WHO IS SHE? No joke, this girl rocks... As a native Clevelander, Stone has grown in her grassroots following from grabbing singer/songwriter, to an explosive full band, to record label owner, to producer. She tours the country non-stop. With her first release, My Heart, she made her mark and has her sophomore release, RushMore catching the media. Stone's campaign has made waves across over 1,000 national and international
radio stations, charting along the way. CD's are available in stores and on-line now at www.SheLovesYouRecords.com!
WHAT DOES SHE SOUND LIKE? Wrap your ears around this: She mixes doses of neo-soul, funk and jazz in her acoustic groove of guitar, bass, drums, percussion, and cello with a touch of horns. It's the energy of Dave Matthews delivered with the elegance of Natalie Cole. She will grab you with her intelligent music and her incredibly crisp and unique voice, versatile and true.
WHY DOES SHE MATTER? Because she is putting on a show you'll remember and standing out from the crowd.
WHERE DOES SHE FIT IN? This award winning multi-intrumentalist/ producer/songwriter is paving the way for new artists with memorable, sweeping, rockin', groovin' music. This is a brand new thing for the Pop Rock Genre.
WHAT IS SHE DOING? The She Loves You Records staff is working on a brand new radio campaign for the title track from RushMore entitled "No Fool". It will hit over 1,300 national and international radio stations in December of 2003. Her Marketing Director, Liza Blackwell, is working on expanding Stone's tour route by working with several new agencies in booking in new and proper markets. Her Publicist, Mike Farley, has launched a media blitz that has been very successful in getting the new record covered as well as full coverage in each tour stop. Larry Koval, Stone's Distributor, is expanding the stores that carry Stone's records and heading up a new program to solicit the licensing of Stone's music for Recording, Movie and Television. Robin Stone herself has added a new artist to her record label, Alexis Antes and also produced her new album, All Come Down. Stone is also working with her Web Master to create a marketing program to increase on-line sales of her records and to build a separate home that is easy to connect with, interact with and obtain information quickly and easily for Stone's fans. Everyone is busy in SLY town.
WHO IS HER BAND? The Robin Stone Band consists of former Ohio Players back up bassist, Tiger McGee, a talented engineer, professional guitarist and keyboardist for more than 20 years, Tyler Owen, and a seasoned band of drummers in Joe Rohan, Bob McKee and Drew Rothman.

"This music is very complicated and the songwriting very unpredictable. There are so many unique and interesting qualities on this album, one can only sit back and attempt not to be dumbfounded by the musical excellence."
"Being a musician myself, I was tickled by track 10, "blurb". In this track, she becomes very candid, and down-to-earth. It's funny because it's so real! She's reacting to the recording of a song. A few directions to the crew, and a shock, as she finds herself caught off-guard. It's only 11 seconds long, but just enough to make the listener realize that this could very well be a next door neighbor, or a best friend."
"Stone-who possesses a beautiful voice-plays the kind of neo-folk/light jazz that has made Ani DiFranco a grass roots sensation. Like DiFranco, Stone has tried to build her fan base from the ground up."
~Scene Magazine, Cleveland OH
"Reminiscent of Joni Mitchell of the new millennium. A great deal more inspirational."
~WCSB, Cleveland OH
"Stone, a self-taught multi-intrumentalist, brings a notable funkiness to her unplugged rock approach on
her debut CD, My Heart. Those who appreciate the music of Sheryl Crow and Carole King will embrace Stone's sound."
~The Times, Valparaiso IN
Robin's music is best described as layered. Rather than put down a blob of clay and spin a pot out of it, she chooses to put sounds and words down in a methodical and textured manner. This is not an album that was churned out in a few days. This is a serious chunk of her life."
"With a voice that combines the bluesy gusto of Cheryl Crow and the gentleness of Carole King, Stone can fill a room with her soulfull voice."
~Melissa Brown, Williamsport Sun Gazette, PA
"Her music can be seductively slow and elegiac, with well-thought-out lyrics that explore the complexities of human relationships."
~Alan Cackett, Country Music International With Compliments, England
"According to reviews, Stone's appeal lies in her variety of style and instrumentation, vocal quality and messages."
~Sue Hoffman, Solon Times, OH
