BandAlternativeRock Stereophile is one of those band you see for the first time and are hooked into what they are doing. Close your eyes and you can imagine a 5 piece band, open your eyes and realise that the big full sound is coming from only 3 guys.


Stereophile, from Los Angeles (formerly from Australia)is a funk/rock three-piece band (formed in 2001) with a polished and powerful sound. The band’s individual talents and enthusiasm combined create a band that performs their recorded sound live.
