Aloha from the Pacific Northwest. Kore Ionz (pronounced kor-ions) has shared the stage with The Wailers, Toots and the Maytals, Steel Pulse, and many more of reggae’s founding fathers since dropping its first album in 2008. The Seattle-based group is led by Hawaii-born singer/songwriter/producer Daniel Pak, whose voice the Seattle Weekly describes as sounding “like it was birthed right in the heart of New Orleans, with enough jazz heart to lead a Jamaican revolution of peace and love.”

Kore Ionz will release its new single “Superhero” in early 2017 on Fire Spider Records.


“Kore Ionz has a higher calling that involves changing lives.”
– Marian Liu, The Seattle Times

Kore Ionz should not be missed. If not for the reggae, for a lesson in love.”
