Bio: "Blue Oaks’ music is a loose amalgam of blues, country, folk, rock ’n’ roll, and soul. The songs are gritty, mysterious and sometimes wander into the familiar sounds of past generations, all while taking unpredictable detours."- Aaron Carnes - SN&R April 11th, 2014

“Johnny Cash may be single-handedly responsible for putting the city of Folsom on the pop-culture map with his woeful prison blues, but four decades later, not much else comes to mind when hearing the name. In need of resurgence, Blue Oaks may just be the guys for the job. Frontman Brendan Stone’s smoky, mature vocals are smoothly velveted over somber-sounding minor chords, creating a soundscape reminiscent of singer-songwriter patriarchs—Tom Waits and Neil Young, most notably—that is so often attempted but rarely well-executed. The perfect soundtrack to the impending fall gloom, Blue Oaks should surely not be missed.”
