E.N Young

E.N Young, born Ian Allan Young, is a roots musician born and raised on the USA/Mexico border in San Diego, California. E.N started playing piano at age 6, which was the beginning of his musical life. His parents bought him a white upright Samick Piano that he still records and plays on today. At age 12, he broke his left arm and the doctor recommended some physical activity to help recover. In response, his father bought him a drum set to help with his recovery. Not only did it help physically but E.N found a passion for percussion and drums. With his new drumming talent, he reinvented himself on the piano and his musical world was revealed.

Reggae music has always been a part of E.N Young's life. Growing up with his brothers, Manuel and Mike'Chunky Roots' Marquez, reggae was around and the influence was strong. Daily, E.N and his brothers would search for the next reggae tune that caught their ears and lose themselves within the reggae vibes. Now, E.N is more involved in the reggae scene than ever imagined. Not only has he established a name for himself as an individual artist but also as a writer and producer.

E.N started performing when he was 15 years old and in 2002 he became a member of the band Stranger. As a band they put out four studio albums and toured on the West coast, including Guam and Hawaii; which led them to win the San Diego Music Award in 2009. In 2005, E.N Young met Bonita/Chula Vista locals, Roots Covenant and backed 30+ Jamaican artists. In 2010 E.N began pushing his solo career by releasing his first debut album ‘Luck & Chance No More’ under his new label, Roots Musician Records, May 1 2010. He became the first artist under RMR and began to tour as a solo artist. Along his musical path, he has played onstage with many influential reggae artists including Quino Big Mountain, Devastators, Johnny Clarke, Triston Palma, Sammy Dread, Heptones, Everton Blender, Jah Batta, Michael Palma, Sister Nancy, Edi Fitzroy, Anuhea, Tamarama, Stranger, Carlton Livingston, Don Carlos, Slightly Stoopid, the Abyssinians, Clear Conscience, Eek A Mouse, English Man, Gonzo, Tribal Seeds, Milton Henry and more.

In May 2011, E.N went into studio with Tribal Seeds to produce their new EP ‘SoundWaves.’ The EP was released in July and received world-wide attention. From Hawaii to New York, E.N Young completed a fall national tour as the opening artist for Tribal Seeds. A year after that E.N officially joined Tribal Seeds,playing keyboard, melodica and singing.

Construction of E.N’s studio, Imperial Sound Recording Studio took place in August of 2012 and was completed in January of 2013. Imperial Sound Recording Studio is the most southwest recording studio in the United States; bordering Mexico and the Pacific Ocean. It was a dream that has manifested into a professional recording studio. The doors to Imperial Sound were officially opened on January 2, 2013. As soon as the studio was ready bands began to come through the studio to record some great records. Some of those bands include: Tribal Seeds, High Tide, Hirie, K Bong, Beyond I Sight, Gonzo, Inna Vision, Clear Conscience and Without Papers. Imperial Sound Recording Studio is located near the Imperial Beach in sunny San Diego, California.

E.N Young is continuing to make sweet reggae music in his studio producing tracks for several bands and Roots Musician Records signed artists, including Gonzo, Leilani Wolfgramm, Tatanka, Mystic Roots Band, Clear Conscience, Revival, Animo, Inna Vision and Skanks Roots projects. He released his sophomore album ‘Live, Love, Stay Up’ in January of 2015 which consisted of 27 tracks including acoustic and dub versions. The album featured Tribal Seeds, Maad T-Ray (Of Tribal Seeds), Kali Navales and Jah Gumby (of Ooklah The Moc) and Gonzo. E.N recently released his newest album ‘Call On Me’ in April 2016 with it debuting at #3 on Itunes reggae charts. To E.N Young, ‘Call On Me’ is his most artistic and free album so far and he believes it will be a bridge for new reggae listeners as well as a continuing foundation for roots lovers. E.N Young's main goal continues to be, to travel the world spreading good through music and inspiring others. Sensi Trails is a high energy rock/pop/reggae power trio hailing from The Outer Banks of North Carolina. Formed in the spring of 2016 after singer songwriter Kyle Rising sought out members to start what was originally known as Kyle Rising and The Rising Tide.

Rising gave the band this title at first because the bands members were always changing like the tide. Rising later met former bassist Hale Hoback and current drummer Rachel Dickerson. The three performed live under the name Kyle Rising and The Rising Tide until one night sound man Earl at The Outer Banks Brewing Station told Rising that he had to stop leaving behind the scent of cannabis when loading into the venue. This is where the name Sensi Trails comes from.

Sensi Trails released an EP in March of 2016 titled "Prohibition" which features five original tracks.

Since then, the band has had two different bass players. One being Eli Colletti who as of June 2017 joined the Marines. The second being the current bass player Mike Rush.

The current line up consists of Kyle Rising (guitar/vocals), Rachel Dickerson (drums/vocals), and Mike Rush (bass guitar). The three work very hard together, each doing their part to make this dream a reality.

The sound of Sensi Trails is honest. Each song is sung by real voices, singing real melodies, harmonizing beautifully over real chords. But, the emotion and the energy with which they are performed is the real reason people are talking and why so many sing along.

No matter what city you live in or where you come from, Sensi Trails will guarantee you an uplifting, high energy live performance. We just ask that you come ready to party!
