Steve Parkinson and The Stony Lonesome


Steve Parkinson and The Stony Lonesome combine rough-edged rock with Texas dancehall country to create Canadiana at its finest, from slow burners to whisky-soaked stomps.


“The Stony Lonesome Band: some of the best (real) country I’ve heard lately comes from Canada. Add these guys to your list.” ~Sloane Spencer, Country Fried

Formed in 2009, Steve Parkinson and The Stony Lonesome combine the strong Lightfoot-esque stories of frontman Steve Parkinson with tight duelling country-guitar lines and western swing back lines to provide a night of music that is a throwback to classic Americana.

The Kitchener, Ontario, based band has currently signed on with Will Muir's Sound Distillery Studio to create their second full-length LP, after a successful debut, 'Leaving My Key' (2011).
