Gladstone Bio

Based out of Madison, WI, Gladstone is a rock band of 5 focused musicians whose paths have parted and intertwined for more than a decade. Gladstone's Alt-Contemp Rock sound has evolved from their early years, when they were named "Photopsia". The early music was firmly rooted in complex rhythms; deeply textured songs born from open experimental songwriting. Today, Gladstone gives a more melodic voice to the chorus with uplifting and radio-friendly rock. Lyrical topics filled with images of nature, struggle, endurance, celebration and home reach out to anyone in the human experience.

The band's influences include Toad the Wet Sprocket, Vertical Horizon, The Eagles, Pink Floyd, James Taylor and John Mayer. Warm, rich, acoustic and electric guitar tones mingle with sweet melodies atop concrete, powerful rhythms. Strong vocal harmonies and keys add depth and polish to the overall sound.

Gladstone's debut album "Paper Sky" was released in October 2008. For updates, contacts, or to purchase a copy of the album, visit
