With Xulu Prophet
With Xulu Prophet
A phenomenon of high octane groove music. Founded in 2013 by Irish guitarist/producer Oisin Daly and South Bronx native songwriter Xulu Jones ( who started the concept in 1991, in N.C.) as an acoustic 2 piece brought together by their mutual love of reggae and Jimi Hendrix. Soon they added a drummer and eventually switched to electric guitars. A unique setup allows each guitarist to switch between bass and guitar live on stage which adds a fluid dynamic to the performance. Now a power trio with Rhett Coleman on Drums, Xuluprophet has recently shared the stage with The Wailers and Passafire as well as headlining multiple festivals in Savannah and South Georgia. The groove heavy rhythmic style has its roots in Caribbean and Latin rhythms while the dual guitarist sound has shades of 60's psychedelia, 70's funk, 80's rock and 90's grunge. They have been compared to artists as varied as The Police, Jimi Hendrix, The Cure, Bad Brains and Primus. While playing mostly dance and party music, the lyrical message is both political and spiritual, drawing from their reggae roots they wish to influence the listener to reflect and better themselves and the world around them through the power of music and song. Be sure not to miss this unique and dynamic live band!
