Feels Good EP
Released April 1, 2014
Label: Fire Spider

In their highly anticipated Feels Good EP, Kore Ionz continue to bring the soul and spirit of roots reggae into their brand of pop that resonates with Bob Marley & The Wailers as much as Michael Franti & Spearhead. “Feels Good” is a song that could turn rain into sunshine and stars the powerful and iconic voice of Hawaii-born singer/songwriter Daniel Pak, which 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.”

Alongside the eponymous first single, the EP includes 4 other tracks, including a remix of “Love You Better,” the lead single from the band’s 2011 release, World War Free. “Love You Better” hit #1 on Native FM in Hilo and Kona and received heavy rotation throughout Hawaii. The song debuted worldwide live in-studio on Seattle’s KEXP 90.3 FM, falling right below Death Cab For Cutie on the influential station’s Top Live Performances chart.

World War Free - Kore Ionz

“Hawaii-born singer/songwriter Daniel Pak belts out soulful, thumpin’ reggae that sounds like it was birthed right in the heart of New Orleans, with enough jazz heart to lead a Jamaican revolution of peace and love.”
– Joe Williams, Seattle Weekly

“With a lineup featuring some of Seattle’s best musicians (not to mention a cameo appearance from collaborator Prometheus Brown of Blue Scholars), Kore Ionz hold true to the tradition of the roots rock reggae they make; it’s about more than just the sound, it’s about a sincere, uplifting and deeply human experience.”
– M. Khazak, KEXP 90.3 FM
