DC-natives Soja premiered the live performance video of their single I Believe featuring Michael Franti and Nahko live from Red Rocks on Conan O’Brien’s Team Coco recently. The track is off the band’s new album Amid The Noise And Haste which was released on August 12 2014 via ATO Records.
The new album debuted at Number 20 on Billboard’s Top 20 Charts, Number Three on iTunes Top Albums Chart, Number One album on iTunes Reggae Charts and had four songs in the Top 10 iTunes Reggae Charts including the Number One spot. You can order Amid The Noise And Haste now via the band’s website as well as iTunes.
“It’s incredible to put everything you got into an album and have fans respond the way they are,” says lead singer/songwriter/guitarist Jacob Hemphill. “The point of the album is reconnecting people to the power inside themselves, getting them to fall back in love with life again. Look around, take a deep breath. All the answers are there.”
Amid The Noise And Haste was produced by multiple Grammy award winning Jamaican producer Supa Dups (Bruno Mars, Eminem, Rihanna, John Legend). It is the follow up to critically acclaimed Strength To Survive which debuted in the Billboard Top 40. Amid The Noise And Haste features special guests including Michael Franti, Damian Marley and Collie Buddz.
Soja originally formed by a group of friends while still in middle school and has built a massive, dedicated fan base around the world since. In the years following, Soja has sold more than 250,000 albums, headlined shows in over 20 countries around the world, generated over 3.5 million Facebook fans and 200+ million YouTube views. The band has toured with Dave Matthews Band, Incubus, 311 and appeared at major festivals including Bonnaroo where they attract an almost Grateful Dead-like international fan base along the way with caravans of diehards following them from city to city.
