Fronted by Reggie Watts, whose expressive baritone is a pillar of the Seattle music scene, the talented quintet Maktub (say it,"mock-tube") blaze a righteous road of "heavy soul" on their releases. Equal parts Philly soul and West Coast rock, Maktub's unique blend has won over legions of fans and garnered "best band" honors from the prestigious Seattle Weekly Reader's Poll. Arabic for "it is written" or "destiny", the word Maktub was derived from Paul Coelho's novel 'The Alchemist.' The Seattle-based band has built a strong following, having shared the stage with The Dave Matthews Band, India.Arie, Spearhead, Soulive, and Ben Harper.
