Crafting their groove-heavy sonic bouillabaisse from a range of both like and disparate influences, the South Florida-based outfit, Cypress, does what it sets out do, night after night—wet the appetite of its steadily-growing fanbase. With high-quality, “roots-based” songmanship as their vehicle, the collective compose poignant homegrown tunes, steeped in real life experiences, which echo from deep within the soul of this eclectic, uniquely-talented band of singer-songwriters.

Four years into playing the South Florida reggae circuit, The Resolvers have begun evolving on every front. Adding a full horn section and multiple female harmonizers, the new 11-piece outfit captures the essence of the classic big-band reggae sound: natural acoustic percussion, deep bass grooves, worldly drum rhythms, tasty vintage keyboards and bluesy guitar licks accented by timely horn blasts, all while being blended with modern song craftsmanship to create their own familiar yet original take on world music. The Resolvers are rooted by a core of five dedicated musicians including Dean Fishback (veteran keyboardist who has played with Inner Circle, Sugar Minot and Mikey Dread) and front man Ojay Smith (son of Jamaican legend Ernie Smith). The Resolvers believe music is a basic human right; much like shelter, food and water, it should be available to all so several tracks are available for free on their website.

Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
