"Best Country and Americana Songs To Hear Right Now"

The latest release from Stevie’s Redstone’s new, retro-minded album fuses Motown’s funky stomp with the Rolling Stone’s greasy, horn-laden rock. Recorded straight to tape during a live session in Los Angeles, “Shots Fired” is as explosive as its title suggests, with lush, Phil Spector-worthy production and an improvisatory outro that shines its light not upon studio gloss, but upon the top-tier musicianship that fill’s the song’s core. - Rolling Stone


"STEVIE REDSTONE Opens Up About His Forthcoming Album, ‘Shot In The Dark’ and More!"

LA’s piano-clad hipster Stevie Redstone recently released “Looking Glass,” the second track from his forthcoming album ‘Shot In The Dark,’ out on May 31st. The sweeping, minimalist orchestral arrangements and Redstone’s raw lyricism bring to life his own love story, while also illustrating the type of love all hopeless romantics long for.

Redstone’s ‘Shot In The Dark’ is an infectious slice of vintage gold, a retro-tinged collection that feels both classic and modern, drawing from notes of Motown and Stax to Britpop and Laurel Canyon. Tipping the cap to George Martin and Phil Spector in their out-sized ambition, each track is a rollicking throwback straight out of American Bandstand, chock full of introspective stories of love (or the lack there of), while tackling both cultural and political issues with subtlety and nuance. - All Access Music

"Exclusive Premiere: Stevie Redstone Grabs Us by the Heart With 'Looking Glass'"

“Looking Glass” by Stevie Redstone reaches out and grabs you by the heart. Showcasing Redstone’s substantial songwriting skills with a classic feel, the song appears on Redstone’s upcoming album Shot In The Dark, due out May 31. Both sparse and orchestral, the song is a resolute tribute to a long-lasting love.

Redstone shares, “‘Looking Glass’ is a song about my wife and I growing up and getting old together. We’re newlyweds, and I know things might get tough in each other’s lives but that we’ll always stick together. No matter what, I know someday when we’re older we’ll be looking out our window having risen above it all still very much in love… In a more general sense, I think it also touches on the idea that you may not know exactly what someone is going through, and that just being there for them is enough.”

Recorded at Los Angeles Valentine Studios, Shot In The Dark is an infectious slice of vintage gold, a retro-tinged collection that feels both classic and modern at once as it draws on everything from Motown and Stax to Britpop and Laurel Canyon. Redstone’s songs burst with larger-than-life horns, cinematic strings and wall-of-sound production, tipping their cap to George Martin and Phil Spector in their outsized ambition while still managing to remain profoundly dynamic and intimate.

“The album, Shot In The Dark, is the culmination of a sort of creative rebirth I experienced after taking a break from the road and focused on putting some pen to paper,” Redstone explains. “I’m very inspired by music from the ‘60s and ‘70s, so I think listeners can expect a pretty organic, performance-driven style of recording and production. I think it’s a pretty honest record that doesn’t follow trends and comes from my heart. The rest is up to the universe.”

Whether headlining or opening for The Who at Madison Square Garden, Redstone’s sound is set to a luscious backdrop of ‘50s-infused jazz, jammy Motown horns and take-you-to-church harmonies; it’s a rollicking throwback out of American Bandstand, chock full of cheeky, happy-go-lucky stories of love (or really the lack there of). - Parade

Bio

Stevie Redstone’s never been one to slow things down, but taking a break from the road proved to be just what the hard-touring L.A. songwriter needed. The change of pace offered a chance to recharge and reflect, to experiment and explore, and it resulted in the creative windfall that led him to his spectacular debut, ‘Shot In The Dark.’ Recorded at Los Angeles’ Valentine Studios with producer Nic Jodoin (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Allah-Las), the album is an infectious slice of vintage gold, a retro-tinged collection that feels both classic and modern at once as it draws on everything from Motown and Stax to Britpop and Laurel Canyon. Redstone’s songs burst with larger-than-life horns, cinematic strings, and wall-of-sound production, tipping their cap to George Martin and Phil Spector in their outsized ambition while still managing to remain profoundly dynamic and intimate.

 Prior to going solo, Redstone recorded a pair of projects—an EP with his band, Redstone Hall, and an LP under the name Steven Roth—with producer Dave Cobb, who would go on to become a household name for his GRAMMY-winning studio work with Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell. The album earned rave reviews and helped Redstone land some seriously high profile gigs, including dates with The Who at the Staples Center in L.A. and the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York, where Elvis Costello also joined the bill.
