Covering Letter

E.ZEE MUSIC
MANAGEMENT

E.ZEE Music represents an unsigned band from the UK called Stone Foundation.
The current line-up is Neil Sheasby – Bass, Neil Jones - Lead vocals/Guitar/Harmonica, Nick Sandall – Lead Guitar/Vocals, Phillip K. Ford – Drums and Ian Arnold- Keyboards.
We at E.ZEE Music feel it’s especially important for this band to target their music at specific labels because of their cross-genre sound, hence the reason for sending their Press Pack to you.
They have an album out at the moment, “Happiness is Here”, which has gone straight in at number 10 in the www.americana.co.uk charts. The new release is professionally produced and self-financed with distribution in place. This is one of several projects they have done in this manner largely due to their loyal fan base which has led to sales of five hundred to a thousand copies of earlier EPs being sold.
Their latest collection of songs showcases all the strengths of Stone Foundation; that is exceptional songs with soulful lyrics and emotive musicianship, topped off with intense vocals. Stone Foundation draws its influence from such heavyweights as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty.
Please find time to review the enclosed material and don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested or require some more information. (www.stonefoundation.co.uk)



Yours faithfully,
Gary Lakin

BIOGRAPHY

Stone Foundation have been together now for a little over three years and already in that relatively short time span the group have had three EP releases, “ Inventing Ways To Fly”, “A Country Mile Of Rumours”, (both via Fairmount Gas / Rough Trade) and “Its Gonna Take A Miracle To Break My Heart” (What Records) to their credit. They have received favourable reviews from articles in both music and fashion publications such as Dazed and Confused, Music Week, Record Collector, NME and Time Out magazine.
This has resulted in prestigious support slots to artists like the late Edwin Starr, Grand Drive, Proud Mary, Ellis Hooks and Chris Farlowe with another in April playing alongside The Arlenes. On the strength of these gigs, record releases and subsequent publicity, the band are embarking on a tour of numerous universities and venues all over the UK.
Radio 2 DJ Janice Long is also a self confessed admirer, not only giving Stone Foundation regular air time but also booking them for an exclusive Live Session at the BBC Pebble Mill studios in Birmingham which when aired received a good response from the listeners.
Since its conception the music of Stone Foundation has remained organic, but the early nucleus of Sheasby and Jones has weaved a thread of continuity throughout their songs emulating those that have inspired them.
