Award-winning roots reggae band, Adwela & the Uprising is a nationally touring band from Virginia. Adwela’s soul stirring lyrics and unique sound led Adwela & the Uprising to be named Best New Artist in 2015 by Virginia Reggae. They have since blossomed with several national tours under their belt. Adwela & the Uprising has had the honor of playing with legendary reggae artist, Ziggy Marley, and had the pleasure of sharing the Chesapeake Reggae Festival stage with Johnny Osbourne and Winston Jarrett.
Their highly anticipated first album “The Road Less Traveled” was released March 2017, charting at #28 on the iTunes reggae album charts while spending three weeks on the top 100 charts. Adwela & the Uprising bring such a unique sound they most certainly stand out in their own right. Musical influences stem from icons such as Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Burning Spear, Jacob Miller, Damian Marley, just to name a few. Adwela & the Uprising continue to grow a faithful following with each performance and tour.
