Red Stone Souls
Hard Blues, Garage and Psychedelic Rock and Roll tossed into a blender and turned on high. Red Stone Souls, formed in early 2010, have busted down the doors of the “New Generation” rock scene. The band layers Ian Kirwan's (the NiNeS) vintage “Dirty” guitar work and road-seasoned vocals with dynamic riffs and lyrical stories to create a genre defying sound chocked full of rock for a new generation of fans. The band also features, Beau Felix (Dangerous Pursuit) guitars, Kevin Bernard (the NiNeS) on the bottom end and Travis Erickson (Squeeze Tina) shotgun style on the kicks. This potent combination cranks out, blistering micro-anthems embodying that basic Rock and Roll steamroller aesthetic. Ultimately, it's “Red Stone Souls” live show that generates the most enthusiastic reviews. "Like your best friend's older brother's cool band . . . A kick ass show." They perform without binding to convention, and without regard to perfection or even to the constraints of generic sound. Highs shriek, lows rumble, and no matter the size of the venue, rooms rattle. People stop what they’re doing and watch. In the end, “Red Stone Souls” consider themselves to be very simply…. a rock and roll band. They eschew convention and boundaries in favor of pushing the envelope. They enjoy the freedom of making rock music, and take full advantage of the inherent rights it gives the artist to do anything that they want.
