For more than ten years the members of 1592 have been immersed in the intense music scene of Detroit. Having played with a myriad of groups, they have come together to create a change in the music world. While other bands are content to strive for success, 1592 is bent on changing the pre-existing notions of the musical scene. Their debut album The Rise of the Fallen captured the 2007 Favorite Album of the Year at the Detroit Music Awards in the Great Stuff/Great Sounds Category, their guitarist took home the Outstanding World/ Reggae Musician of 2008 and members have received two Detroit Music Awards for Outstanding Reggae Group. Their blend of traditional music with newer technologies makes for an extremely groove oriented approach.
