Since their formation in 1999, Resination has grown exponentially from a powerhouse quartet, into a nine piece Roots, Rock, Reggae entity that is taking the reggae community by storm. Emitting eclectic sounds of jazz, soul, reggae, funk, and blues, it is no wonder why Resination makes any crowd demographic stop and dance in their spot. On top of the colorful modern roots reggae rhythms that the players of instrument showcase, lead vocalist Vance Fahie takes the crowd on an unforgettable journey of positive energy and conscious messages.

The initial groundwork was laid by lead singer Vance Fahie (AKA "Noche Man"), bassist Ian Hartman, and lead guitarist/backing vocalist Patrick Pearson. The past few years has seen the band evolve with the addition of a horn section comprised of Patrick “Rojo” Reynolds on trumpet, and Colin Dean on trombone. Thomas “Toes” Cuffe, provides the essential keyboard rhythms while Michael "Mikey J" Jimenez excels on rhythm guitar. The soulful Empress, Raeme Miner, lends her voice to complete Resination's three part harmonies and takes the lead on a handful of tracks. "Tuff" Tim Cordero lives up to his name and holds down the steady roots rhythm on drums.

Resination’s current studio release, entitled Conscious Development, showcases Resination branching out in new directions, all the while maintaining the “Resination sound”. The new album is bound to take California based reggae to new heights.
