Emerging onto the Southern California music scene with a sound as original as the band members themselves, the Dirty Heads’ blend of hip-hop and classic reggae rips through the sonic surf with bold beats, fun rhythms and the relaxed vibe of feel-good lyrics. Rooted in the Orange County community of Huntington Beach, founding band members Jared Watson and guitarist and vocalist Dustin Bushnell met in 1996 while in high school.
They would embark on a friendship based on music, as well as their shared passion for surfing, skating and the endless party of the laid-back SoCal lifestyle. Dirty Heads vocalist Jared Watson sums up their fun, uncomplicated style, “We want to be positive and entertain,” he says. “We just want to make you feel good.”
