Snuggling cosily somewhere between reggae and folk rock, Kansas based Streetlevel Uprising comprises the musical interests of Jay Canter, and his debut thirteen track album Dusk to Dawn Revolution is an explosion of socially conscious lyrics and spreading a message best summed up as a celebration of life.
“I feel the need to remind myself, and the listener that even though we talk about a lot of messed up stuff, that’s not all life is about. There are some beautiful things,” he says.
With free verse lyrics and musical composition similar to Jack Johnson, Dusk to Dawn Revolution is the kind of album that grows on you the more you listen, strongly engaging the listener with a unified spirituality and compassionate sense of justice.
Staying true to the inner truth with Burn , there’s a modest streak of finding the best of each situation, and increasing the deluxe, cruisy funk in Life is Beauty, you get the feel Streetlevel Uprising really have a lot of lovely words to share with the world.
A Prayer From Anywhere has a slight tinge that sparks a faint memory of groovin’ away to the likes of Nicky Bomba, and Who Feels It is definitely my pick, stylistically similar to Bob Marley and simply seeping with a delightfully heart capturing advocate for peace.
Coupling some groove filled tunes with passionate lyrics, StreetLevel Uprising and Dusk to Dawn Revolution is a one of those albums that you put on when you’re in need for a double dose of inspiration. And let’s face it, who doesn’t need that every now and then? Or every day, even. You can never have too much inspiration in my opinion, so jump on to their sites and join StreetLevel Uprising in their quest for peace, unity and a downright enticing collection of groove-filled tunes.
