This sizzling seven-piece UK soul band have made a lot of friends on the live circuit, selling out gigs in their own right across the UK, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
They made a big impression opening for The Specials at their personal invite, on a 15 date UK arena tour. They backed US soul man Nolan Porter on UK gigs and Joe Harris, the voice of the Fabulous Peps and Motown legends The Undisputed Truth, on a couple of low key warm up gigs.
They played a blinder behind Harris on a live session for the Craig Charles BBC Radio 6 Funk and Soul show, and a triumphant headline show with him at 2011's Vintage Festival at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
Their fifth album, “To Find The Spirit” is an 11-track offering, featuring guest contributions from Carleen Anderson (Young Disciples), Andy Fairweather Low, Pete Williams (Dexys), author Paolo Hewitt, legendary Dub producer Dennis Bovell and US Northern soul man Nolan Porter, of “Keep On Keepin’ On,” fame and “If I Could Only Be Sure,” which Paul Weller covered on his “Studio 150” album.
Stone Foundation’s songs have been used in several US TV hit dramas, such as “Franklin & Bash”, “The Finder”, “Made in Jersey” and “Wilfred.”
