Composed of dedicated, versatile musicians and led by Master of Ceremony, Ryan Nava, SixthDegree has been storming stages and commanding crowds throughout the East Coast since first coming together in 2007.
Experimenting mostly in Dub/Reggae, Hip-Hop, Afro-Beat and various world musics, SixthDegree show's feature constantly evolving instrumentation and guest musicians as well as fierce improvisation and exceptional performance. All music is centered around the idea of simple, hypnotic grooves meant to free the mind and let loose our troubles in the world.

SixthDegree has released two independent studio albums entitled "Initial Transmission" and "Trapelo Sessions". Both albums are a mixed bag of genres and all original material featuring various guest musicians with world-class playing.
In a world filled with plugins, digital instruments and auto-tune, these albums were dedicated to capturing the sounds of real people playing through real analog instruments and presenting the true performances of those players.

SixthDegree's music balances between respect and dedication to traditional roots musics and pushing the bounds of exploration and experimentation in new styles. The goal of this tribe is to continue constantly playing out live wherever we are welcome and composing/recording new music for your minds and bodies to groove to.
