Set List

"I Killed Robert Johnson"


The four San Franciscans in The Stone Foxes have an energetic style that's rooted in swampy, foot-stomping blues-rock. Their freshly released sophomore album, Bears and Bulls, tackles ambitious arrangements with diverse moods ranging from acoustic twang to thunderous electric-guitar riffs.

The band is best known for its live shows: Explosive and in constant flux, the sets find The Stone Foxes swapping instruments and lead vocal duties. They emphasize an immediate connection to fans and listeners; as such, the material on Bears and Bulls was worked out onstage and self-recorded with live instrumentation and very few overdubs.
