Hailing from Hawaii and now located in San Diego, CA the guys of HI Roots are bringing a new style to the mainland. Consisting of seven members HI Roots blends a unique mix of hip hop, rock, reggae and more in a dynamic live set featuring blistering lyrics from front-man/Emcee Francisco “Cizflow” Oldmen-Kam and smooth vocal harmonies of Andrei Galvez and Bucky Springmeier. Though their roots are in Hawaii, it wasn't until they all found themselves in San Diego that the band was born.
In 2014 HI Roots embarked on their first national tour joining Hawaii legends, Natty Vibes on the “2014 Summer Fun Tour." Spanning 25 states and over 10,000 miles HI Roots has begun to spread their unique blend of hip hop and reggae to a national level. Supporting major touring acts like Steel Pulse, The Dirty Heads, J-Boog, The Green, DJ Quik, Tribal Seeds, and more it is HI Roots ability to play a bill with any genre that truly sets them apart from most acts. With new music on its way, 2015 promises to be a big a year for the HI Roots boys.
HI Roots "Pretty City Lights" is available for purchase on iTunes and is currently streaming on YouTube, Spotify, and Bandcamp.
