​ AfroBear is a four piece Soul-Ternative Rock Band, infusing elements of Reggae, Hip Hop and Blues music.​ 

 The band moved in together a little less than a year ago with the sole purpose of creating original new music. 

 AfroBear is known for their tight grooves and electric live shows. They also improvise and switch instruments on stage. 

​ Front woman Amanda O'Donnell brings a light to the stage that's hard to look away from. The raw power of her voice commands everyones attention immediately! She is complemented perfectly by guitarist Teddy Powell's melodic chord voicing and tasty lead solos.

 Add the hypnotic pulse of AfroBears's rhythm section comprised of  Sidney Joseph and Doug Miles'. Each switching between drums,bass and guitar duties.

   They are currently recording at the legendary Studio 4 in Philadelphia, and with Philly producer David Ivory.
