Stonerider are a lean, focused rock band who have toured both the U.S. and Europe. Formed in 2007 around lead singer/guitarist Matthew Tanner and drummer/de facto vocal harmony arranger Jason Krutzky, they have steadily evolved since their energetic 2008 debut on Trustkill Records.
Four years later, joined by multi-instrumentalist Adam McIntyre, they released a sprawling double-LP called ‘Fountains Left To Wake’ which explored their wide variety of influences from psychedelic to soul. Shortly thereafter, pianist Noah Pine was introduced into the fold.
Most recently, the band has played shows with Warren Haynes, Living Colour, Blue Oyster Cult, Europe, Uriah Heep, Robin Trower, Graveyard, as well as multiple appearances with fellow Atlantans, Blackberry Smoke.
On their new album, ‘Hologram’, we find a band holding themselves to higher standards of song craft, storytelling, performing and arranging. The songs are both lush and economical, propelled forward in no small part by an expanded lineup who excels at live performance.
Charlie Starr, lead singer and guitarist for Blackberry Smoke nicely summed up the band: ”Stonerider comes equipped with a little swirling trippery, some bombastic riffage and just a taste of cosmic harmony all stirred in a southern stewpot.”
