Stokeswood / Press

“The thing about seeing most bands live is that they usually don’t live up to the sound you hear on their studio album. Not so with Stokeswood. They hit every note perfectly, no voice cracks, no missed strings or keystrokes or beats. It all came out perfectly.”

“Have you ever wondered what would happen if The Killers and Coldplay had a kid and that kid grew up next door to Radiohead? Well, wonder no more because that hypothetical kid would be Atlanta’s own Stokeswood - five super-talented, multi-instrumentalist/slash vocalists who seem to do it all.”

B-Dirty - My Daily Thread

“I realized at this show that they are outgrowing the bars, clubs and small venues and the large arenas are awaiting their arrival. A Stokeswood show always becomes an exercise of musical aerobics and melodic acrobatics.......”

Judas Moon - The Siliver Tongue Magazine

“The band undeniably owns the room with their unique unpredictable sound, expressive beats and high-energy presence.”

“Stokeswood is a marvel to watch, as they switch between instruments...like a game of musical chairs, all the while keeping up an irresistible, danceable backbone to the imaginative melodies and powerhouse, gut-wrenching vocals of Adam Patterson.”

“Stokeswood’s sound is full of sonically integrated electric and acoustic guitar, piano, organ, synth and percussion. Their songs are so layered and euphonious, you’ll find yourself playing the music over and over just to catch all of the idiosyncrasies found within it”

“the songs are based on melody (and lyrics) more than cool riffing or spacey weirdness...the band plays with an infectious energy and appealing immediacy. Highly recommended.”

“Their quick tempo upbeat songs, “Criterion to the Blue Note,” “Topical Jesus,” and “An Ode to Accepting Criticism,” involve a mixture of swirling guitar riffs and a bouncing beat, reminiscent of the best 80s dance music from Duran Duran and the Smiths”

“Atlanta’s Stokeswood have all the attributes to be a massive international success... Their big, rather British sound is packed with magnificent harmonies and intelligent melodies played with feeling and conviction.”

“the diversity of personality inspires the wonderfully dynamic sound of Stokeswood. ”
