Get To Know "Outpost"
From humble beginnings in a dilapidated home in southeast Portland, Outpost is forging a new direction for reggae music in the Northwest. This independent five-member band, is pushing musical boundaries by blending the dancing grooves of reggae, ska and funk with the fire of underground hip hop. Outpost is dedicated to producing upbeat music with a message of pure positivity. Since 2006, Outpost has been producing music that's heated up dance floors all the way down the West Coast. Their energetic live performances can be described as nothing less than a smile induced dance party. Outpost has performed at numerous outdoor festivals throughout the summer, including their own free festival, the Outpost Block Party. Started in 2006, this annual neighborhood festival celebrates the amazing family of Outpost fans. With new opportunities arising almost daily, Outpost has been blessed to share the stage with many talented and popular musicians, including Anthony B, SOJA, Tribal Seeds, and John Brown's Body. With the release of their new album "The Wreckoning" Outpost is poised to take their music to the next level. The album is an arsenal of lyrical firebombs, irie grooves, and top notch production that are the band's best yet. The highly anticipated new hotness, also known as "The Wreckoning," drops on April 22nd. The message is simple... Love and Light. Peace and Positivity. Consciousness and Responsibility. Good Vibrations.
