Artist of the Week: StoneWire USL December 22, 2019 Artist of the Week, USL Stories StoneWire have crafted a sound that is both unique and yet reassuringly familiar. With influences spreading across many genres the blend of Rock, Blues, Country and Heavy Metal produce something that has been described as classic British Rock with a dirty Southern twist. They switch seamlessly from riff-laden rock to melodic anthems, underpinning it all with dynamic rhythms and exceptional vocals. This versatility has led critics to compare StoneWire to contemporaries such as Black Stone Cherry, The Answer and more recently the Blues Pills. Sky Hunter’s soaring rock vocals and gravely blues tones are integral to the StoneWire sound. The bands core is centred on a mix of voice, music and an ever energetic, ever powerful, live performance. This is reflected in the loyalty of their growing fan base who are not mistaken when they say the band just have so much fun on stage. A self-titled debut EP was released, and the band reached new heights in 2013 supporting Michael Schenker on the Swedish leg of his Temple of Rock / Lovedrive Reunion tour. In December 2014 StoneWire released their eagerly awaited debut album ‘When The Crow Flies’ on 22:11 Records to great critical acclaim. The album was produced by drummer Rob Glasner and mixed by Voodoo Six’s bassist Tony Newton. Also on board for the production was The Almighty/ex-Alice Cooper guitarist Pete Friesen who provided additional guitar throughout. Such is the strength of the album that almost every song has been gaining radio airtime up and down the country including on stations such as Nicky Horne’s The Classic Rock Magazine Show on TeamRock Radio, Kerrang! Radio, XFM Rock Show (RIP) and on various regional and internet radio shows. Since then StoneWire have played shows at many prestigious venues across the UK and in Europe and saw them support Swiss Rockers Gotthard, guitar legend Bernie Marsden and just recently the Nashville country-fuzz sensation The Cadillac Three. The band have played some great festivals over the years and were billed alongside Black Star Riders and King King to name but a few. June 2018 saw them play a storming set at the O2 Arena in London for Stone Free Festival with headliners The Scorpions & YES and after a successful HRH debut at last years HRH BLUES, StoneWire returned to Sheffield to play the main stage at HRH CROWS Work on their 2nd studio album is well underway and will be released later in 2019.
