GROUNDATION

GROUNDATION

First formed in 1998 GROUNDATION returns in 2018 after a 3 years hiatus; debuting accomplished new members, brand new music and that true to form improvisational Reggae/Jazz experience.  A unique sound fans have enjoyed for two decades on the biggest stages all over the world.

First singles « My Shield » and « Fossil Fuels » are now available with the album’s pre-orders so you can start to listen first notes of the expected upcoming album!

From the opening drum fill to the down beat « Fossil Fuels » sets a decisive tone. Delivered on a driving one-drop rhythm « Fossil Fuels » grooves alongside a powerful political and social message. Lead singer Harrison Stafford speaks to mankind’s addiction to this costly non-renewable energy resource while offering ideas for possible solutions.

Musically « My Shield » is an African influenced web of melodic and rhythmic patterns over a 6/4 beat. The way the bass and guitar lines interact as well as the bass and drums while the keyboards dance on top; the groove is otherworldly. Lyrically it’s giving thanks to Jah, the positive spirit that acts as a « shield » of protection against all negative forces. This spirit is manifested through music and this song reminds us of the briefness of this life and the greatest of Jah.
