But Not for You
Keyser Soze has an original ska/rocksteady sound with strong jazz and soul influences. The 7-piece ensemble was originally formed in 1998 in Reno, NV by Jammal Tarkington and Rodney Teague. With the success of their first two releases, 'Who is Keyser Soze?' (1999) and 'Revenge' (2003), the band has made a strong presence for themselves touring regularly throughout the west coast. The group's addictive sound has placed them in the position to share the stage with some of the best drawing headliners, including Michael Franti, The Wailers, Ozomatli, The English Beat, Toots & the Maytals, Steel Pulse, The Skatalites and Burning Spear. In 2010, Keyser Soze is excited for the release of their new recording, 'But Not For You'. The album features several striking vocal performances delivered by Tarkington and Teague. The single, 'Next To Me', has already received significant air-play on college radio stations and reggae radio shows across the nation. This new 11 song LP will be one of the most heavily promoted albums to date through video, file sharing sites, & relentless touring. Keyser Soze will be bringing their incomparable style & infectious live performances to summer festivals, scooter rallies, ska-fests, & professional venues across the globe.
