Of Good Nature is an indie rock-reggae five piece that was formed in Charlotte, NC in 2011 by front-man, guitarist Cameron Brown and drummer, percussionist Joey Vachon. Coming up in the thriving music scene in the Queen City has been vital to the band’s early success, as well as the blending of rich musical styles which transcends rock-reggae with healthy doses of funk, jam and rock n’ roll. It is not a stretch to say that Of Good Nature is fairly compared to festival headliners like Dave Matthews Band and Tauk as they are to rock-reggae stalwarts like 311 and Dirty Heads.
Their 2011 debut album, Just Add Water (which won Indie-Ville Reggae Album of the Year, Nashville) was recorded as a three piece, but founding members, Brown and Vachon, knew that the inclusion of trombone would add elements to their sound that would enable them to be more dynamic, both in writing and performing. Trombonist Brandon Hucks was welcomed to the band in 2013, to round out the lineup which already consisted of original members, Cameron Brown (lead vocals/guitar) and Joey Vachon (backup vocals/drums), along with Jon Reed (bass).The new addition of David Hamilton (drums) has given the group a professional, full sound that has been filling stages all over, from OH to FL.
