Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Xonestray (zahn-a-stray) hailing from Birmingham, Alabama is the epitome of

infectious grooves. Each member brings their own spin on the modern rock scene,

ranging from full spectrum guitars to "bob your head" drum beats. Their powerful mix

of harmonized leads and stand alone music guides thier audience into hooky grooves.

The name Xonestray means nothing yet everything. Merkel, Spanick, Stone,

Stickland, and Weatherford have found that Xonestray is the "end all, be all" of thier

musical lives. Vocalist Drew Merkel brings in melodic verses while the groups'

guitarists, Jody Strickland and Aaron Weatherford, along with bassist Darryell Stone

add their "throw your body into your neighbor" chords. Take all this and add it to

drummer Joel Spanick's heart thumping rhythms and you've got yourself one hell of a


Xonestray has the "umm" factor when it comes to moody "stick to your brain"

hooks. Their wall of sound comes across as a cocky, yet secure, professionalism, with

movements and elements ranging from old school metal to rhythmic rock. Their flow

and drive will leave audiences thinking...

"X marks the SPOT!!"
