Mystic Roots Band (MRB) is a Chico, CA born, 5-piece pop reggae fusion band. With two feet solidly in reggae, the band seamlessly juggles elements of dancehall, Hip-Hop, EDM, pop, and a taste of rock. The band is always sharpening their evolving musical arrangements of vocal harmonies that are made richer by the groups’ female/male dynamic. The music and lyrics are catchy and upbeat, yet with a powerful, positive message. Attending a Mystic Roots live concert guarantees not just music for your ears, but also a high-energy show and powerful experience you’ll never forget. MRB promotes positivity and spreads a conscious message while still having a good time and keeping the party going!


Marla Brown is the youngest child and daughter of the Late, Great Crown Prince of Reggae, Dennis Emanuel Brown CD with Widow Yvonne Brown (Yvonne Special).

With a history of professionalism through the arts, young Brown is no stranger to performance and entertainment. Having Ballet, Street and Contemporary dance as her foundation, Marla has performed extensively around Europe for over 14 years with her dancing ability. A past Ambassador for the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games, a semi finalist in the Hit TV Show Britain’s Got Talent and noted dancer for the sporting Giant Adidas, she is well known in circles around London. Garnering English national championship titles, extensive theatre productions and showcases around Europe, it is believed this young empress is destined for the stage.

With such a barrel of achievements, Marla is continuing on her father’s legacy through her own heartfelt way. “Music and Art have been embedded in my heart and soul from young so it is an organic movement to enter the music world on a professional level and share my love for it with others.”

With the swift transition from dance to recording studio, Marla’s debut as an artist took place at London’s famous Jazz Café in November 2013, as the guest and opening act for the event “Grooving With The Legends,” Bunny “Striker” Lee’s 46th year Anniversary within the music industry. With an encore of applause and enjoyment from the audience, this was just the beginning for the young Princess.
From there she flew to Kingston Jamaica to launch her solo career and represent her father during Reggae Month in February 2014, performing at various shows in and around the island. With extensive radio and magazine interviews, shows and appearances, it was Marla’s impressive performance at the Dennis Brown Annual Tribute Show (held by Jaria Jamaica) where she really made the Brown name shine bright.

As quoted by the Jamaica Gleaner newspaper, “young Brown delivered a brilliant set, which sent the audience into sheer nostalgia as her performance reminded them of Dennis Brown. Remarks about how much she resembled her father could be heard all around the car park. Her renditions of Silhouette and How Could I Leave were obvious crowd-pleasers, but it was her original song, Here Comes the King, that gave young Brown her biggest and most favourable response from the crowd. The song was dedicated to her father and was her own personal tribute to his life and work. Following her performance was a presentation of an International Reggae Day Award, dedicated to The Crown Prince for his contribution to the genre.”

Marla’s debut single, 'Better Days' was produced by Royal Order Music and Green Stone Music and premiered by David Rodigan on BBC 1XTRA. Better Days demonstrates Marla’s writing and vocal skills and as Marla explains, “is an upful declaration to my people that no matter what challenges you may face in life, you will not and shall not face it alone.”

With a barrel of upcoming musical collaborations with some of Jamaica’s finest artists and producers, it can be said that this young Princess has a bright, exciting future ahead within the music industry.
