Bio

The Stone Sparrows are Meghan Patrick and Sam Balson taking Guitar and shared vocal duties and their good friends and band mates James Gorry on the upright bass and Oliver ward on the fiddle. The Stone Sparrows have combined their diverse backgrounds in funk, soul, blues, jazz, bluegrass and folk into a unique sound combining interesting twists on classic instrumental styles with soulful lyrics that feel at once comfortable, yet still fresh and unique. Their sound is equally at home in laid-back outdoor music festivals as it is in some of the finest live music venues in a downtown setting. Sam is a multi-talented instrumentalist, comfortable on guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, piano or drums; his solos and unique instrumentals always draw rave reviews from fans and fellow musicians alike. He has been a life-long musician, growing up in a musical family in Bowmanville where home always meant “jamming”. But that’s just the beginning…Sam also has a unique and diverse voice that adds rich harmonies and a wonderful counterpoint to his partner in the story telling of their songs. Meghan is an accomplished jazz/funk vocalist with a background that includes opera, musical theatre and classical voice; she also plays guitar, piano and harmonica, and has been performing and writing in various bands and as a solo artist since the age of 12. Their unique combination of musical experience comes together to produce both unique and intricate instrumentals and insightful poetic lyrics that explore the full range of the small moments in the human experience from the perspective of people who value friends, nature, family and art in the everyday.
