Eric Iverson Discusses the Making of A Better World, Soul Majestic's Third Album

...
So explains Soul Maj's Eric Iverson, who was born in Goleta, attended Santa Barbara High, moved to Santa Cruz with the band Lightning Bug Johnson in 1996, and, six months ago, moved his family back to S.B. The band's battles are evident in the album's lyrics, said the tall, dreadlocked lead singer. "The biggest difference is that the last album focused more on worldly issues," he explained. "There is some of that with this album, but it's more of a story of our personal lives. It's about kids and babies and the next generation. It's about personal struggles with health and money and careers, and just how much of an impact music has positively."
Health-wise, Iverson is specifically referring to his co-singer and wife Oriana Sanders, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma during recording.
...
"It totally hit her by surprise," said Iverson.
...
"This time we decided to bring it full circle and bring it back home," explained Iverson.
The album itself is what we've come to expect from Soul Majestic: quintessential reggae with a lush backdrop of horns, vocals, and drum and bass, complete with guest stars such as Sly and Robbie, Tony Moses, and Trinidad's Queen Omega, whom Iverson calls "the Aretha Franklin of reggae.
...
"This time we decided to bring it full circle and bring it back home," explained Iverson.
Family is another big theme, largely because Iverson has a four-year-old son, and another three core members of the band-which ranges from five to 11 players depending on the show-also have children, some of whom occasionally go on tour. Being a family band is "pretty rare," said Iverson, "even shunned upon a little bit.
...
As to whether Iverson expects big labels to come a'knockin', he explained, "We're open to whatever comes our way, but we're happy with where we're at."
