To the Ends of the Earth is a sonic expedition that shatters genre barriers and aims to guide listeners towards anthemic bliss. It stands as the band’s fourth full-length independent album, and was recorded in Tampa and New York. THA, featuring David New (lead vocals, guitar), Chris Powers (bass), Dave Johnson (baritone and tenor saxophone), Cody Moore (keyboards), Matt Poynter (drums, vocals), and Justino Walker (guitar), call St. Petersburg, FL home; they have mined an expansive well of local and global influences to sharpen their signature style on this record.

New describes the sound best as, “an ethereal journey to the ends of the earth,” after which the album was named. The band, along with producers Jackson Hoffman and Ryder Stuart, set out to create a timeless record, remembering back to their early days of informal jam sessions. “It helped us come to terms with who we are as a band, defining our sound. We weren’t trying to sound like anything but ourselves,” says New. To the Ends of the Earth is available online now.

The Ellameno Beat is a band of twenty-somethings hailing from Jensen Beach, Florida. Founded and produced by lead singer Reggie Froom, the group channels an original progressive reggae / roots sound and presence that is the product of a life-long passion for soulful expression through music and the ocean. The band also includes James Rosenblit on drums, Dylon Hixon (bass), and Walker Brantingham on (keys). Their latest release is 2017’s Surface.
