At the Hilltop, Robert debuts his new music video, “Someday”, the opening track of his upcoming album that, Robert explains, “documents the death and burial scenes of Stone Stanley. It’s a total re-branding…breaking away from the old to embrace newer horizons and musical landscapes, all while maintaining the ‘Mudstomp sound’ that fans of the band have come to know and love so affectionately.” Robert adds, “All performances and releases after this record will be under the name Jason Robert & The Stone Stanley Band.”
In addition to the Hilltop Tavern show, Robert also performs at the 6th Annual Woodystock Rock N Blues Festival at Woodardville Ranch in Apple Valley, Saturday, October 6th.
Robert made his performing debut this past Labor Day Weekend at the New Blues Festival in Long Beach, making such a great impression that Bob Barr, one of the NBF promoters, stated, “Jason Robert and the Stone Stanley Band’s version of “John The Revelator” is one of the best I have ever heard. You High Desert folks have a real treasure with this band.”
The LA Music Critic in their “Ten (Plus Five) Amazing Videos Released in June” column, writes, “We love the down-home flavor of (Jason Robert video) “Bitter End” and think you will too.” Bitter End was released to the public via You Tube on June 23 and is one of the twelve tracks that comprise The Mudstomp Tapes, Stone Stanley’s 2017 album which has received great reviews both in the U.S. and abroad. Robert describes the Mudstomp sound as “a very muddy sound predicated on the back-beat of drums and distorted acoustic guitars with a lot of re-verb 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 Saturday night.” 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.”
What The Press Is Saying about The Mudstomp Tapes ~ Jason Robert/Stone Stanley
“Robert straddles the various genres with the grace of a tightrope walker. He picks bits and pieces from each and rearranges them into a new a musically delightful pattern, and finds new ways to explore old themes. The music runs the gamut from ethereal to rocking. Robert also has heart and soul and is certainly not afraid to put them out on display.”
“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.”
“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.”
