The Stone Foxes
It's not just great song writing, warm guitars, a nut-tight rhythm section, and the occasional blues harp riffs that make The Stone Foxes' so good; the Bay Area band consisting of brothers Shannon and Spence Koehler, and Aaron Mort have captured something else on their recordings and live shows that makes them huge, and very, very cool.
Listeners sense it right away. There's a genuineness here that's rare and refreshing, and it's something that can't be achieved simply by grabbing a couple of vintage axes and plugging into a stack of tube amps. Because while The Stone Foxes may be influenced by the greats of the late 60s and early 70s like The Band, Bob Dylan, and Led Zeppelin, they never sound like they're trying to be anything but exactly who they are. But then they don't need to: their style of blues-rock stands on its own.
Just like a storm on the horizon, little hurricane is a whirlwind of sound who is gaining momentum in the San Diego music scene. Formed in early 2010, little hurricane began when front man Tone, and drummer CC met via Craigslist and have been creating dirty blues together since. Little hurricane’s bluesy soul stems from Santa Cruz, where tone was educated by his musical surroundings, and Chicago, where CC first created her back breaking beats” (Boikdaddy, 2011). “By coincidence, both members lived on the 30th Street in North Park, San Diego. They also found a common interest in unique and vintage equipment and a love of grimy, down and dirty blues. Little Hurricane released their debut album Homewrecker, in April of 2011
