Hailing from San Diego, California, Twisted Relatives encompasses the creativity of a well driven orchestra of a Reggae-RnB act. Twisted Relatives was founded in 2014, by John Laue, the talented drummer who has worked alongside many reggae acts, Eric Castaneda, the high powered soulful vocalist who established himself in the reggae community, Steven Stotelmyre, the acclaimed heavy hitting bass man, and Sergio Lau Gonzalez, the melodic keyboard player who has worked with the legends. Later, the prodigy lead guitarist Stevie Wagner joined the group which polished the group’s already seasoned musicians. The reggae community in San Diego is a thriving and close niche group, which in turn, created opportunities and paved the way for Twisted Relatives to come together and simply put their creatives juices at the fore front to develop a premier and inspiring sound. Twisted Relatives takes influences from Roots Reggae, Blues, RnB, Rock, and Electronica and creates a distinct universal energy for all ears to listen to.
Twisted Relatives offers a refreshing story telling sound which will ultimately speak for itself. The creation that ultimately lands in your music player, is a profound and utter pleasure to all audiences and is a “must have” on your rotation. The band is a product of their environment, which promises to deliver music lovers a tremendous live adventure. Collectively, they have shared the stage with acclaimed artists such as Groundation, The Dirty Heads, SOJA, Iration, The Wailers, Pato Banton, The English Beat, The Abyssinians, Don Carlos, Midnite, John Brown’s Body and many more.
Their debut E.P Sacred State of Mind, is now available on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Soundcloud, Rhapsody, Bandcamp etc.
