What does it take to be chosen for a review out of 2,000 plus submissions on the Reverb Nation platform? It takes a band that works hard, plays harder, and yet rocks, not just their home town of Cleveland, OH, but an entire world of fans. Blackstone is this band.
The release of Cast The First Stone, Blackstone’s break out CD is a masterpiece produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by Jeff Westlake. A concept album containing tracks more like a book reading, a story enfolds in the listeners own minds-eye. Misery , a story of melancholy abuse , prevailing in triumph and healing, Clock On The Wall, we can all relate to the moments in our lives, when time was not so much a friend, and Web of Lies, an ode dedicated to twisted suspicion. Cast The First Stone also contains guest vocals by rock diva, Julie Westlake from the band Hydrogyn.
I could rant about Jroc’s one of a kind vocals, and swift guitar artistry, the entire bass action combined with perfect percussion timing and stout, but I want you to press play on the video here. I am sure you will be heading over to download Cast The First Stone today.
From The Band
THANK YOU THANK YOU and WELCOME to all the new fans who have signed up on our mailing list, Facebook page, Reverbnation fans, and our new friends we meet at shows for supporting the music. Ever since the album was available for pre-sale before its release in February of this year the response has been overwhelming. Now that its released gaining momentum, we’re seeing email signups from several different countries, like Sweden, Spain, India, Germany, Nova Scotia, London, New Zealand, China, Japan, Luxembourg the list goes on and so many new folks from the states pouring in. We’re so blessed to have your support and letting us have a moment of your time to write us and give so much love. That makes our day and inspires us to press on to gig and write new material.~
“There is now harmony and a family vibe. A brotherhood that protects that way of existing as a band. Its rare, refreshing and unbelievibly easy to do phenomenal things sonically. I think we’re all grateful and VERY excited about the future. Its that powerful ” ~ Jroc
