At the Hilltop, Robert debuts his new music video, "Someday", the opening track of his upcoming album that, Robert explains, "documents the death and burial scenes of Stone Stanley. It's a total re-branding...breaking away from the old to embrace newer horizons and musical landscapes, all while maintaining the 'Mudstomp sound' that fans of the band have come to know and love so affectionately." Robert adds, "All performances and releases after this record will be under the name Jason Robert & The Stone Stanley Band."
In addition to the Hilltop Tavern show, Robert also performs at the 6th Annual Woodystock Rock N Blues Festival at Woodardville Ranch in Apple Valley, Saturday, October 6.
Robert made his performing debut this past Labor Day Weekend at the New Blues Festival in Long Beach, making such a great impression that Bob Barr, one of the NBF promoters, stated, "Jason Robert and the Stone Stanley Band's version of "John The Revelator" is one of the best I have ever heard. You High Desert folks have a real treasure with this band."
The LA Music Critic in their "Ten (Plus Five) Amazing Videos Released in June" column, writes, "We love the down-home flavor of (Jason Robert video) "Bitter End" and think you will too." Bitter End was released to the public via You Tube on June 23 and is one of the twelve tracks that comprise The Mudstomp Tapes, Stone Stanley's 2017 album which has received great reviews both in the U.S. and abroad. Robert describes the Mudstomp sound as "a very muddy sound predicated on the back-beat of drums and distorted acoustic guitars with a lot of re-verb on the drums and vocals. It's something that has organically grown out of my solo work. The feeling is one of stomping through the Desert during a Mid-Summer rain on a Saturday night." Musically, Robert says, "it encompasses an eclectic mix of blues, folk, rock, and a hint of reggae, that takes on a life of its own."
