November is finally here and what better way to start a fresh month off than with a fresh music video? Without further delay we have for you the video premier of “Warrior” by Adwela & The Uprising (Fredericksburg, VA). Tour starts tomorrow in Tennessee! Come experience The Uprising!

Adwela & The Uprising is a national touring and award winning eight-piece reggae band created and based out of Fredericksburg, Virginia. The music they create is the epitome of roots-conscious rock music that spreads truth, soul stirring lyrics, and gives you no choice but to come to a new overstanding about the world we live in, who we are, and who we aspire to be. 

   Adwela & The Uprising was named Best New Artist in 2015 by the Virginia Reggae Awards. They have blossomed by traveling up and down the East and West coasts of the United States sharing their music and have international plans in the works. Their music has been embraced by many that appreciate the unique and authentic sound true to the heart of reggae.

   Adwela & The Uprising has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many of the very artists that inspired and influenced them. This list includes legendary reggae artists such as The WailersZiggy MarleyThird World, New Kingston, Akea Beka (Midnite), Tarrus Riley, Culture, and Afroman. Their musical influences also include icons such as Peter Tosh, Jacob Miller, Bob Marley, Gregory Isaacs, Burning Spear, and many more. 

   Their first album titled, “The Road Less Traveled”, released in March of 2017 and charted at #28 on the iTunes Reggae Album Charts. Each song on the album enlightens the minds with truth. Songs such as “Riot” and “Shackles and Bondage” tell the story of the struggle that lies in all of us and what is faced day to day in the world we perceptively live in. The songs, “Same Old Same” and “The Fight”, offer a glimpse into the experiences Adwela Dawes has encountered over the years.
