Jason Robert Band
Former Stone Stanley front man Jason Robert is back with a new lineup as well as a new sound. It’s an Indie Blues project he calls Mudstomp music. Mudstomp is what Robert describes as a conglomeration of his musical influences forged while growing up in the Mojave desert. It’s an indie mix of Americana roots music with elements of 1930’s Delta Blues and 90’s Seattle Grunge.
The Mudstomp Tapes (2018) is the last album from Stone Stanley and captures the mudstomp sound in full. However, Jason Robert has just released his first solo album The Death of Stone Stanley (2019) and the new sound is heavily featured there as well. It’s a dark blues album filled with songs about life’s ultimate themes…sin, death and redemption! It’s more or less a collection of bluesy funeral dirges set to commemorate the life of Stone Stanley.
Robert sings in deep baritone while playing acoustic bottleneck or lap slide guitar and is now backed by Dominick Camera on drums, Scott Longnecker on bass, Jim McComas on lead guitar and Pat “Midnight” Lucca on blues harp. The band have begun production on their next record titled Stones Throw Away, a collection of new and reworked material due out in winter 2020.
