These days Burnt is performing as a 3-piece rock-steady reggae group. This current line-up, after 6 years of tours up and down the West Coast (from TJ to Victoria BC), has refined the sound down to raw throat, bassheavy soul, and a heartbeat groove for your dancing pleasure.
Here's some stuff people have said about us:
"This is a group that stands for everything good and righteous in our world. From spirit and social awareness to content and production...The road is foggy. And Burnt marches on. Check it. And be renewed." -S. Miller Berlin, Germany
"It's reggae night. The first artist is Burnt, a reggae band from the Bay Area. The set was performed by the lead singer and his guitar with no backup band this time. His voice was powerful and soft. He sang songs with familiar themes to the reggae crowd. Freedom, love and revolution peppered the stories he sang." Kyle Osborne - Glendale News Press
Burnt manages to capture the best of every genre from the underground, from reggae to punk, hip hop to ska, and much more. . . For every time I hear Burnt, the world sucks a little less. - Gina Smith from Kingston, Washington
"Burnt ended the show with its original sound of roots fusion mixing everything from ska to hip hop and old school reggae into its set. The band lit up the evening resulting in lots of dance-hall dancing well into the dark." From Bands Rock for Clean Water Wildcoast.net
"Burnt's music calls to the American youth to dispose of the status quo and establish some alternative, a way of life more natural and righteous. Songs are politically charged, confronting social and environmental issues head on." Katie Westfall - Surfshot Magazine - Feb. 07
"Thank you, and all of BURNT, for representing a dying breed in the music world, and society in general. And for just being so fucking cool!!" Marc from California
"Burnt, on behalf on ASUCI and KUCI, we'd all like to send our gratitude and thanks for coming to play (UCI Reggaefest) a 2nd time. You really kicked out the jams and showed us the ROCK side of Roots Rock Reggae
along with some sweet dub vibration. I would not be surprised if we do ask for you to play again in the near future."
from DJ Big Jim, KUCI 88.9FM Irvine
