Biography

New Grass and Roots music has gained worldwide acclaim in the last decade — from the back porches, to the Ryman Auditorium, Americana is stronger than ever. The Old Stone Revue was formed to carry on the tradition of singer songwriting but not feeling confined to the boundaries of traditional bluegrass and country music. With influences from John Prine, Johnny Cash, and Del McCoury, to Jazz is Dead, and Gram Parsons, The Old Stone Revue mix traditional bluegrass with country, rock, and soul.

Joe Blevins (vocals, acoustic guitar) — a phenomenal rhythm guitar player as well as an accomplished finger-picker — has the ability to paint a picture with his songwriting that every listener can visualize. His vocals are raw and soulful with a down home feel.

Brandon Knox (vocals, harmonica, guitar) is a think-outside-of-the-box kind of musician. His ideas are fresh and eccentric. Brandon’s lead voice is gritty with a hearty flavor of R&B. The harmonica adds a unique dynamic to the group.

Chris Lord (guitar, vocals, piano, mandolin) is a fine musician in his own right. His style is complex yet he knows when to keep it simple. Chris is a gifted songwriter and singer. His playing seems effortless and fluid.

Adam Moses (drums) lays the groove. He brings 20+ years of drumming experience to the table. His rhythm and technique create a total blend of musical talent. One of the best drummers around.

John Holder (bass, vocals) is the most recent addition to the band. John has played for numerous groups over the last 12 years, most notably with Artimus Pyle from Lynyrd Skynyrd. His passion for songwriting and love of music adds another element of creativity to the band.
