New Bio

Of Good Nature is an indie rock-reggae four piece that was formed in

Charlotte, NC in 2011 by front-man, guitarist Cameron Brown and drummer

Joey Vachon. Coming up in the thriving music scene in the Queen City has 

been vital to the band’s early success, as well as the blending 

of rich musical styles which transcends rock-reggae with healthy doses of funk, 

jam and rock n’ roll. It is not a stretch to say that Of Good Nature is fairly compared 

to bands like Dave Matthews Band and Tauk as they are to rock-reggae 

stalwarts like 311 and Dirty Heads.

Their 2011 debut album, Just Add Water (which won Indie-Ville Reggae

Album of the Year, Nashville) was recorded as a three piece, but founding members,

Brown and Vachon, knew that the inclusion of trombone would add elements to 

their sound that would enable them to be more dynamic, both in writing and performing. 

Trombonist Brandon Hucks was welcomed to the band in 2013, to round out

the lineup which already consisted of original members, Cameron Brown (lead

vocals/guitar) and Joey Vachon (backup vocals/drums), along with Jon Reed (bass).

In the time between the release of Just Add Water and their sophomore album Life Worth Livin, Of Good Nature hit the road, touring the length of the East Coast, developing an 

ever-expanding fan base, all the while writing the songs that would eventually 

end up making it onto their sophomore album. Introspective, thoughtful, and eloquent

lyrics pierce through well arranged musicianship, exampled here in Life Worth Livin... 

"Freedom is a way of expression, but this world’s started to get a bit depressive. They trying 

to intercept the people’s written message, abuse the technology we invented. Satellites record, 

people on the floor, living their life while they take a little more. Raising up the prices so 

no one can afford, the rich stay rich, the people stay poor."

On October 23rd 2015, Life Worth Livin debuted at #5 on the iTunes Top Reggae 

Album Chart. The band was featured in Irie Magazine : Cali Edition (Nov. 2015), 

scoring their own "Respect” multi-page write up; additionally, the title track was featured as 

The Pier’s “Mp3 Leak of the Week” and several songs from the album are being spun on 

some of the most prominent internet radio stations. Life Worth Livin has received

widespread praise from Of Good Nature’s contemporaries, particularly Howi Spangler 

(Ballyhoo!) who had this to say about the title track single: “The intro guitar/bass riff has that 

311-shuffle vibe that I like…I also like how the song goes more uptempo in the bridge, 

almost like a jam band. Then they bring it back down to finish it out. Nice to hear a solid 

American reggae rock song from an East Coast band. It's very easy to get cheesy with it 

and these guys don't go there with Life Worth Livin.”

Of Good Nature has racked up an impressive touring resume in their brief history,

having played mainstream festivals such as Shamrock Fest (Washington, DC) and sharing

the stage with major acts such as Sublime with Rome, Dropkick Murphys, Tribal Seeds, 

Keller Williams, The Movement, Ballyhoo!, Badfish, and many more.
