Stovall was started by close friends and Atlanta music scene veterans (The Flinch, The Valentines, The Indicators, and The Darwins) whose desire was to present a style in the vein of country music they heard growing up. Making a departure from the indie-rock scene was a risk at first, but now the results speak for themselves. These rhinestone rockers deliver twang with an edge. Always performing an energetic live act, the band creates a sound that has been described as “Cash on Clash.”
With their set of original songs, Stovall often includes covers of their diverse influences such as Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Maria McKee, Elvis Costello, and Wilco. The band presents convincing classic country filled with pop hooks played by musicians raised on punk ethics. Songs can reveal soul, bluegrass, rock and straight ahead county overtones but regardless they all resound as American music.
Stovall has supported national recording artists such as Roger Clyne, Chris Knight, The Deadstring Brothers, and Mic Harrison. Stovall frequently performs at prominent Atlanta venues such as The EARL, Smith’s Olde Bar, and the Atlanta Brewing Company, and festivals such as the Drive Invasion, Cabbagetown Chomp and Stomp, and Grant Park Summer Shade Festival.
The band continues to perform exciting live shows in support of their first full length album, "True Story", recorded with David Prasse at Loves Park Studio (Trances Arc, Steadlur, The Empties).
Stovall continues to impress audiences with their thoughtful mix of country, pop, and rock. Call the sound y’allternative, roots rock, alt-country, cow-punk or Americana, Stovall promises to deliver songs from the heart!
