Stone Clover is a high energy rock and roll band formed in Detroit, Michigan, that utilizes influences from both the Motor City rock and folk scenes. The band uses modern sound with traditional instruments to push musical boundaries into a heavier and more singular style. Years of packing clubs and winning over festival crowds has helped them to forge a new genre called “Paddy Slag”.
Stone Clover’s music, formed around driving guitar and soaring violin over infectious rock beats, carries them across every stage. With unique instrumentation and musical prowess, they create a visually and aurally stunning presence on stage that engages audiences of all backgrounds and ages. This original approach allows them to gather crowds everywhere from folk festivals to high profile rock stages.
Embracing their roots, while also looking to the future, Stone Clover is poised to record their second album of all original music. Opening and providing direct support for multiple high profile national acts, including Ben Folds, AWOL Nation, Cheap Trick, Uncle Kracker, The Verve Pipe, and more, as well as spending time on the road with the final Vans Warped Tour last year, has further pushed their live performance into an action packed display of intense musicianship and gnarly showmanship. With a continuously expanding library of infectious music, Stone Clover continues to bring fun, friendship, and “Paddy Slag” to stages around the world.
