Gaslight Street

In early 2015, Gaslight Street stood at a familiar crossroads that every band comes to at one point or another. Their long time guitarist had left the band, and the quartet was reduced to three. They had a calendar full of dates, including a month long tour out to Colorado. They could have easily decided to stop and take a break, but Whitt Algar (Keyboards/Bass) decided he would simply combine his skills as bassist/keyboardist and keep the band rolling. He learned to play bass lines on the top organ while still playing the keys on the piano stacked underneath all in the matter of weeks. Stratton Moore (Drums) and Campbell Brown (Guitar/Vocals) went to the woodshed with their band mate and forged a new sound. Soul, the backbone of their music, had become more prominent and Algar’s own songs were being introduced to the band. They continued their journey out west for a month long tour to Colorado and back. When they returned to their hometown a new band had been born.

In 2016 the band won the CPMA Blues Band of the Year and released “Two Years Gone”, and after two years on the road recorded and released "You Already Know" in 2018. By then the band was regularly touring with Ryan Bonner (Guitar/Vocals) of Sideshow Americans and Lorra Amos and Kaitlin Casteel (Vocals) of Sunflowers & Sin as an extended family band. In 2019 Ryan Bonner was formerly installed in Gaslight Street, and he has become a catalyst for pre-production and writing sessions as the band gears up to visit the studio again in 2020.
