The Irie was formed in Chandler, Arizona by George Ruiz in 2012. However, the current incarnation has only been playing together since the end of 2019 and they’re already making waves in their new form. When drummer of The Irie, Johnny Groove moved back to his hometown of Tempe, AZ from LA he soon linked up with George Ruiz and Marcus Mapes. The trio realized they had the right fit together and quickly recorded their first single, ‘Toxic Love’. That was just the beginning.. or… the new beginning. Their EP, ‘Coming Down’ was the next natural step to take, rounding out their sound and offering more of those good vibes. Leading up to their 2nd EP “Cant Get Enough” which debuted #1 on the iTunes reggae charts. The Irie have just released their 3 singles from their upcoming album “Planet Paradise” which features Andy Chaves of Katastro and Nathan Aurora of Iya Terra and is set to drop on 06.24.22. The Irie have recently toured with Sensi Trails, Katastro, Tunnel Vision and have shared the stage with Slightly Stoopid, Collie Buddz, Sublime with Rome, The Dirty Heads, Common Kings, and many more.
