Stone Sonic is a Hard Rock / Progressive Metal Band from Fremont, in Northern California. Stone Sonic has a unique retro sound that is a blend from the 1990’s and the 2020’s. The band has a definite hard alternative rock sound w/ progressive metal vocals, groovy rhythms and soaring guitars.
The Stone Sonic band members started as Deleon Conspiracy in the 1990’s with Gerry de Leon as the lead singer. Deleon played with Testament, Love Hate, Vixen, Bullet Boys, Lizzy Borden, Dee Schnider's WidowMaker, Vicious Rumors etc. and toured small clubs and venues all over the West Coast of the United States. The band finally disbanded in the late 90’s.
Gerry went to sing for "Villain", and recorded one album well after Carl Albert left for Vicious Rumors. Brooks Ramsdell played in various Northern California Bands and Steve Coulthard played with the "Street Freaks", "Wrekking Crew" and "Tattoo Blue" before becoming a studio drummer for hire.
In 2008 the core group of writers and musicians from Deleon were asked to perform at a Niles Station Reunion Concert at the SaddleRack nightclub in Fremont, CA. The newly formed 4, Gerry de Leon - Vocals, Brooks Ramsdell - Guitars, Steve Coulthard - Drums and new bass player Randy Bridges who played with Steve Coulthard in Wrekking Crew, all had a great time playing live so they decided to write a full album for release and play again. The original band name Deleon was dropped because of old band members disagreements and the name "Stone Sonic" was chosen to become the groups new name.
Gerry’s brother Rob de Leon was brought in to fill the rhythm guitar slot because a bigger sound was needed for live shows and Rob brought a new thicker sound to the band. Rob’s years of live stage playing in Rock & Country bands, including "Hillbilly Rockstar" was a huge asset in the stage show and to the recording.
All the music was written by Brooks Ramsdell, Steve Coulthard, Gerry de Leon and Randy Bridges
The "Stone Sonic - Not Your Typical High" CD was produced by Brian Lee White @ RxBx Studios in Berkley, CA
