Robert – who capped a solid 2018 with a “Best Video” nomination for “Mr. Bell” from the 2018 L.A. Music Critic Awards – released his new album “The Death of Stone Stanley,” on February 5th. “Jason Robert’s talent as a composer, guitarist, and vocalist is undeniable. He has taken the premise of Delta Blues and infused it with a sound that is rough, raw, and, indeed, unique. His originals are created in the style of the past masters, and, “The Death Of Stone Stanley” is a crowning achievement!” –Nashville Blues & Roots Alliance.
Jason recently released two of the tracks on The Death of Stone Stanleyas videos, which the press has said “Mr. Bell is a spooky, haunting track…the story of a town doomed to last forever in that place between worlds” – Indie Pulse Music); and, “John The Revelator is an amazing cover of the 1926 blues classic” – L.A. Music Critic).
Robert’s previous 2017 album The Mudstomp Tapes, (released under the Stone Stanley moniker) 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.”
