With dynamic and powerful lyrics, epic guitar riffs, and heart pounding drums, CNY’s Stone Soul Foundation creates original blues injected heavy rock and metal. They set a high threshold of musicality, thriving on the creation of bold, relatable songs. With their tireless work ethic, and over the top sound, their live show is a hard rockin’ full energy onslaught, performed by a band who lives and breathes for the music.
Stone Soul Foundation consists of Sean Muldoon (lead vocals), Jeff Wiggins (guitar), Doug Paradise (bass), and Shane Stillman (drums). Since their 2002 inception in the Syracuse, NY area, Stone Soul Foundation (SSF) have performed hundreds of shows at clubs, festivals, and special events throughout the U.S. including the famed Whisky a GO GO in Los Angeles, and the SXSW Festival in Texas twice. Internationally renowned Classic Rock Magazine gave a glowing review and featured SSF’s song “Ain’t No Mystery” as the top track on the magazine’s “Super Rock Power Hour” compilation CD. In addition, two members appeared on Animal Planet’s “Hillbilly Hand Fishin” for some ‘noodling’! You can see a clip on www.stonesoulfoundation.com.
In August of 2013, SSF was among an elite group selected to perform at WAQX’s ‘95X-Fest 35 Years of Rockin’ the ‘Cuse’ along with Sick Puppies, Adam Gontier (former singer w/3 Days Grace), Nonpoint, Trapt, and many others. The band also headlined the Harley Davidson 105th Anniversary Celebration.
Most recently, SSF achieved 100% funding for their Kickstarter project, and created a concept video based on new song “Taking Back the U.S.” The video debuted 9/11/13 to rave reviews on Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_baigU-Ecw. Furthermore, SSF’s “Sidewalker” was selected for the soundtrack of Julian Grant’s Pollygrind UFF award winning Indie Film SWEET LEAF - a blood-drenched heavy metal heist! "Sweet Leaf is a big fun low-life heist movie, the kind of character-loaded edgy, stylish Indy flick that Hollywood repeatedly tries -and generally fails- to deliver." Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting, Filth). Official “Sidewalker/” video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ei3pgXlCk24. SSF also won a music video from a suicide prevention fundraiser, Battle of the Bands, due early 2014.
The band just completed a successful “Midwest Meltdown” tour October of 2013, in support of their latest release “Electric Valley”, recorded and produced with the legendary Alex Perialas (Anthrax, Testament, Bad Religion). New videos, “Taking Back the U.S.” and “Sidewalker (Sweet Leaf)” were picked up by several cable outlets including Mood Media for their November Bar Fly, as well as by Style City Music for their syndicated cable shows.
