Apex Vibe
Apex Vibe
Apex Vibe is a six piece Future Roots/Hip Hop/Soul group that calls the sweet sensi city of Denver, CO home. They are constantly reaching for a new place in time where dub reggae hooks up with the foundation of rock n roll and is baked at a Mile High. Known for their electric live performances, Apex Vibe creates a sound that will energize your body and have you dancing and singing to every song. Embarking on their 10th year as a band they have evolved into a diverse and powerful future roots band that brings an incredible energy to every show they play. They have shared the stage over their history with Collie Buddz, Fishbone, The SuperVillans, Shaggy, The Flobots, The Dirty Heads, Eek A Mouse, Kymani Marley, Tribal Seeds, Through The Roots, Passafire, Katchafire Grammy winners UB40, Morgan Heritage, and The Wailers and many other nationally acclaimed acts. They have released two albums, the EP "Rhythm Music" and a full length titled "Elevate". Now they are embarking on a more serious and lyrically grounded effort titled "The Afterlife" with a reformed and reenergized lineup. The new EP " The Afterlife" keeps to their roots as a band creating positive, pulsating, and hooky songs, but features a more grounded approach focusing on conscious lyrics about love, Colorado culture, and American society. It features original members Timothy Sanchez on vocals/guitar and Will Lovell on bass, and new members on vocals MC Black Rhino and Producer/lyricist Black Yoda, guitarist Pancho Tranmer, and drummer Tynan Olsen.
