The Movement has been winning the hearts and minds of alternative reggae fans since their inception in Columbia, SC in 2003. Drawing inspiration from Sublime, 311, Slightly Stoopid, and John Brown’s Body, they’ve made a name for themselves as reggae shapeshifters with a foundation of heavy drum and bass. Today, the band consists of founding member, lead vocalist, and guitarist Joshua Swain; bassist Jason Schmidt; drummer Gary Jackson; and keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Matt Goodwin. Their seventh studio album, Ways Of The World (2019) debuted at #1 in the Billboard Reggae Chart and remained in the Billboard Reggae Top 10 for more than 40 consecutive weeks. The band’s eighth studio album, Always With Me, was released July 29, 2022 on the band’s R4RE Records imprint. It explores new musical territory while staying true to their champion sound. Featuring collaborations from their influencers-turned-peers, Slightly Stoopid, Iration, and Clinton Fearon, and contemporaries HIRIE and Soom T, for The Movement, the only path is forward, pushing the boundaries and the future of reggae.

Fronted by David Wimbish, The Collection hails from North Carolina. Impressively, the band logged thousands of miles on the road, generated millions of streams, and earned praise from American Songwriter, Glide, Parade, and more all before signing to Nettwerk. With three full-length releases, three Eps, and a number of singles in their repertoire, the band’s extensive catalog is complimented by their robust and raucous live show that has built a devout fanbase. The Collection has toured with The Oh Hellos, RIPE, Tall Heights, and Nettwerk’s own Sammy Rae & The Friends.

The Ries Brothers (pronounced “Rees”), a duo from St. Petersburg, FL, blend rock, blues, jam, funk, and reggae into a soulful-sophisticated sound. Older brother Charlie (27) sings lead vocals while simultaneously playing drums and keyboard bass, giving the band its unique and full sound. Younger brother Kevin Jordan (24) completes the band’s “sonic creativity” on guitar, ukulele, and melodica and provides background vocals. The band started playing the Florida bar circuit as young teenagers where they were discovered by the band Chicago and taken out on two regional tours, prompting them to leave school and focus on music full time.
