Never likely to fit in the box, HIRIE’s approach to creating and experimenting with reggae music is worth buying into.
As her debut album, self- titled HIRIE, made clear, the newest female sensation to the West Coast reggae scene was out to make waves with an unshakable passion for writing music and performing. HIRIE’s debut single, “Sensi Boy”, which released in July of 2013, has seen over 345,000 YouTube plays.
HIRIE gained much exposure at the start of her career by touring with America’s top independent rock/reggae band, Tribal Seeds. The news of HIRIE, and her refreshingly skilled and seasoned band spread much like wildfire gaining the attention of major reggae festival, California Roots as well as major touring bands: Ziggy Marley, Steel Pulse, Matisyahu, The Dirty Heads, J Boog, The Green, Sly & Robbie, Pato Banton, Third World, Stick Figure and Fortunate Youth.
