Mark Stone and the Dirty Country Band describe their sound as “A Honky Tonk Bar Brawl Between the Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Alice in Chains Would Sound Like. Turning Southern Rock to 11 one gig at a time.”
Mark Stone is the lead Singer Guitar Player and mad scientist behind Mark Stone and the Dirty Country Band and the creator of #Gruntry.
The Grunge group he was in called Juggernaut was Mildly successful and signed with Noise Records. Just like all the other horror stories you hear the band became victim and spontaneously combusted.
In the wake of the demise of the group named ironically after an unstoppable force Mark discovered freedom.
Necessity breeds invention. After almost 10 years he was without a band or a writing partner, but there was no one to argue with.
The direction was solely his own. “I could make music that I felt in my soul. For Lack of a better analogy music is like a painting you hear in your head. In the past the translation through other band members was never exactly like the vision in my head.”
Now that vision was only limited to his ability to recreate it. Mark Stone and the Dirty Country Band Was Born.
“I couldn’t just call it Mark Stone there were already published musicians with works under there belt of the same name. I eventually wanted this project to be a band but I figured if I made the music I could attract the players that identified with the vision they heard.”
Mark Stone=me and the DIRTY=Grunge influence of the past Country=influence of the present Band=Goal of like minded musicians Kenneth Thurman Guitar Centers Drum off Champion and Josh Michaels formerly of the Hill Billy Mafia on Bass.
Mark Stone and the Dirty Country Band is on the dusty trail to turning Southern Rock to 11 one gig at a time.
