DRY REEF is a group dedicated to establishing a wave of high-energy, uplifting music. Rooted in the rock/reggae sound that put them on the map, the young group incorporates inflections of indie-surf rock and electronic post-rock forming a refreshing, organic sound you cannot ignore. These mid 20’s musicians are rapidly evolving from dreamers to decision-leaders in the industry.

Dry Reef’s 2018 ‘Alright Revival EP’ started the year with six genre defying songs followed by a 30+ show tour spanning the east coast and beyond to Nashville and Knoxville. The EP received high praise being featured in multiple publications like ‘Seaside Chats’ with Kenneth Arthur (Rolling Stone journalist). After relentless touring, Dry Reef recorded their debut full length album ‘Daychange’ at Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Soundworks. Following the fall 2018 release, ‘Daychange’ was widely well received amongst publications across the country including Top Shelf Reggae and The HummingByrd. Multiple tracks from the album were featured on Philadelphia’s premiere iHeartRadio station RADIO 104.5 on a weekly basis. The band is lined up for extensive touring in 2019 spanning to over 20 states.
