Jason Robert from the album The Death of Stone Stanley available as a self-release
Branding his songs with a mix of Delta talking Blues and Rock attitude delivered with a rumbling growl, Jason Robert takes a solo step away from his band, Stone Stanley, with a recent release, The Death of Stone Stanley. The album is an audio obituary, collecting dirges along with traditional Gospel Blues to commemorate The Death of Stone Stanley. Jason Robert walks with slow determined steps towards salvation in “Woke Up This Morning” as The Death of Stone Stanley spies a sacred horseman approaching with “John the Revelator” and fleshes out Bind Willie Johnson’s “Soul of a Man”.
Jason Robert sings with a presence, his voice commanding attention as the storyteller when he wears the skin of the “Moonshiner” in the traditional Irish tune while he travels to Bodie, CA and walks the streets of California’s most infamous haunted mining camp to question “Mr. Bell”. The hereafter gets a mighty howl from Jason Robert as he questions the depth of Blues on a personal level with “Never Gonna Die” and he picks out notes to swear an oath for a better future in “Someday”. Jason Robert strums Country into the Blues on “Sat Around” while The Death of Stone Stanley borrows from Mississippi Fred McDowell’s take on “You Gotta Move” to deliver the late 1800’s gospel tune.
