Bio

With their Reggae-Rock debut, Closer than Close, Los Angeles based International Farmers hits the ground running.

Formed by childhood friends Danny Primavera (vocals, guitar) and Jeremy Odom (bass), transplants from Atlanta and the DC area, the two added Preston Nelson (drums) son of Juan Nelson, longtime bassist of Ben Harper, when relocating to LA in 2004. This band of basics was expanded upon and perfected by the addition of funky keyboardist, Jamie Bullock, soulful female vocals by Lara Beers and young saxophonist, Brian Landau.

Two years later, the band emerges with an upbeat sound of hip rhythms and unique melodies, built on traditional reggae roots and exploring the limits of harmony and lyrical substance.
