Encompassing hard rock, progressive blues, alt folk and psychedelia, Stone Sole River are a band described
as having one foot in the past and one foot firmly in the future, their music will take you on a journey
through genre and time, constantly evolving and developing with every beat.
Since their debut performance SSR have built up a strong reputation playing in venues all across the UK.
The past few years have seen Stone Sole River perform with luminaries of classic rock such as The Blue
Oyster Cult, Robin Trower, Mountain, Carl Palmer (ELP) and Wishbone Ash. They have toured the UK
extensively over the last 3 years opening for American blues virtuoso Joe Bonamassa on his 2006/7/8 UK
tours and more recently supporting Fish (ex Marillion) on his 2007/8 UK tours.
This unique three-piece comprises of lead singer and guitarist Michael Parker who recruited the creative
talents of drummer Carl Meehan and more recently David Caddick on bass guitar. The diverse range of
original songs that give Stone Sole River their unique sound are formed with contributions from all three
members. Each person offers their own style, influence and creativity to produce a mixed bag of musical
sounds which appeals to both musos and musical novices alike.
Stone Sole River have recently finished recording and producing their debut, full-length album Terra Mama.
A piece of work which has taken over a year to complete but was well worth every second. From succinct
three minute pieces to impressive ten minute epics this album is fulfilling and satisfying all by itself... yet
only a taste of what is to come!
