Formed in 2008 and based out of Santa Cruz, California, Thrive has been pumping out hit after hit since their very first full debut album titled Gratitude Attitude which released and rocked the scene in 2010. The relatively new group turned many heads and perked up many ears since with their debut album which reached number four on the iTunes Reggae charts. The latest studio single titled “Broken” featuring the female superstar Hirie was released April 15, 2014 and received great reactions by everyone here at Top Shelf Reggae.
Just finishing up their 2014 Spring Cleaning Tour with Rome, Stick Figure, Collie Buddz, Stranger, The Expendables and Katchafire, the five piece ensemble will be packing up their bags once again and hitting the road to begin their Summer Tour 2014 which kicks off shortly on June 26, 2014 at the Livermore Pine Street Bar with Indubious. The band will be performing mostly in the western half of the United States, but will be shooting directly across the states on their last day of the tour to perform at the 2014 California Roots Carolina Session on September 13, 2014.
