Just Announced! Of Sea and Stone joins local talents The Traveling Ones
on Friday, July 27th at 9 pm!
Adrian was already 10 years into an acclaimed solo career when Meredith made a guest appearance on his 2014 release, ROAM. Since then, the pair's partnership has grown into a full-time collaboration, with the two swapping harmonies, trading solos, and acting as co-pilots throughout their debut album. Returning from Adrian's previous record is five-year bandmate Paul Niehaus on pedal steel, while JD Wilkes of the Legendary Shack Shakers and Fats Kaplin of Jack White's touring-band make guest appearances. The result is a record influenced by the group's time on tour, with songs that celebrate the joy of hitting the highway with your romantic partner («Birthday Cakes,» «Old Midwestern Home»), and examine the darker corners of an entertainment industry that's rarely, if ever, fair («Bank,» «Fixer»). Equal parts defiant and driving, More Than A Little is a rallying cry from two road warriors who, after more than a dozen combined years in the music business, are too smart to play by the industry's rules and too enthralled to turn their backs. It's a love letter to a new genre of music, and a call to arms for independent artists with true vision.
The Traveling Ones
From the moment Justin and Emily met at an open mic in Austin, TX, they knew they had a special connection. What started as a romantic relationship quickly blossomed into a music career that the two dove into hand-in-hand. When on stage it’s hard to deny the chemistry that Emily and Justin share. They released their debut album, Meet Me There, in February of 2017 and in August relocated to Nashville, TN, where they now call home. The Traveling Ones have a big year of touring planned for 2018 and are excited to expand into new areas.
Of Sea and Stone
Of Sea and Stone is known for their polished vocal harmonies and intimate songwriting, blending the styles of The Civil Wars, Jason Isbell, and The Lone Bellow. Their debut album was released on December 1st, 2017 through The Orchard and Soundly Music of Nashville, TN. The album seamlessly guides its listeners from optimistic, upbeat narratives to songs of dark introspection. In writing the album, the duo wanted to show every side of love; the good, the bad, and the ugly. As described by the couple, «the album is not a love story. It's a story of love.»
