Resonators are a sweet soul force to be reckoned with.  Both live and on their recordings they display ample ability to hold an awesome roots reggae sound down and deliver heartfelt tunes for the millenium generation.  Check out their sound, buy some music and support the artists.  Their latest release “Surrender” on Wah Wah 45’s is a mighty poetry in music, like a mystic moonlit walk in the rose garden of herbal delights with the beloved, enchanting and captivating in its beauty. Could be their best release yet, proving that this story has only just begun.  Lets hope we see them at some great festivals this summer!
