INDUBIOUS
The story of INDUBIOUS is not for the faint of heart. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, INDUBIOUS was forged in the fires of pain and destruction. Evton and Skip, brothers and bandmates born with Cystic Fibrosis and convinced by doctors of their impending death from an early age, have emerged as a powerful force for change and the future of conscious music.
Based out of Southern Oregon, INDUBIOUS has released four albums over the past few years, including Fresh Leaves (2008) ,Cosmic Seed (2009) Wake The Lion ( 2010 )which was produced by EDM/Dub/Reggae pioneer Gaudi. Their latest album FROM ZERO released in stores and online worldwide July 1, 2017, features legendary guest artists including Dancehall icon Sizzla, Vaughn Benjamin (formally of Midnite and Akae Beka), and Reggae/R&B singer Zahira Soul. FROM ZERO (reaching #6 on Billboard Reggae and #8 on Itunes Charts) is a mix of conscious Dancehall and Roots Reggae with top level production. All songs were written, produced, and engineered by INDUBIOUS, and released on their own label Righteous Sound Productions. The new album spans genres including Dancehall, Roots Reggae, Electronica, and even Alt-Pop, while highlighting the conscious and uplifting messages the band has become known for. Produced and recorded entirely by Evton and Skip, it shows amazing growth in terms of their sound and production, while keeping focus on their reggae roots.
Armed with impressive instrumental skill, powerful harmonies, and an electrifying stage presence, INDUBIOUS is destined to change the face of music. They have developed a steadily rising reputation as ambassadors of the West Coast Reggae movement. Leaving audiences stunned and amazed whilst shattering any preconceived notions of genre and style, they recruit fans from all walks of life, affectionately called "Indubians." Their only choice has always been mind over matter, and time has proven that their unbending positive outlook, combined with an inspiring message of love and hope, has not only helped them overcome personal hardship (Evton received a double lung transplant in 2011 resulting in a full recovery), but catapulted their music onto the world stage with an unstoppable momentum
INDUBIOUS has performed worldwide on international tours and at many prestigious festivals including Wakarusa, Gathering Of The Vibes, Reggae On The River, Sulafest in India, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, California Roots Festival, Beloved, Britt Festivals, The Oregon Country Faire, Reggae In The Hills, Northwest World Reggae Festival, Earthdance, Gaia Festival, plus club and concert hall tours from Seattle to San Diego. They have shared the stage and toured with many influential names such as Black Uhuru, Matisyahu, Blondie, Michael Franti, Stephen Marley, Rebelution, Junior Reid, and Pato Banton, to name a few.
The band and their legion of fans have adopted the motto “Live Indubiously,” which means living life without doubt or fear, and with faith in the fact that we are all here for a reason. “Our gift is music,” says Indubious, “and our mission is to reconnect the people of the world with rightful living. We wish to speak the truth in an effort to inspire others to do the same, to raise the positive vibrations of our planet, and to help others express the true loving nature within us all.”

Zahira
Zahira is a cultured renaissance woman whose pure, powerful, and resonant voice has received rave reviews from fans and critics around the world. Her success as an internationally known vocalist, songwriter, and musician inspires people to be strong and positive, and she faces life every day with a special energy that lights up each stage she performs on. Zahira’s original music combines elements of Soul, Pop, Reggae, Hip-Hop and Electronica. She can be seen performing with her solo live-electronic project and with her band, or as a guest vocalist with Oregon Reggae Rootstronica group Indubious, who also featured Zahira on their track “Root Down” from their album From Zero.

With a style and tone described as a blend of vocalists such as Lauryn Hill, Madonna and Erykah Badu, this inspirational songstress completed her first limited-edition EP in 2011. She released the singles “Summertime” and “Easy Days” in 2013, and in the spring of 2014 Zahira released Rise Up, her first full-length album. In the winter of 2016 she released the single “Ascension,” an anthem for revolution beyond genre that is a unique concoction of Soul, Rock and EDM driven by deep bass and passionate vocals. Her latest single “Stand Strong” will be released September 8, 2017, and will be followed with a music video.

No stranger to the music industry, Zahira has worked with several globally renowned artists including Luciano, KRS-One, Bibi McGill, Yami Bolo, Red Fox, Indubious, Rocker-T, Jah Levi and Sol Seed. Some producers and engineers she has worked with include Don One, Vince DiLorenzo, Solji Hamilton, Jaya Raise and Janaka. Additionally, Zahira has played to crowds at several festivals and places around the world including California, Oregon, Colorado, Florida, Canada, Israel, the Dominican Republic, Bali and Thailand, taking fans on a truly uplifting musical journey.

Zahira was born and raised in Canada, and at a young age embraced music and became a gospel choir soprano. Within a few years her family moved to the USA, where she became more focused on refining her natural talents, and realized that she was bound for a career in the arts. As a teenager she became the front-woman of Soul Union, her first band, and ever since she has pursued her career as a singer, songwriter and bandleader. She studied Jazz Vocals and Performance at Green Mountain College, and for many years has independently trained in North Indian Classical Vocals, Sound Healing, Performance, Dance and West African Drumming. Aside from her native English, she has written and performs songs in Hebrew, Sanskrit, Arabic, Spanish, French, Michif and indigenous languages to share her message with the world. Being part indigenous (Metis / Algonquin) Zahira utilizes her music to promote healing and empowerment in response to human and environmental rights.

Zahira debuted in the early 2000s with jazz influenced soul / reggae material and expanded into an experimental neo-soul, reggae, electronic fusion artist as of 2015. Besides performing, Zahira has also written songs for various films & television commercials. This devoted diva’s voice ranges from alto to a high soprano, and she uses it as a dynamic instrument in a rich and powerful way. Her unconventional, eclectic style and positive lyrics have made a unique and powerful impact upon her listeners. Zahira radiates pure light and positive energy on stage and brings her audience on a journey beyond time and space.

“Better not run and hide from it, better take the time and just work on it.” -Zahira
