(the) vinyl stone / Bio

Fall 2013- (the) Vinyl Stone is currently in the studio working on their follow-up to "All Things Soul" called "The Soul Element": COMING LATE 2013

(the) Vinyl Stone came to being as Tim, Erik, Damion and Keith brought their life experiences and talents together to create something that they felt had been lost from today’s scene – real music played on real instruments. Through their voices and their instruments, they bring to life the essence of music and its innate connection to the body. As R&B, funk, soul, and hip-hop beats collide, the sounds penetrate the body and cause head quakes and hip shakes. The connection between body and sound is undeniable.

Their EP “All Things Soul” showcases (the) Vinyl Stone’s genre-bending style. The single “Feelin’ Fine” mixes a hip-hop groove, funked up bass and the sounds of a muted trumpet. The instruments align themselves with the lyrics to express the dichotomies of newfound love. Through the instrumental escalation of a slow drumbeat into a cool funk, the excitement and uncertainties of love that are expressed in the lyrics come to life in the sounds of the instruments. This put “Feelin’ Fine” in a category all it’s own – “gangsta love”. This same fresh sound is woven throughout the EP, dropping the listener into an experience that is both reminiscent of classic R&B, funk and soul, yet also speaks of something new and innovative.

The Vinyl Stone had their debut performance on KTLA and was invited to take up a residency in December 2012 at WitZend in Venice. As of 2013 they are currently working on their full length album title "The Soul Element"
