Hailing from Northern California, Pacific Soundrise is a reggae/rock band formed from identical twin brothers Shaun Read (bass) and Spencer Read (drums) originally from Herb In Movement. Herb In Movement had played shows a few times with a similar band called Bellyfull, but never knew what impact that would later have.

       Herb In Movement went on hiatus due to Charles Hurley's ( singer/guitarist of Herb In Movement) 3-year old son being diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a very serious form of brain cancer. During that time Shaun and Spencer had heard Bellyfull were no more. They quickly recruited Skip Hill (Vocals/Guitar) to keep things moving. With Charles no longer in the band, they opted on changing the name to Pacific Soundrise but still kept the same sound. They added lead guitarist Justin Gravesen (previously ADD/C) to fill out the sound and add that extra layer that made Pacific Soundrise who they are today.  

       Together Pacific Soundrise brought different influences and sounds to create a dynamic style of reggae and rock that is uniquely blended for an original sound.Members of Pacific Soundrise developed a strong chemistry which enabled them to write original songs not only at a fast pace, but songs that were complex,heartfelt, and full of energy. 

       Pacific Soundrise is quickly becoming a big part of the California music scene, with their sights set on the rest of the world.
