“Headshine’s rise from bonfires and beer to the House of Blues with legendary acts can be summed up by one piece of advice…” The World Famous KROQ. New record is coming in summer 2014. One of the new songs “Diamond in the Sun” co-written by RAS, Big B and Jim Perkins is now featured on Big B’s new album “Fools Gold” in stores nationwide with the Dirty Heads, P!nk, Slightly Stoopid and more. You can download the new single “One Heart” by Headshine free on Facebook.
With a touch of reggae and California sunshine, the Huntington Beach singer/songwriter has cultivated a surfer/acoustic sound called Headshine; and it’s what happens when something comes alive inside and begins to radiate. One moment you’re singing along and the next thing you know you’re at a show rockin’ a shaker, or crowd surfing with a bunch of good friends. Listen to the music and your head will shine.
The debut record “Better Things” by Headshine caught the attention of CBS radio. “Headshine, create music which conjures up these quintessential California moments with warm-bodied acoustics, Bob Marley-inspired reggae riffs, persuasive percussion, and a fearless fader scratching that gives their sound an understated edge. Much like the typical native Californian, Headshine is a musical mosaic of melodies effortlessly melting into each other, supported by luminous lyrics prompting the listeners towards self-compassion and positive action. This sound transmuted into feeling is the kind of experience that has prompted many a youthful daydreamer into finding their own dreams with the peaceful churn of the Pacific Ocean as their soundtrack.” -KROQ

Headshine has recently opened tour dates for Ziggy Marley, Jamaican reggae-legends The Wailers, The English Beat, Natty Vibes and Sashamon from Hawaii, Al Anderson’s Original Wailers, pop-punk’s Less Than Jake, the national rock band Lit and The Supervillians.
