GETTING TO KNOW THE STONE ANGELS
by Jacqueline Jax
To have a stable career from doing something you love.
We are currently continuing writing and recording towards a full studio album along with planning our 2nd Mini U.K tour of 2015. We are also scripting ideas for music videos to accompany our planned releases.
We both picked up our instruments at a young age, Dan (Guitar & Vocals) at 12 and Sam (Drums, Bass, Keyboards) at 14. We both attended the same music college 2 years apart.
took quite a lot of work, some songs happen easily but some take time. The guitar riff came from a time when the band was a 4 piece and a few months after that the band had become a trio and eventually led to us being a duo.
It signifies from what the band was to what it is now. ‘Take Me’ couldn’t be more different now to how the very primitive idea was. (Buy the song: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/ep-ep/id950269373)
We’re from a coastal town in the South West of England called Torquay. Torquay used to have a lot of live music pubs and clubs but most of them have disappeared over the years. There are still several around but the best live music venue in Torquay is The Apple & Parrot.
We like the accessibility of it, and the opportunity to interact with your fans which is easily done on a lot of sites. The challenges would be keeping people aware of your progress and updates as some social sites change the way that people see posts etc.
HAVE TO MEET…
There are several artists we admire for their songwriting and general influence on our music. Artists we would love to meet would be Muse (who are from Teignmouth, 15 mins drive away from where we are), The Killers, Led Zeppelin, Queen. They all have incredible songwriting abilities and have changed people’s perceptions of certain genre’s as well as influencing others.
We find that trends are always changing so why not create a new one? With our artistic decisions, we usually see what vibe the song has when we begin writing it as to whether it is a ‘commercial’ track or an album track. Every band has at least 1 song that you recognize them from, but we try to make sure that we have our own musical identity.
