One Sol of Redding, Calif., combines the sounds of reggae, rock, blues and funk into a relaxed sound that it has dubbed "NorCal Reggae/Rock."
The band — featuring Roman Gutierrez on guitar and vocals, Matt Wilson on bass, Derick Frank on drums and Sean Mahoney on additional percussion — is recording its second EP, which they hope to release independently in March. Gutierrez says the band hopes that the EP will show maturity and better reflect the improvisational nature of its live shows.
One Sol plays at 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, at the Caldera Tap House, 31 Water St., Ashland. It will be joined by ReLion and Lost Roots.
