Track Evaluation: Stolen Rhodes-Gone
Stolen Rhodes is straight ahead rock band with country and blues influences weaving through their power packed stories.
"Gone" is a great example of their total command in one track as they dish it all out for your pleasure. They are solid in the vocal department and musically sound.
If you dig rock, country or classic southern rock like Lynyrd Skynyrd or Molly Hatchet...give this band a spin because this rock candy!
MuzikMan Rating: 4.5/5
More About Stolen Rhodes:
"I usually describe us as American or Americana Rock to most folks," explains Stolen Rhodes' singer/multi-instrumentalist Matt Pillion. "If folk music were turned up to eleven and included guitar solos, I think you would get in the ballpark of what we are. Our music pulls no punches, and we always speak from the heart while in verse."
Upon hearing the group's new EP, 'Slow Horse,' you're sure to agree with Pillion's assessment. Listing such renowned/respected acts as Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Pearl Jam as their main influences, the group (which also includes guitarist Kevin Cunningham, bassist Dan Haase, and drummer Eric Skye) has already garnered rave reviews from the press, including the following blurbs:
"Stolen Rhodes' songs easily could have existed in 1975; there are lots of infectious melodies, rousing choruses and juicy guitar solos." -- phillyburbs.com
"I was swept away by their romantic notions; of big dreams, endless love, and freedom. I could also get lost in the neverending choruses just as much as the guitars and drums and keys that make this album a long jam session that I didn’t want to end." -- relatemag.com
