Junk Yard Dog

by Eric Richard Stone

A diverse folk collection of creative melodies, powerfully sung. Lyrics create visual images of gritty city junk yards and pristine rocky mountain peaks. Sparse arranging is intimate; a bit like going to a great house concert.

Album Notes
Are You Ready To Experience Some New Americana-Folk Music That Paints Vivid Pictures of Rocky Mountains, Desert Canyons, New England Farms, and Passionate Life Stories?

Stone isn't new to the "singer-songwriter" trade. He's been performing original works that are inspired by Western and New England landscapes, a sense of place, the angle of the sun, and a longing of the heart for more than 25 years. Discover a new treasure in a well-seasoned palette of song.

Singer-Songwriter, ERIC RICHARD STONE has been performing diverse styles of Bluegrass, Blues, and Folk since 1978. He is currently the guitar player and lead vocalist for the Boulder, CO based bluegrass band, SWITCHGRASS. And with 20-year old and multi-instrumental son, PETER STONE, form the duo STONE SOUP. In addition to original bluegrass, blues, and folk, Stone melds influences from reggae, rock, and world music. Stone Soup is a family enterprise that allows the Stones to play more pro-bono and benefit events, that often focus on community food-share and hunger issues

Here's what others are saying about Eric Richard Stone and Junk Yard Dog

"Eric's subject material and musical styling is diverse. And yet, his songs all deliver on creative melodies, powerfully sung. His lyrics create visual images of gritty city junk yards and pristine rocky mountain peaks. Junk Yard Dog is a soulful collection that highlights Erics vocal talents, with strong though sparse arranging and production. A bit like a house concert, this CD is intimate and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. You will too." Bonnie & Taylor Sims (Bonnie and the Clydes)

"Hey Eric! I very appreciate your tracks I like it > all the best & cheers" Claudio Giuliani

"..Colorado songwriter Eric Richard Stone renders an edgy innocence that speaks about inspiration from the wilder side of life quite literally. He is also a PhD, wildlife biologist. His voice carries a range and tone that can vary as dramatically as the songs he writes. In the title track off his new CD, Junk Yard Dog, an urban childhood finds balance in the patches of wild forest and a nearby stream, and a dog chained up in a junk yard. With a driving, scat-filled rhythm that harkens to bands like the Stray Cats and hit the Road Jack, and there's something familiar and new about how this tune lands on the musical palate. The Place Where My Father Slept is a lyrical tribute to how we think about those we have lost and what we, ourselves want to leave behind as legacy. Midnight Farm is the children's poem written by Reeve Lindbergh put to music as a lullaby. The melody and structure is original, beautifully sung, and rendered with an arrangement for fiddle that is both subtle and strong. On the edgier side, Listen to the Wind, a song about the road-weary life of a musician casts a cold, harsh light on where a songwriters hope lies; another bar, in another town, might find it there. Stones strong vocals, competent guitar and song material is complemented on several tunes by the fiddle playing of Jens Hybertson, the 18 year-old wonder who has played with the likes of Finders & Youngberg; and the dobro of 2013 Rockygrass contest winner, Allen Cooke. Well worth the listen."
