Rooted in the Orange County community of Huntington Beach, the Dirty Heads emerged onto the Southern California music scene with their unique signature blend of acoustic infused hip-hop and classic reggae. Founding band members Jared Watson and guitarist/vocalist Dustin Bushnell met in 1996 while in high school, embarking 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. Inspired by the rock and reggae sounds of Bob Marley, Sublime, 311 and The Beastie Boys, the bandís music evolved into their distinct Dirty Heads style. To complete the Dirty Headsí sound, the duo added percussionist Jon Olazabal, drummer Matt Ochoa, and David Foral on bass. Check out the Dirty Heads here on New!
