“Introducing Sowflo, a band to watch that originated just over a year ago, also featured in this issue's fashion pages 46-47. The story? Jake Dorris (Vox/Ac Guitar) and Joe Records (Keys/Producer) got together during the summer of 2009 after linking up at a party. They instantly clicked after playing together and everything came together soon after. Close friends Andre Beaudette (Drum/Percussion) and james VanDerHorst (Lead Guitar) were playing solo at the time and were stoked to link up. Pulse magazine caught up with sowflo to find out there method behind the music.”

sowFLo, an acronym for (So)uth (W)est (Flo)rida, from the “Paradise Coast” Naples, FL is a refreshing new take on contemporary Reggae music. With a distinct acoustic surf-rock/reggae sound, sowFLo sings a song of light-hearted melodies, whole-hearted lyrics and good vibrations. “We don’t make music, we create movement.”

sowFLo was conceived in 2009 when Jake Dorris (Vox & Ac Guitar) and Joe Records (Producer/Keys) linked up at a local party. The two began collaborating, and everything fell into place soon after. Already involved in the local music scene, the band was completed when close friends; Andre Beaudette (Drums & Percussion), Daniel Sahin (Lead Guitar), Christian Yacono (Bass & Vocal), and Nick Grim (Trombone) committed to the group.

The young reggae band released their self-titled debut EP in 2010, engineered by 5-time Grammy-winner Marc Lee and mastered by none other than Michael Fuller. Since then, their single "Paradise" has amassed over 130,000 views on YouTube, and is in rotation on Aruba's multiple radio stations. sowFLo made their first appearance in New York on July 15th, 2011 performing live during Red Bull sponsored 2nd Annual Surf Week at the Allegria Hotel in Long Beach.

sowFLo was recently voted #1 SouthWest Florida Reggae Band by over 25,000 online voters for the 1st Annual SPOT Magazine Awards.

Their newest 5-song EP titled "Rising", continues their working relationship with producer Joe Records, Grammy-winning engineer Marc Lee, and legendary Paul Fakhourie whose production credits include Bob Marley & The Wailers, Eric Clapton, Lauren Hill, Julian Marley, Damian Marley, Nas & Damian Marley, and Stephen Marley, among many others.

"Rising" EP is slated for world-wide release on Thursday, July 18th 2013, followed by a 30-day Midwest Tour. Upon their return sowFLo will be sharing the stage with Inner Circle, Tarrus Riley, Dean Fraser, and Rootz Underground at West Palm's Summer Jam 2013 on August 31st, and September 1st, 2013

Together, sowFLo exemplifies the message, “Everything is going to be alright,” and lifestyle of being easy.
