The California reggae scene has been thriving for some time now and vocalist/producer, E.N Young, formerly of Tribal Seeds, has played a significant role in this success. This classically trained pianist who now plays several instruments including the Melodica fell in love with Jamaican music as a youth in San Diego. He talks candidly about his journey as I sought to learn more about the movement he is pushing in the name of reggae.  By the end of our conversation, I definitely saw E.N as an authentic reggae ambassador.
