The material is entirely written, performed, recorded and packaged by Stutrol. What is heard on the demo was solely created with limited studio equipment and relied largely on the recording capabilities of Stu's home PC, practice guitar amp, keyboard/ drum machine, guitar, a few Microphones and much frustration, trial and error. From here Stu is currently re-arranging, recording and producing the tracks due for an Early Spring 2009 release. Visit www.stutrol.com or myspace.com/trolbatross for the latest updates.
“Echo Within, a great ear perking debut demo from Stutrol, its is very apparent that this guys likes to play his guitar and almost all the album shows this. I for one am not a great listener of ‘show off guitar slingers’ and what are referred to as ‘Shred Heads’ but Stutrol manages to even it all out with his Vocal which makes the melodic guitar work fit just nicely into the tune giving the listener some thing else to appreciate. I am anticipated to hear Stutrol’s new work”
Jennifer White (Manchester Music)
’’To the eyes and ears, Stu’s performances powerful and energetic whilst with more softer ballad like material become restraint and moving, he displays a powerful command of the guitar and effortlessly pulls off the duty of simultaneously of singing and playing"
John Range, (Venue Inspector of the ’PRS’ Society/ Royalties)
Some kind words from a Doctor of Music
“Stutrols raw debut album is littered with many a great track! He have a very unique and pretty style. “Your Own Affairs” has a very beautiful melody with insightful lyrics. "Back Again" is relaxed, comfort with vitality. Stutrol a wonderful artist with much talent and has a passionate and brilliant performance, especially his much melodic and outstanding guitar work!! The music has a great quality considering it is completely a one man effort and has been produced on a extremely tight budget within a home pc studio without endless hours of time to spend in it - I like it very much! A fine guitar/ singer/ songwriter/ and in his own rights a competant producer with the limited production/recording equipment used. 'King Times' is a straight ahead pop rock song with decisiveness and motivation! Nice! 'by your side' with this I like the combination of melancholy, hope and romance in this song! 'nobody told you' has a Pretty intro, nice lyrics. I like this melancholy of this song! All in all the material presents a whole range of influences and fusioned styles of pop, rock, blues/ jazzy notes which just seems to meld into a sound that says 'StuTrol'. This isnt quite a record for the top 10 schoolgirl bedroom bopper, neither the army of nightclub pavement dwellers but for someone with some musical sensibilty who is looking for something different, exciting yet somewhat easy on the ears. After all said....go and listen for Yourself!!!”
