Since 2012 StoneWire have been crafting a sound that is both unique and yet reassuringly familiar. With influences spreading across many genres the blend of Rock, Blues, Country and Heavy Metal produce something that has been described as classic British Rock with a dirty Southern twist. They switch seamlessly from riff-laden rock to melodic anthems, underpinning it all with dynamic rhythms and exceptional vocals. This versatility has lead critics to compare StoneWire to contemporaries such as Black Stone Cherry, The Answer, Shinedown and more recently the Blues Pills.Sky Hunter's soaring rock vocals and gravely blues tones are integral to the StoneWire sound. This powerhouse of a front woman delivers an electrifying live performance and clearly shares a true connection with the audience. But StoneWire are not all about the front (wo)man. The emphasis is firmly on the word band, setting them apart from other female fronted groups. The bands core is centred on a mix of voice, music and an ever energetic, ever powerful, live performance. This is reflected in the loyalty of their growing fan base who are not mistaken when they say the band just have so much fun on stage.A self-titled debut EP was released in 2012 and the band reached new heights in 2013 supporting Michael Schenker on the Swedish leg of his Temple of Rock / Lovedrive Reunion tour. In fact they were so well received by the Scandinavian audience that a follow up tour is being planned. Further shows at many prestigious venues and festivals across the UK and in Europe saw StoneWire share the bill with bands such as Black Star Riders, Quireboys and Gotthard to name but a few.In December 2014 StoneWire released their eagerly awaited debut album ‘When the Crow Flies’ on 22:11 Records to great critical acclaim and the top rate reviews just keep on coming. Such is the strength of the album that almost every song has been gaining radio airtime up and down the country including commercial stations such as Team Rock and XFM.For StoneWire the mission is simple: take rock back to its roots, bluesy yet heavy, melodic but dirty and most of all... fun!
