Stone Iris - Rock Live Act in Edmonton

Stone Iris Short Info

We are Stone Iris, a rootsy, new-blues rock band out of Edmonton, Alberta. With our signature slow-burning, big-hearted sound, we've toured our homeland in the rain, snow and sun, from Vancouver to Toronto more than half a dozen times and taken our live show throughout the entire United States, from coast to coast on three separate, two-month stints.

As a completely independent, self-sustaining band, Stone Iris has released seven albums, was nominated for multiple Edmonton Music Awards, received steady local FM radio play, and toured extensively throughout Canada and the USA. As Edmonton's Sonic102.9 Band Of The Month for March 2013, Stone Iris was featured in the Edmonton Journal. Stone Iris was winner of Indie Week In Canada, 2014, and will represent Canada at UK Indie Week in Manchester in May, 2015.

"Grande National," Stone Iris's latest release, was recorded while on tour at Deadbird Studios in Louisville, Kentucky. The album garnered much attention from media and music lovers. Alan Cross, internationally acclaimed music reviewer said of one tune, "This song is so infectious, it's ridiculous."

" Have Mercy," our current project, is largely informed by our experiences playing country roadhouses, big city clubs, the streets, Hip Hop Open mic nights, college parties and blues jams from Vancouver to Toronto, Seattle To Nashville, from California to the Carolinas. "Mercy" is a celebration of the convergent influence of the people we met, the music we heard,and the personal challenges of being on the road, tired and a bit hungry, for months on end. With "Mercy," Stone Iris emblazons its brand between the ever-blurring lines of roots and rock.

Infectiously edgy and brutally honest, our music is steeped in emotion and grit. Stone Iris brings a new meaning to the word classic. There's no one else like us.
