Groundation - The Next Generation
Carrying on GROUNDATION’s rich history and the high standards that were set by the musicians before, Groundation-The Next Generation honors what was done before while pushing it further still.

First formed in 1998 GROUNDATION returned to the scene in 2018 after a 3 year 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.

Harrison Stafford, founding member, lead singer and guitarist for the group is eager to get back to creating this unique and dynamic sound which allows musical freedom, exploration and creativitiy like no other form. Having embarked on several musical projects over the years GROUNDATION remains his first love.

Harrison remarks that “GROUNDATION provides a musical vessel that allows me to create and perform the music that I hear in my head”. The sound comes in part from Harrison’s early childhood hearing Duke Ellington and Miles Davis from his grandfather and father who where both Jazz performers. He formalized his musical education at Sonoma State University (SSU) completing a degree in Jazz Performance, where he honed his skills for composing, arranging and producing. After completion Harrison went on to teach The History of Reggae Music at SSU before embarking on his own musical journey. A journey that would by and large comprise to date, of 8 studio albums and tours to over 40 countries across the globe with GROUNDATION.

Presented in conjunction with Reggae Rise Up

Vocal Reasoning
Love is our life. Unity is our journey. Music is our soul.
Vocal Reasoning formed early in 2014, quickly began recording, and released their EP album "Nice Day" in late 2014. The band's massive sound, love, and flavor make you wanna wind up your waist, feel the rhythms and groove to that heavy bass. Vocal Reasoning represents tuff with plenty of reggae roots. Bryan, the lead singer, and song writer, brings lovers rock, roots, and original culture with no will to stop. Mary, the keyboardist, adds a steady bubble with an upbeat energy. Both united in 1998 and share a musical history of love, life, and respect.

Vocal Reasoning has joined the stage with Pato Banton, The Meditations, Warrior King, Maoli, One Drop, and many more.
