Stone Lily
Songs Of Austerity

aus·ter·i·ty: Difficult economic conditions created by government measures to reduce a budget deficit, esp. by reducing public expenditure

A bold exposure of sonic emotions and witty lyrics that skate along simple melodies, interesting arrangements and searing solos that switch styles from humor, blues, funk rock, country, bluegrass and hard rock with semi-intelligent concepts.

This collection of songs was recorded during the month of April 2011 at Skunk Cabbage Studios in West Brookfield, MA, USA.

Stone Lily is a band that has their own signature Blues/Funk/Rock sound but always exceeds the rock and roll constraints to find musical moments in many other styles. This album will take you on a sonic journey through the Chinese Canyons of Old West USA, to the Hot Summer Highway of Georgia and Florida.

You may ask yourself... Did I just hop on a bus to Toledo with Led Zeppelin performing a Zappa song with outfits worn by the White Stripes? Did a bunch of Berklee cats just wet themselves at the notion of Pink Floyd performing country at their cousin's Bar-Mitzvah? The answer is "Yes", only of if it will help you understand and perhaps enjoy these Songs of Austerity.
