Biography

Stone River is loud, Southern/Classic Rock with a sense of passion, love, innocence - and above all honesty - something that has been missing in Rock music for far too long. George Marino (ACDC, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith), during the mastering of their new album, was quoted saying their music is; ďThe Southern Rock of the North." Rob Lamothe (Riverdogs) writes; ďImagine Chris Cornell singing in the Black Crowes."

The band, together for almost 4 years, has played over 100 shows across Ontario. During the past 3 years they have gained fans from all ages and backgrounds along the way. In 2005 these ambitious rockers, in their early 20ís, hired producer Tom Treumuth (Big Sugar, Honeymoon Suite, Helix, Kazzer) to produce their first full-length album.
The album taking almost 2 years to complete, reflects the bands care and dedication to detail when it comes to their music. Since then, the band members have decided to take the independent route and are releasing their record through their own label.

Stone River chose their name to reflect the way in which they believe their music should be as hard as the Rockín stylings of their forefathers, while retaining its organic roots as gentle and flowing like a river. The bands aim is ultimately the revival of Rock n Roll for the new generation while Stone River members look forward to each and every show as a celebration of their gratitude and passion for life.

While not totally retro, the bandís music has the tight harmonies and musical depth of early 70ís Rock while containing a variety of influences from Folk to Metal. 'This isnít pre-packaged pop or sound-alike grunge for the masses. Itís real Rock, for people who love RockíN Roll." - The Toronto Star.
