Midnite Branch I is a branch off of the Midnite tree comprised of singer Vaughn Benjamin, bassist Phillip Merchant and drummer Dion Hopkins. While firmly rooted in the roots reggae tradition, Midnite Branch I's work on Geoman cannot be easily categorized, as it draws on creative musical inspiration and sonic elements from a wide range of genres.

GeomanReggae Vibes:
Hailing from the Island of St Croix, Midnite is one of the most promising roots reggae bands of the millennium. They are vanguards of conscious reggae who represent the King's and Queen's music to the fullness of Jah. Midnite's profound and innovative lyrics are sincere and deeply rooted to present the other half of the story. Lead singer Vaughn Benjamin's electrifying voice seems an amalgamation of many great voices in reggae - soulful, chanting, edgy, and he's also part of the band Midnite Branch I, a side project of Midnite, which consists of Vaugh and fellow St. Croix players Dion Hopkins on drums and Philip Merchant on bass. Furthermore Laurent "Tippy" Alfred, the I Grade Records producer is active on the last track of the album. - More

Skank Productions:
Without a doubt, 2002 was the year that St. Croix made its mark in the reggae world, with more than enough crucial releases. The Midnite Branch I, which is a side project of Midnite - the hottest band on the planet - checked in just before the new year with their second crucial and complex disc of the year, this one entitled "Geoman." - More

Reggae Reviews:
Midnite Branch I is an offshoot of Midnite formed by iconic Midnite lead singer Vaughn Benjamin and fellow St. Croix musicians Phillip Merchant and Dion Hopkins.  Geoman is their second album, after 2002's The Cipheraw, which I have not heard,  but if it's anything like this album (and I'm pretty sure it is), it has a striking, unique sound.  I often wonder why members of musical groups sometimes "branch" off into a solo or other group project only to produce material that mirrors that of their original group, but not so with Geoman.  - More
