The Gentle Stunts is the brainchild of Cal McNamara. Cal grew up well aware of the great pop icons of our time, then slowly began to find some of the lesser-known, but just as important, pop phenoms such as Guided By Voices and My Bloody Valentine. Having played instruments and become a virtuoso with a multitude of them, he realized suddenly that this "new music" he was hearing was in fact long gone and part of an entirely different era and mindset of music. From that point on, he set out at 18 years old to apply the magic of those musical era's in the modern age.
With two LP's out in the open,one of which recently dropped on 9/3/2103, Cal continues to create impulsively with an ever-growing understanding of production and songwriting. The music starts upstairs and makes it's way from his mind into the basement where his home studio exists to serve as a pylon for the end results.
