A mere description of the musical magic created by Sound and Stone does not do justice to the experience that is Sound and Stone. At first glance, the two appear to be ordinary musicians but once they engage you, there is an alluring force felt which attracts even the most casual passerby. As they begin to play, the rhythms, sound, skill, talent, and personality begin to attract and hypnotize an audience with fascination. The way they are able to make music that reaches the soul is a rare gift offering an enchanting encounter long remembered.
Not so very long ago, maybe a lifetime or two, or maybe just seven summers past, I met these two incredible young men; vision impaired–both of them–by the very same genes that provided them with so many other beautiful and unusual talents. Raised in a truly unconventional way and with absolute acceptance of the beautiful beings that they are, they were encouraged to learn from everything, and share the most abundant ingredient of their upbringing. . . love, love, love.
Self taught musicians, writers, dancers, artists, and storytellers. They are philosophers . . . and both of them, the gentlest of gentlemen. They started street busking ten years ago . . expressing their passion and acting on their strong desire to share and connect intimately with people through their music. Drawing inspiration from their unique view of the world, because of their literal vision being so altered, they are conscious with their determination to honour the generations of artists and music lovers in their family. They spent a nomadic youth between their dual hometowns of San Clemente, California and Portland, Oregon .. . and their unique narrative is the result of all of these aspects combined and presented as an engaging musical experience.
