Bio: Started in 2010 as an alternative rock and solo project by Asheville's Neal Ward, The Stump Mutts released its self-titled debut album in 2011 and its sophomore album titled "1,000 Words to Hold" in early 2013.
By mid-2013, Ward’s studio project evolved into a four-piece band with friends Derek...See Full Bio
“The Stump Mutts’ newest album, We Can All Relate (released in November), takes its title from the chorus of the track, “Ignorance Bring Bliss”: “Hey, we can all relate. Let’s sing along and play, don’t question anything.” That song, a driving — though mid-tempo — rocker pairs heavy bass (John Lindsey), guitars (Neal Ward and Derek Allen) and the kind of percussion (Patrick Wells) that’s as voracious as it is limber. The bridge, however, is a cool shimmer of strings sliced with atmospheric noise. This is an album of astute production and delicate balances.”
