Album Notes
Sinclair consists of a tight-knit 3 piece band that regularly has guest artist. The style is quoted to be "reggae, rock, with latin/flamenco influence." Sinclair has such a wide range of influences such as Dave Matthews Band, Sublime, Bob Marley, Santana, to Chris Cornell from Audio Slave, Perfect Circle, Tool, U2, and then world influences such as Paco De Lucia, Andres Segovia, and many eastern indian sounding music.
The members of Sinclair are Jesse Olswang (drums/vocals), Eric Alonzo (Base/vocals), and Justin Ancheta (Guitar/vocals). Jesse is known for his precise rhythm patterns and intricate weaving of world beats with hip-hop/groove flavors. He also has a great high voice for strong harmonies with Justin. Eric is known for his tight locked basslines with the drums that can consist of great melodies along with being a solid groove that compliments Jesse. Eric, on occassion, comes in with solid 3 part harmony lines. Justin has been dabbling in flamenco and classical guitar (with the nylon string) for years. His unique influence diverts the band from just being a good rock/reggae band into having world sounds intertwined into almost every song. Sometimes the guitar or vocals drift into a middle-eastern arabic scale that is remeniscent of Spanish Gypsies that are trying to free their soul through their music. At almost every show Justin will use 3 different guitars, the electric tele, acoustic taylor, and cordaba nylon. Justin also plays acoustic solo shows (for practice he says) and uses loop stations to create combinations of rhythms and leads and sometimes demonstrates this at Sinclair shows.
All members grew up together in California and are still residing in Northern California.

I was visiting the City when I heard music on the street. Thinking some club had their door open I began to look and found Sinclair on a street corner. Hearing them made the trip to SF worth while. I love the music becasue it is so diverse as well as excellent. I hope you guys make it big. You have the sound and the style. Best wishes.

What a great find!
What a great find Sinclair was. An excellent blend of Latin, Hip Hop and some smooth reggae. Perfect listening for chilling out ont the patio with some friends while cooking up some good food. Looking forward to the next release.

Simply Incredible
If you havent heard it yet, you need to. Sinclair band is simply incredible. Awesome music with awesome musicians. I recommend it to anyone.


Great groove
A fantastic album with many hidden treasures. Nice mix of latin and reggae influeneces with the band's original style. No real weak spots on this album, but Knowledge stands out in my mind above the other tracks due to it's multiple parts, all of which are great and memorable.

A mix of music the world has been waiting for
The world of good music has been burning just below the surface and with the release of SinClaiR's first full length album, the mass media will start to feel the burn of true talent, passion, and love. I cant wait for everyone to get their ears on this CD. Enjoy! I sure did!


Hidden Jems...
My friends and I were walking in Union Sqaure in the CIty and heard this awesomne band playing late night on a street corner. Let's just say that the music impressed us so much that all 8 of us stood and listened for 15 minutes! That's not an easy feat to do that with my crowd of friends. I bought a CD and having been listening to it everyday. This band is AWESOME with its on the edge push in reggae, rock, latin guitar, and jazz. Oh the drummer is amazing. GET THIS CD!!! I hope you guys make the BIG TIME!!!

I love this CD. Plain and simple as that. Every tune just enters my heart and comes alive in my body. The music is so tight and innovative. I have not heard sounds like this in this combination in such a long time, if ever at all!
