E.N Young
E.N Young
E.N Young is a roots musician born and raised on the USA/Mexico border in San Diego, California. E.N started playing piano at age 6, which was the beginning of his musical life. His parents bought him a white upright Samick Piano that he still records and plays on today. At age 12, he broke his left arm and the doctor recommended some physical activity to help recover. In response, his father bought him a drum set to help with his recovery. Not only did it help physically but E.N found a passion for percussion and drums. With his new drumming talent, he reinvented himself on the piano and his musical world was revealed.

Reggae music has always been a part of E.N Young's life. Growing up with his brothers, Manuel and Mike'Chunky Roots' Marquez, reggae was around and the influence was strong. Daily, E.N and his brothers would search for the next reggae tune that caught their ears and lose themselves within the reggae vibes. Now, E.N is more involved in the reggae scene than ever imagined. Not only has he established a name for himself as an individual artist but also as a writer and producer.

E.N started performing when he was 15 years old and in 2002 he became a member of the band Stranger. As a band they put out four studio albums and toured on the West coast, including Guam and Hawaii; which led them to win the San Diego Music Award in 2009. In 2005, E.N Young met Bonita/Chula Vista locals, Roots Covenant. They played the strongest and most authentic roots reggae sound on the West coast and backed 30+ Jamaican artists. In 2010 E.N began pushing his solo career by releasing his first debut album ‘Luck & Chance No More’ under his new label, Roots Musician Records; he became the first artist under RMR and began to tour as a solo artist. Along his musical path, he has played onstage with many influential reggae artists including Quino Big Mountain, Devastators, Johnny Clarke, Triston Palma, Sammy Dread, Heptones, Everton Blender, Jah Batta, Michael Palma, Sister Nancy, Edi Fitzroy, Anuhea, Tamarama, Stranger, Carlton Livingston, Don Carlos, Slightly Stoopid, the Abyssinians, Clear Conscience, Eek A Mouse, English Man, Gonzo, Tribal Seeds, Milton Henry and more.

In May 2011, E.N went into studio with Tribal Seeds to produce their new EP ‘SoundWaves.’ The EP was released in July and received world-wide attention. From Hawaii to New York, E.N Young completed a fall national tour as the opening artist for Tribal Seeds. A year after that E.N officially joined Tribal Seeds,playing keyboard, melodica and singing.

Construction of E.N’s studio, Imperial Sound Recording Studio took place in August of 2012 and was completed in January of 2013. Imperial Sound is the most southwest recording studio in the United States; bordering Mexico and the Pacific Ocean. It was a dream that has manifested into a professional recording studio. The doors to Imperial Sound were officially opened on January 2, 2013. As soon as the studio was ready bands began to come through the studio to record some great records. Some of those bands include: Tribal Seeds, High Tide, HIRIE, K Bong, Beyond I Sight, Gonzo, Inna Vision, Clear Conscience and Without Papers. Imperial Sound Recording Studio is located near the Imperial Beach in sunny San Diego, California.

E.N Young is continuing to produce sweet reggae music in his imperial sound recording studio, producing tracks for several bands and artists. He released his 4th studio album ‘Forest Wilderness’ in May of 2018 which consisted of 9 tracks including some big features from the reggae legend Half Pint, Peetah Morgan of grammy award winning Morgan Heritage, Kelissa from the new Jamaican roots revival movement and fellow Roots Musician Records recording artist Inna Vision from Maui. This is his most artistic and free album so far and he believes it will be a bridge for new reggae listeners as well as a continuing foundation for roots lovers. E.N Young's main goal continues to be, to travel the world spreading good through music and inspire others.
Sensi Trails
Sensi Trails
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.
