THE BLUE STONES
From Windsor, Ontario, Canada; the duo is built on an electrifying blues-rock sound with alternative rock accents. They have been praised for their big and bold live performances, and have been featured on TV shows such as Suits, Parks and Rec, Battle Creek and Monday Night Football. They’ve opened for acts such as Justin Nozuka, Fitz and The Tantrums, Big Sugar and more.
Growing up in Boulder, Demi Demitro rebelled through her guitar, practicing up to nine hours a day and neglecting schoolwork to develop a playing style that is heavy but agile, theatrical but nuanced, grounded in rock history but wholly idiosyncratic. With Baby Pottersmith and Jonny Fig playing on a conjoined set, the band developed a reputation for their rip-roaring performances. Clips of the band’s live shows and DIY videos made it back to Dan Auerbach, who invited them to his studio in Nashville to produce Nightmare Daydream, dropping October 8th on Easy Eye Sound. “I instantly dug them,” says Auerbach. “Any time you doubletrack drums on a record, it’s going to sound so heavy. Together with this baritone guitar player who is so bombastic. There’s nothing like them.”
