Over two decades into a storied career which has helped define American roots reggae, Groundation is back with One Rock, which keeps their legend alive and pushes their sound and spirit ever forward.
Groundation has helped to define modern American roots reggae since its first recordings in 1999 and is one of the biggest American reggae bands on the live circuit throughout Europe and South America. Now with Easy Star Records, they are working to increase their following in their home country as well.
Harrison Stafford leads the current line-up of the band through nine intense songs with complex arrangements, moving melodies, and lyrics that touch on the human condition, human spirit, and the state of the world.
Always a group to respect their elders and forebears, Groundation makes history by bringing together the legendary reggae vocal groups Israel Vibration and The Abyssinians on one track, while also working with the Congos on another.
As with all Groundation releases, One Rock was recorded strictly analog to 2” tape with Jim Fox recording and mixing. The vinyl version of the album is printed in a gorgeous gatefold jacket on 180 gram vinyl.
