Small Fires was recorded at The Carriage House in Los Angeles and produced by Doug Boehm (Dr. Dog, Drive by Truckers). The band is comprised of brothers Shannon (drums, harp, vocals) and Spence (guitar, vocals) Koehler, Aaron Mort (bass, drums, vocals) and Elliott Peltzman (keys, vocals). Of the new record Peltzman notes, “makingSmall Fires with Doug Boehm felt like being in a dream.” Shannon Koehler continues, “It feels like we finally made the record we set out to make. The sound feels like us. We said what was on our minds, whether it was political, about a relationship, or anything else. It’s darker than our first few records, but making it put a big old smile on my face.”
The Stone Foxes, who formed in late 2005, started out performing in San Francisco, writing, even on stage as they played, and have opened for critically acclaimed artists including Cage the Elephant and Grammy-winners The Black Keys. They spent the past year touring extensively, including stops at Wakarusa, Outside Lands, Voodoo Music Experience and Joshua Tree Roots Music Festival.
