BandRock

The band Stonecrossing and its music is the result of six different people from all walks of life coming together, simply by fate, and deciding to pay tribute to their music roots by creating easily digestible, pop music that combines elements of reggae, jazz, rock, blues and R&B.

Biography

StoneCrossing was the result of fate. It wasn’t something that was planned or pre-conceived. It was the result of serendipity. It was the result of the band’s front man, Robby Lee, a.k.a. Crow, landing himself in fortunate situations, as he typically does, that lead to the next career stepping stone. Crow was fresh out of the military, and dealing with the heartbreaking demise of his huge European success, ZULU FAT, when he befriended the critically acclaimed Russian band, Bering Strait. Upon becoming roommates with a couple of Bering Strait’s band members; nightly songwriting sessions soon became a regular occasion.

It wasn’t long before publishing demos were in the works and ideas for a side project were being tossed around. After enlisting guitarist Shane Keenan (BOOGIE) and singer Marie Hickey (Gypsie) to complete the publishing demos, it was upon the advice of Nashville record producer, Jim McKell, that the project be carried further than publishing demos. Well, the rest is history.

After finding dedicated replacements for the original rhythm section (Bering Strait), the band has now established its’ self in Nashville, TN, and is currently paying it’s dues, as it should, in the underground scene. StoneCrossing is currently dedicating their efforts to writing contemporary music that caters to a wide variety of genres and is seeking management and booking so that they might take their vision to a wider audience.

Stonecrossing is different from many other underground bands. They have the capacity to entertain while avoiding the stigma of following a specific format. They combine the influences of Sting, the Wooten Brothers, Jeff Beck, Dire straits and Tracy Chapman into a sonic tapestry that one fan described as “the Greatful Dead meets No Doubt”. They have pop appeal combined with the rawness of a late night roadhouse blues jam.

When it’s all said and done, Stonecrossing is a fun band. They offer something for everyone.
