Artists for Social Action: Matt Jenson and the Liquid Revolution
Matt Jenson and the Liquid Revolution is a powerful six-piece band built on a foundation of rock-solid reggae groove with tight vocal harmonies and inspired blues-rock soloing. Joining reggae’s long mission of revolutionary consciousness-raising, the Liquid Revolution expresses the cry of alternative global thinking in this era of climate change and extreme economic injustice. Not only do Jenson’s insightful lyrics strike at the heart of these issues, but his tunes about joyful expressions of love, spirituality, and the lessons to be learned from simple stories of everyday life all offer a vision of a bright future.
Jenson is a multi-genre keyboardist, singer, arranger, composer, and gifted educator who is currently an assistant professor of piano at Berklee College of Music, where, among his other teaching duties, he is well known for his course, “The Music and Life of Bob Marley.” This year saw the release of the group’s groundbreaking debut album, Dragonfly Taxi, and the band will be performing selections from the album along with a full multimedia production including many visual effects and creative video augmentation.
