IRIE TIME® is a band of culturally-diverse musicians based in Houston, Texas, performing Caribbean reggae and soca music. Irie (pronounced 'eye-ree') is a Jamaican patois word that means 'feeling great', and IRIE TIME's music has been described as "a blend of reggae, soca and dub grooves that is just about as refreshing as a bottle of Ting grapefruit soda on a sweltering Trenchtown summer day." [The Houston Press] While performing primarily throughout the Texas-Louisiana region, IRIE TIME has traveled as far away as Detroit, Tucson and Miami promoting their releases Stateside, and has performed shows in a number of European cities. Their highly-anticipated new CD, In Another Time, has now been completed and features more new songs from the group. The CD also includes exciting Dub versions on the same disc, as well as a Spanish mix, and is expected to draw widespread attention to the band's unique combination of reggae, jazz, soca and dub.
