Dub Nation returns to festival stages this summer supporting the release of its long-awaited album Rising Force for Change and renews its musical vows after a very long hiatus. 

Producer and bassist of Dub Nation, Frank “Fantom” Caruso, after years of managing and touring with the likes of Motown legends, The Temptations, has reincarnated Dub Nation with their third musical effort.

The biggest transformation of the Dub Nation sound would undoubtedly be that of new lead singer GC Cameron.  Cameron is a Motown legend who goes all the way back to the 1970’s as an original member of The Spinners. 

Caruso and Cameron bonded together during their days with The Temptations, joining forces to launch this Dub Nation album along with several other projects in the works from their production company Nationrizn Entertainment.

GC Cameron’s international smash hit “It’s a Shame”, was Motown Records and The Spinners biggest song of 1971.  Produced and written by Stevie Wonder, “It’s a Shame” showed off GC’s tremendous range and vocal power.  Later GC would go solo and follow Barry Gordy and Motown to Los Angeles. In 1974, Cameron would release “It’s so Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” under his own name and on the soundtrack for the movie Cooley High. Both songs appear on the new Dub Nation album redone and performed in a reggae style never heard before. Cameron’s more than forty years in the business has endured him to fans around the world, as he has become an icon for Motown and R&B music.

Other vocalists featured on Rising Force for Change is the original voice of Dub Nation Paul “Fish” Dawson. Caribbean singer Tatiana Miath from the island of Guadeloupe mixes with cameo performances by Quino of Big Mountain and Amlaktafari of Steel Pulse.

There is quite a bit of musical arrangement says Caruso, that shows off the great musicians we have in the band.  Most of them go back to the beginning in 1995.  Original keyboardist Peter Nuessmann with the original horn section of John Caredio on trumpet and Kenny Schick on saxophone, complete the line up.  Jamaican guitar legend Tony Chin returns with bay area blues man David Rampley to provide Dub Nation with a wide array of strong guitar performances.  Drummers Chris Cortez and David Tucker hold down the groove giving Dub Nation their solid beat and tight rhythms.

After years of cultivating the new sound, the band has brought it out into the live arena for the summer of 2012.  Kicking off their return will be a very special record release party at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival this June.
