The roads of life have brought the associates of Stolid together, but Ben, Joe, Ryan, and Josh will choose their path from here. With a melodic three-part-harmony chorus, or a punk fueled and shotgun drummed tune, the songs of Stolid are ready to be released upon the masses.
?I would say we offer a commingling of sounds, some heavier than others, which seems to appeal to our audience, but then again, what do I know? says vocalist Ben Nappi with a smirk.
"I think our strength is that each one of us can write music and sing. I think we will utilize this even more in the future. We all have a part in crafting each and every one of our songs" says drummer Josh LaFrance.
The band?s independent, much anticipated, debut EP, What It's Worth, was released in February 2007. Tracked at Strangeways Recording in Burlington, VT, Ben and Joey split the duty of vocals, and belt out verses describing the trials of life and love. Citing such diverse influences as Bad Religion, Metallica, Staind, Green Day and The Ataris, the band melds in and out of genres, describing themselves most often as ?Alternative Hard Rock?.
With strong hometown support and an exciting studio release behind them, Stolid looks to introduce their music to a wider and more distant new audience, spreading the music that they love to play, to fans that love to listen.
