The Stone Foxes Release New EP

The Stone Foxes released their EP Visalia on September 15. The long-awaited five tracks stay true to the origins of blues, country and Americana, and also allow the group's trademark live-show energy and contemporary spirit to shine through. The result has been praised by critics, with Live For Live Music describing the EP as “warmly nostalgic on the surface, but sincerely topical at its core." Singer/drummer Shannon Koehler gives insight on the anthemic, stripped-back track and on Visalia as a whole:“It’s really reflective of how important it is to live in the moment. When you’re with your loved ones and friends, and all having the time of your life, if I die, I’d be alright with it. I live with a pacemaker and have undergone 11 heart surgeries. Every moment is precious. Visalia also dives deep into roots blues music. We wanted to pay tribute to some of our blues/rock idols, while putting out a statement of frustration and anger in response to what’s happening in America right now.” Listen here
