GROUNDATION formed in 1998 when Stafford started a roots reggae/jazz fusion group with fellow students at Sonoma State University. In 1999, while in Jamaica, Harrison met the legendary engineer Jim Fox, who did extensive production and recording for RAS Records, including their most iconic releases. This marked the beginning of a longstanding relationship between GROUNDATION and Lion and Fox recording studios, who recorded and mixed Hebron Gate (2002), the album that launched GROUNDATION into international acclaim. Together they built a catalog of genre-bending, deep, progressive roots reggae music.

The group has since performed in over 35 countries on 5 continents with Harrison Stafford at the helm. Their last studio albumThe Next Generation (2018) opens with a full jazz big band (featuring 12 horn players). This album won Reggae.fr's “Best Roots Reggae Album of 2018,” This award was voted on by over 16,000 media members, musicians, producers and fans. The journey continues as GROUNDATION spreads their words and music to the four corners of the world.
