“SPARTA — After years of putting thoughts to paper, SteppingSTONE Band is releasing their first CD comprised of 12 original recordings on Saturday, June 1 at the St. Moritz Grill and Bar in Sparta. The debut will last from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 am. The five-member Americana roots band fills every song with tones and tempos from acoustic guitar, mandolin, ukulele, and violin accompanied by electric bass and guitar, the occasional wail of a harmonica and soulful blues vocals. The range of this band is wide and reaches many different styles of music. “Bottle Of Wine” hits on the Dave Matthews sound, there is a blend of John Mayer, Jason Mraz, and Mumford and Sons the vocals on “I Think Of You” and in “Sometimes The Bottle” which breaks into a bluegrass-type jam with electric and acoustic guitar, violin, and mandolin. The broken hearted sound similar to The Cure on “530 Train” walks hand-in-hand with deftly played guitar riffs similar to The Edge of U2 or The Cure. ”
