There are many great things about Santa Barbara - the weather, the beach, the mountains, the lifestyle... And you can add Iration to this list, the popular Santa Barbara-based reggae band. Most of the current members of Iration met growing up in Hawaii, but they reconnected and formed the band in Santa Barbara, with their first release - the New Roots EP - coming out in 2006. Other recordings followed, including 2013's Automatic and 2015's Hotting Up which both hit the top of the U.S. Reggae chart. This interview is with Iration guitarist and lead singer Micah Pueschel. It was for a preview article for noozhawk.com for their headlining performance at the 12th Annual KJEE Summer Round Up at the Santa Barbara Bowl on 6/3/16. It was done by email, with answers received 5/20/16. (Josue Rivas photo)
