Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, the six piece "Reggae / Rap / Rock" fusion, Shrub, has been rapidly gaining momentum and building a solid national fanbase since being voted by readers as High Times Magazine Unsigned Band of the Month (Sept 2010).
Shrub is currently recording a new album with acclaimed producer, Sylvia Massy (Tool, Prince, Johnny Cash, etc). The new album features guest appearances by: C-Money from Slightly Stoopid, Dubmatix, and Kimberly Freeman from One-Eyed Doll. The album is set to be released late Spring 2013.
Shrub is also currently working with legendary hip-hop artist/producer, Blueprint from Rhymesayers Entertainment, on an EP set to be released Summer 2013.
Their music garners comparisons to artists like: Sublime, Cypress Hill, The Dirty Heads, Atmosphere, Gym Class Heroes, and G. Love, yet maintains an innately unique and raw sound all their own.
Shrub has shared the stage with: Collie Buddz, Rebelution, Yellowman, Kottonmouth Kings, Gov't Mule, Hed PE, Badfish, Yonder Mountain String Band, Ballyhoo!, ekoostik hookah, Zach Deputy, Mighty Diamonds, Tribal Seeds, The Young Dubliners, Passafire, Seedless, Micah Brown, Fortunate Youth, Spiritual Rez, Tomorrow's Bad Seeds, Echo Movement, Best Coast, Dinosaur Jr, The Dirty Projectors, Grizzly Bear, Tennis, and many more.
