“We have some insane guests, childhood heroes of ours, from Ali Campbell of UB40, Don Carlos of course, Alborosie, Chali 2na from Jurassic 5, King Yellowman, G Love. It's been a lot of fun for us, it’s like paying tribute to the people we grew up listening to. They paved the way for so many of the young bands today playing reggae music, and those guys are at the forefront of where it all started.”
- Miles Doughty (Slightly Stoopid)
Today, Slightly Stoopid release their highly anticipated 9th studio album Everyday Life, Everyday People.
Slightly Stoopid inspires a collective and community based atmosphere conducive to everyday life, and embedded in their craft. Embracing the art of collaboration, the band is often joined by an arsenal of guests both on stage and in the studio. Special guest appearances on this LP include Ali Campbell (UB40), Alborosie, G. Love, Chali 2na(Jurassic 5), Don Carlos, Yellowman, Sly Dunbar (Sly and Robbie) and more.
“I think for us, at the point we are at in our lives; all of us have kids, and we’ve been touring for so long and seen so much, I think all of it is reflected in the new record (Everyday Life, Everyday People) and relates to everyone.” - Miles Doughty (Slightly Stoopid)
Everyday Life, Everyday People was inspired by the band’s hometown, Ocean Beach/San Diego, CA. To bring the vibe of their hometown visually, the band worked with friend and renowned artist Jay Alders who hand painted the cover art for Everyday Life, Everyday People. Alders is widely known for his surf art paintings.
Everyday Life, Everyday People was recorded at various studios across the world in San Diego, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Kingston, Jamaica, Long Beach, CA, New York, NY, and Miami, FL. It was produced by Slightly Stoopid, James M. Wisner, George Spits (LlamaBeats), Michael “Miguel” Happoldt, Jerry Wonda, and Colin “Bulby” York.
For the second year in a row, Slightly Stoopid's annual outdoor amphitheater tour ranked in Pollstar’s Top 100 Global Tours. The tour has brought the band across the country making countless packed and sold out stops in cities coast to coast as well as festival appearances at Hangout, Summer Camp, Cali Roots, Summerfest, Levitate Music & Arts Festival and Arise Music Festival along the way.
