Many musicians are drawn towards Cannabis and so naturally came forward to support our wave of change. Hemp My Band was developed to promote the use of organic hemp blend band t-shirts instead of the traditional toxic cotton T's. We continue to promote the use of Hemp T-shirts along with everything else hemp. Look for us at your local show or contact us to join us.
The following are some of the musicians that agreed to support us in our mission. Many of the musicians were led to us by our dear departed friend Damien Russell founder of Bearijuana Republic and D.R.A.W. Damien's life was blessed with adventure and many good friends along the way. We were honored to have his influence in developing this branch of US Hemp Co.
Toots & the Maytals We are very thankful that Toots and the Maytals are with us in inspiring the Human Revolution. We are invigorated by such significant support from the Roots of Reggae.

Side Street Reny Reny and Bell (together for 14 years) blend bluesy/funky finger-style and slide on National Resonator guitar, original poignant songwriting and solid straight forward grooves. Drawing mostly from pre-war blues, roots and folk music with a little old school rap, calypso and dancehall reggae, SSR manage to forge their own sound and push musical boundaries in an era when many other musicians strive to sound the same.
The result of their efforts is a seemingly organic blend of the elements, sewing 100 plus years of American music into a rich tapestry of eclectic yet somehow familiar sounds all their own… Like everything, and nothing you've ever heard, all at once.
Human Lab The five-piece Huntington Beach, California-based band is amped on love in all its phases – whether bleeding from a broken heart, or tapping into it as a renewable resource – in a way that is neither suffocating nor invasive. Their sound is the equivalent of whatever the hell Cupid’s got on the tip of his arrow, almost intoxicating with oft-expressions of the most basic however complex human desires.

The Samples Long before the rise of O.A.R. and the Dave Matthews Band, The Samples had cornered the market on the sort of feel-good, world beat-infused pop that initially had been popularized by Sting and The Police. Indeed, throughout its career, The Samples never strayed far from its effective, if not exactly groundbreaking, formula of whipping its fusion of folk, rock, and reggae sounds into an lush, but airy confection that exuded a pleasantly joyful optimism. musicboxonline.com
Kevin Kinney "We've spent the better part of the last five years criss crossing the deepest dirtiest beautiful American South. We are here to entertain. In the bars, so filled with smoke you could hardly recognize a true fire. People have come to see what you got. We show up for the show and wade through a crowd as diverse as the music we're gonna play tonight. There's a girl with a tattoo of Dale Earnharts number 3 on her neck. Drifters, grifters, gonna be's and has beens. Country folk. City folk. Workin' folk. 'Remember you can't be a folk singer if you got no folks to sing to.' I said that… And these folks expect music all night long… three sets… and requests…
This is where you learn your 'chops'… tried true and set. It's where the legends begin. Jimi Hendrix with Little Richard at the Royal Peacock on sweet Auburn Avenue, the Allman Brothers in underground Atlanta, The Satellites at Hedgens. And if you want it, there it is, go get it and you play all night till you can hardly breathe and fingers hurt and you can hardly think through the heat and the there's ten drunk people talkin' at you at the same time. Your grace is tested. But there's always too, that couple in the back sitting quietly at a booth and you can tell from their glances toward you they get it. This is where this album comes from. And I love it. One of the easiest records I ever made, just doing what you do. When in doubt just be yourself.
US Hemp The band with the collest name for sure. “Who Are These Polecats Polling?” released in 2009. Everyone should be sick of these fake political polls by now and this Polecat Album will make a great Christmas present and topic of conversation over the holidays. The first 1,000 copies have an original U.S. Hemp Leaf Button setting in the center of the jewel case. These old hemp leaf buttons have a remarkable history, as do the vintage guitars that U.S. Hemp used to create this album.
