Luke Kinney now officially signed with Rest Easy Records
Over the last couple months we’ve been spending sometime in the studio with Something Collective in an effort to get their first album recorded. The energy in the studio has been high and the music is feeling great. You can expect the same great vibe from the CD as you would from seeing them perform. The album will be available sometime after the leaves start changing colors.
Check out this new song from Luke Kinney guaranteed to put a smile on your face. The song features the voices of two lovely, local Santa Cruz ladies, some good vibes and best of all you get to name your own price. Its available for download on our Bandcamp store. We hope this helps you to kick off the summer right.
It’s been a little over a year since Luke Kinney’s self titled EP was released. In that time he has been keeping busy playing shows and writing music both as part of Something Collective and on his own. Now he’s back in the studio, on his way to recording and releasing a full length album.
February 16th marked the first day of studio production as he laid down 5 songs in true Luke Kinney style. The album promises to have the same live; “sitting in the same room” kind of feeling with simple harmonies and catchy guitar lines. Like the EP, this album will touch many different genres but will draw its core strength from folk. The variety adds a little something for everybody. One track even features spoken word from Matthew Mercure.
There is no official release date yet but we hope to have the album out by late spring/early summer, just in time for chilling on the beach or barbequing in the back yard.
Something Collective is a ten piece Reggae/Jazz fusion project hailing out of Santa Cruz CA. Something Collectives music is a reflection of their influences, mostly drawing its core strength in roots reggae. Something Collective started in November 2011 and is currently working on their anticipated self titled EP being released July of this summer. Most of the songs are written by Luke Kinney (vocals and guitar) and posses a very spiritual aspect and dynamic. Luke and the collective carry on the vision and vibes of Bob Marley with songs of liberation, justice, equality and love. Something Collective is an exciting poly-rhythmic experience that draws people together making them move their bodies, leaving them wanting for more. Beyond the music Something Collective is a family and enjoys life to the fullest, this carries onto the stage and creates a show unlikely to forget. If your a fan of positive vibrations and than make sure you check out Something Collective
