Weege & 880 South unveils “Always Something” music video

Denver-based singer-songwriter Weege is recently back in action following over a decade-long hiatus from the music industry. Originating in a band called 880 South circa 2004, Weege toured with the greatest in the reggae rock realm at the time — Iration, Rebelution, even helped Slightly Stoopid break into the Bay Area market! But, life happens. Weege’s music career took a backseat around 2007 in order to accommodate real life: raising a family, working a wage, being financially responsible. Yet, music never left his heart.

After losing his bakery to COVID-19, Weege rejoined the music industry with veracity, releasing 23 songs over the past six months!

Teaming with old friends, now in Colorado, Weege reanimated his 880 South crew, with friends Greg Medeiros (of 880 South, Thrive), Mark LeBlanc Jr. and Nick Wimer (of Project 432). Medeiros joins Weege on bass and drums in his latest release “Always Something”, a single further featuring The Expendables’ Raul Bianchi and Adam Patterson — the latter mixing it all together. If you’re a fan of early Michael Franti, this bluesy, groovy, R&B-meets-a-little-reggae track is right up your alley!

The video for “Always Something” is hot off the virtual presses, adding imagery to its attitude. Breaking up with a significant other is never easy, even if the end was inevitable. Weege & 880 South portrays this parting in a darkly elegant fashion, as a graceful ballerina glides down desolate city streets. It’s hauntingly beautiful to see her go. But, she had to go. “The truth will make you sober,” Weege chants, sitting in front of a colorful tapestry, almost meditative in his stoicism.

Now that the music video for “Always Something” is live to the public, Weege & 880 South are excited to unveil two more singles in February titled “Sorry It Can’t Wait” and “Signs”, leading up to an eventual full-length release in early summer. Alluding to a stockpile of over 70 songs in the works, Weege hopes that he can start taking his music on the road around summertime. For more information on Weege & 880 South, visit the links below.

Fantastic fuckin song and video, as is the usual with this dude. Weirdly enough, I tend to listen to reggae’ish music more in the Winter than in the Summer, and this is hitting all the right spots.

Welcome back!
How exciting! This story is extremely inspiring! Paired with its visual poetry aka video.
Captures the mood perfectly, as the lyrics are relatable. And bittersweet.

Definitely would pop Wedge & 880 on while on a bike ride.

Phenomenal writing, too. Descriptive and left me wanting to read more ๐Ÿค˜โœจ
Excited to see whats next for them!
