Four years since their last studio release, Groundation returns with an album that is truly groundbreaking in both its musical composition and its social content.  Taking the sound back to it’s foundation, the group has been rebuilt by lead vocalist Harrison Stafford and features a dynamic set of  new musicians from both Jamaica and California.

‘The Next Generation’ takes off like a rocket opening with the first ever ‘big band’ reggae song ‘Vanity’ with 12 horns.

Lyrically and conceptually, the album stems from their previous release “A Miracle” here shifting from the Mother of creation, to the child “The Next Generation”

The album takes you on a journey from the militant, “Fossil Fuels” and “Prophets & Profit” to the subtle and heartfelt “New Life” and “Father and Child” and everywhere in between.

The sound quality is impeccable, engineered by the great Jim Fox and recorded all on analog equipment from the 1970’s. This album will stand as a testament that Groundation has reclaimed their position as leaders in the search for new original music and that true to form improvisational Reggae/Jazz experience.

A unique sound that fans have enjoyed for two decades on the biggest stages all over the world.
