Revolution Incorporated. 

Revolution Incorporated brings together Reggae, Roots, Ska, Latin and Mauritian Sega into a tasty musical stew that reflects the diverse backgrounds of the band’s influences and its members. Their heavy harmony driven melodies with positive, uplifting lyrics represent the message, the movement and a revolution of sorts. Since forming in 2012, they have recorded 2 singles (Sunshine, 2013 and Little Dub, 2014) followed by their debut EP, Manifesto in 2016, which you can hear below and on the media page. The band have played at a number prominent festivals and major music events in and around New South Wales such as the Manly International Food and Wine festival, Psyfari Festival in country NSW, Enmore Australia day celebrations, Sydney’s Iconic Noodle Market’s main stage to name a few. They have also supported international reggae act Collie Buddz in their debut Australian tour in 2016.The band will be releasing their 4th release, a powerful, rootsy single, Let You Go, in July 2017 backed by the To the People tour of the East Coast of Australia.

Sam Buckingham 

Sam returns with many stories and a new album after an 18 month sojourn throughout Latin America where she immersed herself in new cultures and varied pursuits. She volunteered alongside Sea Shepherd on a turtle conservation project; worked on a permaculture farm in a remote Costa Rican village, studied Spanish and acrylic painting in a Nicaraguan township and completed formal yoga teacher training in the south of Mexico. Arriving at each new place, Buckingham sought local musicians, street performers and creative collaborations, as songs were written in hotel rooms, on top of dense jungle mountains and every conceivable place in-between. She has toured with Katie Noonan, Angie Hart & Melody Pool, also toured as support with Megan Washington and appeared at many festivals including Peats Ridge, Blue Mountains Folk, Kangaroo Valley and was four times finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. Not to be missed.
