation promises to take the reggae/rock scene by storm. In just three months, 7G has already established a Texas-wide performance circuit, co-headlined in front of a packed audience at the 1st Annual REGGAE-FEAST event in San Antonio, and rocked a headlining spot, among the likes of Dr. King Cobra, Michael Black, Cas Haley, and Jah Roots, for both days of the Bob Marley Fest at the Sunken Gardens Ampitheater in San Antonio in November 2007. 7th Generation will be ushering in 2008 with a huge 'back to school' charity event in Corpus Christi. 7G will be organizing and headlining the "Funk School- A Rocking Reggae Festival" to benefit South Texas Academic Rising Scholars (STARS). The stage is currently being set for a busy 2008 across the state of Texas and beyond. One Love.. 7G

(About the name:
7th Generation is a trend of thought passed down from Iraqoi Indians. The Iraqoi would make decisions prioritizing the interest of 7 generations ahead of themselves ensuring that the future was available for better for those still to come. We pulled our name from this in hopes of inspiring people to think ahead, to make decisions to ensure a lasting world that our future generations can enjoy and not live just for the moment without concern for the destruction of a planet so potentially beautiful. The mass cosumption of finite natural resource, global warming, and rising oil needs are all things that we should be considering in our daily lives and decisions. Above all however, we believe in peace and love and making our contribution to a better world. )

So Many Problems

Written By: J. Phillips

SO MANY PROBLEMS

So many problems plague the world today
Well they say that they love but do they really know
Those places those problems today
So many questions to answer though
Well it seems so simple said you take a small example about being so Irie
Well you look in the mirror and you will find what it is that you hide,
Said the power to change the things that we hate.

Listen to the words and I’m sure that you relate.
Listen to the words and I’m sure that you relate.
Listen to the words and I’m sure that you relate.
Listen to the words and I’m sure that you relate.

You gotta have l o v e and sacrifice, said
You gotta have love and sacrifice.
Said you gotta have l o v e and sacrifice, said
You gotta have love and sacrifice.

Well it make no difference if your black, white or yellow
Say you come along with me
Say your bein my fellow well let my people go
I can see now
That you don’t want to though.

Well they say that we’re free but tell me really are we?
Well they say that we’re free but tell me really are we?
Are we free, are we?

You got to have love and sacrifice
Said you got to have love and sacrifice
Said you got to have love and sacrifice
You got to have love and sacrifice.

Gotta to have love
Ya gotta to have love
Ya gotta to have love.

And sacrifice
And sacrifice.
