"The Unassuming Star"

Item: Stoni Taylor (singer/ musician)
Location: Atlanta GA
by: Famous

This “unassuming” (for lack of a better word) guy has one of the richest, raspiest voices I’ve heard from a male singer–especially someone local. Apparently he’s been on the music scene for many years, and I think actually signed a deal with LaVista Records once upon a time ago, but got out of the contract sometime in 2005. Anyway, this little guy absolutely lights up the stage with this old soul antics. Sometimes you have to wonder whether it’s authentic enthusiasm or just “theatrics” for the stage. I tend to believe the former, though I can’t say that I thought that at first. When listening to Stoni Taylor’s husky voice over acoustic guitar accompaniment, you hear something deeper than the average vocalist. I hear something that a lot of acoustic singer/musicians attempt to reach for, but just miss. I haven’t heard too much of his music on disc or online, but have seen him perform live. In a city where there are a lot of wannabes, it’s a treat to hear someone who can actually sing and play–and who has something decent and worthwhile to sing about.

Bio

STRATAGEM MUSIC MEDIA LLC. RECORDING ARTIST

-Stoni Taylor & Miles Of Stones-

The bands southern blues and itinerant sways affiliated with folk rock, funk rock and gospel hymns are cornerstones of Stoni Taylor's melodic riffs.
It is as though Stoni scripted his interpretation of song from a research study on various assemblies. Sly Stone, Hendrix, Joplin,Howlin Wolf,Zepplin,Bojork,Funk-a-Delic, Richie Havens, Jonny "Guitar" Watson, Billie Holiday, Blind Willie M, Nina Samone...and countless others.
Stoni is able to play each type of harmonic influence in exchange with the other creating a musical journey for his audience.
The unassuming of Stoni’s artistry catches many a crowd dweller off guard. His emotion and melodies come together to unveil the finest performance ones seen in awhile.
The over all show is a personal invitation for releasing your day's stress, fatigue and worries. In venue's where his true artistry is caught coming to life. The music paints a picture that can’t be put on canvas. One can only wonder if a blues songstress has greatly moved him along his travels, or has it been years of both hearing and listening to a praying grandmother humming tunes while preparing for Sunday morning 11:00 service?
