"I want to speak for people who don't have microphones," Jacob Hemphill says. "Our goal as a band is to stick up for the human race. We see the world and we try to make it better in the limited time we have here." This is the philosophy behind Soja's music, a simple statement that has driven the D.C. area band, who blend reggae, go-go, D.C. hardcore, latin, rock and hip-hop. Originally formed by a group of friends while still in middle school, they have built a massive, dedicated fanbase around the world. With their latest release, the Grammy Nominated "Amid the Noise and Haste", the band intends to "reconnect people to the power inside themselves, getting them to fall back in love with life again". Positive vibes guaranteed when Soja will hit the Rockhal stage on June 28th!
