Album Review by Rocky Ferrenburg

Finger picking, guitar sliding, front porch playing. This is the image drawn when listening to Jason Robert’s album, The Death of Stone Stanley. Jason Robert has a voice that could either be on a country album or on a 90s MTV Unplugged album. The great Eddie Vedder comes to mind when I listen to Robert.
All I Need is reminiscent of The White Stripes, certainly an alternative, bluesy-country tune. Good Vibes is a feel-good acoustic ska jam. I want to be on the beach with a drink and some smoke listening to the tune. Still, in songs like Never Gonna Die and Gotta Move, Robert does not shy away from the grungy dirt that makes the blues cut so deep. Robert has underpinnings of American rock with indie rock layered over the top.
Jason Robert combines elements of pop, soul, blues, and western to create a perfect blend of sounds that are beyond satisfying to the ears. From the biblical underpinnings of John the Revelator to Moonshiner, Jason Robert has an undeniable, down home, southern feel to his music.
This is a must have album for any music fan. Robert will surely blow you away more than once. Pop in your ear buds, hit the play button, and go for a ride with Jason Robert and The Death of Stone Stanley.
You can find his music on iTunes and on Spotify.
