Alastair Greene

Applying Wisdom To Blues/Rock

Alastair Greene's CD A Little Wiser showcases a blues/rock powerhouse, with a strong baritone vocal delivery, prodigious guitar chops and a knack for gutsy songwriting. Greene cranks his Gibson and moves from merciless guitar athleticism to whizzing slide work to achingly melodic and well-turned lines - even his acoustic guitar gets into the act on tracks such as the neo-bluegrass cut "The Long Way Home". The Albert King cover song "Love Too Strong" demonstrates Greene's ability to nail an expressive slow blues, with an ultra-tasty solo that will take your face off as the intensity peaks. With only two covers, and nine songs written or co-written by Greene, it's clear this guitarist knows that to get noticed in the blues world it takes great original tunes and a definitive style. A Little Wiser is going to open a lot of doors, open a lot of ears and help Greene land more high-profile gigs that should guarantee himself a long career in the blues. Alastair Greene was originally profiled in the December-January, 2002 edition of The Undiscovered.

alb Alastair is a guitarist/singer/songwriter based out of Santa Barbara California who has performed and/or recorded with a number of Southern California bands and artists over the years including: Scarecrow, Spitting Bull, The Pontiax, The Bomb, Preston, Wally Ingram, Mahli McGee, Morganfield Burnett and The Blues, to name a few. His guitar playing can be heard on albums by such Santa Barbara area artists as Les Benson, Bad Astronaut, Kirstin Candy, Claude Hopper and Evil Farmer. The Alastair Greene Band has shared the stage with such artists as John Mayall And The Bluesbreakers, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Lonnie Brooks, and Robin Trower.

Greene is currently rehearsing with Aynsley Dunbar for a new project. He hopes his CD A Little Wiser will get him on the path where he can make a living from his music.

Stoney Curtis Band

Wickedly Raw Blues Unleashed

Alive And Unleashed will probably blow away most fans of muscular, electric blues. A double live CD from the Stoney Curtis Band (featuring Curtis on guitar and vocals, Charles Glover on drums and Colby Smith on bass), this recording includes twenty-two blues tracks that rock with heart, soul and balls galore. Reminiscent of some of Robin Trower's work, Curtis is on fire here, from the opening six minute plus instrumental "Mulholland Shuffle" through the closing number "Precious Lady". His improvisations are drenched in wah-wah and a number of 'psychedelic' effects, and always drive home the fact that this cat can play. A Stoney Curtis live show must be a real experience, but if you don't think you'll be in the Southern California area, see if you can snag a copy of Alive And Unleashed - wickedly raw blues at its finest. The Stoney Curtis Band was originally profiled in the December-January, 2002 edition of The Undiscovered.

pic Stoney started playing the guitar at around age 12, trying to copy his favorite band - KISS of all things. He took a few lessons in between White Sox baseball games and started playing in clubs in Chicago at around age 15. Mostly though he taught himself, playing as he felt. The defining moment in his life was when he saw B.B. King at the Chicago Blues Festival. He decided at that moment that blues was in his bones. Eventually moving to Los Angeles, Curtis started the Stoney Curtis Band in 1994 with Charlie Glover on drums and a couple of other guys. The early version of the band played mostly blues covers in the San Fernando Valley and West L.A. For a while they had a keyboardist with a big voice, but soon cut it back to a "power trio" with Curtis doing the singing.

Stoney and the band are currently working on the follow up CD to Alive And Unleashed.
