drawing in the audience with their honesty and fragility. Their performances carry
the spirit of their influences on their sleeve; The Band, Wilco, Neil Young.

distinctive sound. The group of musicians share his unparalleled passion and his
influences too. Led by Stone’s song-writing, The Dylan Stone Band consistently
produce an honest and effusive breed of Canadian rock and roll.

both his own songs and the Americana standards that inspire him. Although Stone
does perform as a solo artist, he is at home with his band.

long-term friends who have each achieved individual successes throughout their
careers in the music industry. They are ;Gord Light(bass), Adam Cleland (guitar),
