Elephant Convoy
formed in Wilmington, North Carolina in 2013 originally as
an outlet for brothers Javier and Daniel Rodriguez and close friend Graham
Rattray to connect over and collaborate within the genre they love: roots
reggae. Their garage jam sessions led to playing house parties, which
eventually led to gigs at small local venues and bars throughout North
Carolina.

The addition of new members to the band in 2014 helped solidify the big
instrumental sound they are known for today and resulted in their debut
album Foundation, along with regional tours up and down the East Coast.
During this period of time, Elephant Convoy shared the stage with acts such
as Collie Buddz, The Expendables, The Wailers, The Movement, Through The
Roots & more. Venue highlights for the Convoy include playing at the
coveted Irie Vibes Music Festival in Long Creek, South Carolina and the
House of Blues in Myrtle Beach.

The band’s lineup currently consists of Javier Rodriguez (Vocals/Rhythm
Guitar), Daniel Rodriguez (Drums), Graham Rattray (Bass), Michael Eakins
(Vocals/Lead Guitar), and Patrick Mosca (Keys). The band is currently
working with prized producer Joel Aloise from Zion Within Productions and
the award-wining studio Hourglass Studios on their second album that is due
for release Summer ’17.

While the band’s biggest influence remains the roots reggae genre that
derived from Jamaica decades earlier, they also draw inspiration from the
dancehall, electronic, and hip hop genres to create their authentically
modern reggae sound.

As a diverse group of individuals, the band’s vision has always been to use
music to create and preserve oneness between people from all walks of life.
Their coastal attitude and socially conscious mindset show in their music
through their use of heavy bass, driving melodies, and thought-provoking
lyrics.

There’s nothing stopping this band from spreading their music and message
to reggae music community and beyond.
