Sensi Trails 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Since 2016, Sensi Trails has been playfully blurring the lines between Cali reggae, surf, and psychedelic rock. After releasing a 5 song EP, lead singer and guitarist Kyle Rising decided to relocate from Outerbanks North Carolina, to San Diego California. He soon reconnected with E.N Young, whom he met when Tribal Seeds was on tour in NC. After recording and releasing the new single Just Livin' featuring Kbong of Stick Figure, he met drummer Jordan Starke and bassist/vocalist Kaya Hall. Adding a new layer of lush sound, they were soon joined by keyboardist Mike Root.

After dropping out of college and moving to Outerbanks, Kyle performed the open mic circuit and eventually found like-minded musicians, with whom he formed Sensi Trails. Feeling the need for growth following the EP, he hopped in the tour van on a solo journey out west. Desiring a fresh chapter of energy and sounds for Sensi Trails, Kyle hit Imperial Sound Studios in San Diego to record new material for a follow up album.

Drummer Jordan Starke came from a background of rock and metal. But he found reggae when he was just 16 years old, seeing Mike Pinto on tour in his hometown of Colorado Springs. Bassist Kaya Hall first found music in the form of a Kiss album in his fathers record collection. When his parents took him to a Slightly Stoopid concert, he fell in love with the sound and community that reggae created.  He has been the lead vocalist and guitar player in the popular San Diego roots-reggae band Strictly Skunk for over six years. And rounding things out, keyboardist Mike Root came from classical training, followed by jazz. However, in his heart he was always a beach bum from Charleston SC who loved reggae and riding waves.

All four musicians originated from different cities, came from different backgrounds, and found music through different avenues and styles. But it was their passion for music, and their love of reggae that brought them together. Honoring the sounds that inspired them, while mixing in fresh themes and styles, Sensi Trails is finishing their debut album. Combining thunderous bass, on-point rhythm, soulful lyrics, and tasty melodies – Sensi Trails will draw you in and leave you wanting more. With a chemistry of catchy songs and infectious vibes, they travel the open road, on a quest to play and spread their music to the world.
