“The (Bitter End) video will play on a big screen via projector, in between the sets of Delta Shade and Stone Stanley,” explains Jason Robert, Stone Stanley’s frontman/guitarist-vocalist. Robert goes on to say that Bitter End is “a Crossroads-like tale which focuses on pleasure over burden, longetivity over burnout. Hardship and adversity are overcome with persaverance, in music and in life.” The video will be released to the public via You Tube on Saturday, June 23.
Bitter End is one of twelve songs that comprise The Mudstomp Tapes, Stone Stanley’s 2017 album which has received great reviews both in the U.S. and abroad. Robert decribes the Mudstomp sound as “a very muddy sound predicated on the backbeat of drums and distorted acoustic guitars with a lot of reverb on the drums and vocals. It’s something that has organically grown out of my solo work. The feeling is one of stomping through the Desert during a Mid-Summer rain on a Saturdaynight.” Musically, Robert says, “it encompasses an eclectic mix of blues, folk, rock, and a hint of reggae, that takes on a life of its own.”
2018 promises to be a busy year for Jason Robert and Stone Stanley, who make their debut at the Long Beach New Blues Festival on Labor Day weekend and play the 6th Annual Woodystock Festival in October.
What The Press Is Saying About The Mudstomp Tapes/Stone Stanley
“The songs (on The Mudstomp Tapes) go in and out of emotional switches…they are analogies, tall tales and short stories, “Bitter End”, “Bottled”, Cobble Hill, “Freedom Chant”, Iroquois Chant”, “My Shame”, “So Glad”– just one hit after the other with the “Slap” of honesty.” – Indie Pulse Music
“A terrific album, full of grit and soul and steeped in the Blues. Lead man Jason Robert and his hard-edged vocal and slide guitar is very well backed by a revolving set of musicians who add immeasurably to his vision. One of the better and more edgy albums I’ve heard this year.” – Music-News (U.K.)
