Based out of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Innastate is gaining attention for their unique brand of reggae and rock that is modern yet honors their indigenous heritage, musical roots and love of music. The band believes in the power of music to connect people, offering heartfelt songs that reflect on the human experience, spirituality and environmental issues. Innastate is formed around the core of Adrian Wall of Jemez Pueblo (guitar/vocal), Rylan Kabotie of Santa Clara Pueblo/Jicarilla Apache (bass/vocal), Lawrence Bailon of Santa Clara Pueblo/Kewa Pueblo (drums), Karlo Johnson of Isleta Pueblo (guitar). Innasate’s lineup expands for live performances, utilizing the talents of Romeo Alonzo (alto sax) and MC T-Bone (trombone) and Mikey Jaramillo (percussionist). The band released their debut self-titled EP in April of 2015 to wide acclaim and a growing fan base that earned the group Artist of the Month by RockwiredMagazine.com and the 2016 Rockwired Reader’s poll award for Best Performance by an American Indian/First Nations Band or Artist. In 2016 Innastate was nominated for “Best Reggae Song” by the New Mexico Music Awards. Crafted after a rigorous live performance schedule after the first release, the band’s evolving sound and songwriting is showcased on their debut full length CD “Verde”, released September 2018.
