The best kept secret in music


"The Independent"

You mean to tell me these guys aren't signed yet? The irie-vibe providers have played just about every club in this town, and then some. They've just released their second album, "Life-Elements-Vision" pushing the limits of reggae music to the extreme. It's only a matter of time before they get swept up by a label and are touring the globe, giving the world a dose of their sonic medecine. - Matt Kettman

"Music Connection"

Cannons raise the bar on the possibilities of reggae music.

With up to 10 musicians on stage at one time, this band is powerful and almost immediately got the crowd moving.

The Cannons pull out all the stops when it comes to performing their unique brand of reggae music. Their songs are lively and positive and presented with enough enthusiasm to incite the audience to dance.

Currently, the Cannons appear to be at the top of their game, and should be seriously considered by any labels looking to pick up an innovative and experienced reggae act. - Scott Perham

"The Beat"

After rave reviews from live shows upcoast I finally got a chance to hear Cannons via their new release "Life-Elements-Vision" and the disc lives up to the raves.

...Cannons have honed their skills playing live and have that "interactive" feel studio bands never quite match.

- Chuck Foster

"The Beat"

With more players and a fuller sound than when I last saw them, the Santa Barbara-based Cannons presented a good sampling of their developing style. A foundational vibe, occasional hip-hop tangents and a bit of jam band sensibility characterize their sort of reggae, and on-stage their humble committment to the music was evident. The Cannons have rightly received critical acclaim in these parts for their recordings and performances, and recognition beyond a regional level will likely result if they keep up the good work shown here. (Bob Marley Day Festival in Long Beach Arena 2003) - Tom Orr


Cannons craft delicious melodies and fluid music, topped off by magnetic vocal performances and slick production, making this album a true undiscovered gem.

Cannons amy not sound like they're "staright outta Kingston" but their vibe is likeable, believeable and wicked. - reviewer at


"Run Come" a song that has been high on Creation-Steppin's ratings since we started playing it, is the highlight of this album.

"John Crow" is another outstanding track that has some great sax work to jazz it up.

This is some of the best work amongst a growing number of U.S. reggae artists. - Dj Bahilman


Thanks and Praise- 10 song LP from 1998
Life-Elements-Vision- 12 song LP from 2002
Run Come receives the most radio play.
