The Resolvers

Emerging from the sleepy surf town of Deerfield Beach, the Resolvers have quickly become the Premier Alt. Reggae Act of the South Florida Music Scene. They capture the essence of the Classic Reggae Sound: natural acoustic percussion, deep bass grooves, worldly drum rhythms, tasty vintage keyboards, bluesy guitar licks and multi-part vocal harmonies...then blend it with modern songwriting craftsmanship to create their own familiar-yet-purely-original take on World Music. Each of the individuals in the Resolvers contributes to a greater sum. Brother and sister Ojay & Sahara Smith are the vocal engines of the band with Reggae Music flowing through their veins. They are the siblings Jamaican Singer/Songwriter - Ernie Smith. Dean Fishback - seen as a mentor of the band, is a veteran keyboards master in the reggae scene and is highly sought-after by reggae stars touring the area, including Inner Circle, Sugar Minot, and Mikey Dread. Ron Eisner (Guitars) is a prolific songwriter of Israeli up-bringing who runs the behind-the-scenes operation. Steave Nieratka puts his mad-scientist persona into his Bass lines to create sophisticated outer-galactic grooves. Nate Largent is a modern-day shaman with a drumming range as wide as the cultural pallet of our world. The bonding elements that hold it all together comprise of a passion for "back-to-the-basics" approach to the creation of great music, an urge to spread an honest and positive message, and a belief that every single person on earth should be free to pursue his/her dreams. Currently, they are in the process of recording their first Full-Length Album...all while taking on a demanding performance schedule of more than 120 shows a year. After releasing their first 5-song EP which continues to generate excitement since mid-2008, they made their international debut when they were invited to perform at the 2009 Jamaican Jazz & Blues Festival followed by embarking on a California tour where they were warmly welcomed. They were hand-picked to play at Florida's largest festival - Sunfest 2009 and were voted-by-popular-demand to play the first annual DubFest. They shared the stage with many international artists such as Matisyahu, The Wailers, Yellowman, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Badfish, SOJA, and Mishka among others. They licensed 2 of their songs to a cable network show reaching over 900,000 homes and their ringtone "Giving Into Love" has over 85,000 downloads. As the band gains momentum and the list of milestones grows, The Resolvers are determined and focused upon nurturing the primary kingpins of their success - writing and releasing fresh material, manifesting a unique live music experience, and expanding their ever-growing grassroots following - one fan at a time. "Based in Deerfield Beach, The Resolvers craft modern reggae that combines old-school island message music with pop and ballad nuances on their five-song debut EP. The resulting mix could prove a resounding crossover success." -- Bill Meredith, Palm Beach Post "... a must listen, whether its in a cloudy, smoke filled basement or out by the pool on a Sunday afternoon...a culmination of style and sound and the perfect remedy for a dreadful Monday morning drive to work." -- Marc Litt, "Live n Loud" Music Columnist, InTheBiz Magazine "The Resolvers' Debut EP maintains the fine balance between having fun and keeping reggae alive." -- Todd McFliker, Music Critic, RAG Magazine, Closer Magazine
