Stone Iris, the 7 piece rock, reggae, blues and soul band that say may be the long lost love children of James Brown, are proud to announce their upcoming shows in their hometown of Edmonton on November 23 and Calgary on December 15.

The groove masters recently released their latest EP 'Illuminations', (their seventh in four years) and recently returned from their cross Canada and USA tour in promotion of the release.

With song writing that is laid-back but has propulsive grooves, Stone Iris are able to create a mood that feels nostalgic and promising to let you know that the best times are on their way. Their new EP builds off their previous releases, 2011 twin-EPs The Boo Box and Serene Machine, the 2010 Silhouettes EP and 2008 debut Ezperanza, by revealing a band that is at once more assured and more expansive than it’s ever been.

December 15, 2012 - Studio 37 - Calgary, AB - w/ Open Air + more - Show Details

Recorded with Stew Kirkwood at Sound Extractor Studio, Illuminations captures Stone Iris as they’re starting to truly come into their own. It all began as Monzmeg, a basement project in the Calgary home of brothers, songwriters and guitarists Garret and El Niven. Stone Iris didn’t fully begin to take shape until they recruited drummer Jeff Burwash, who had been banging the skins with blues outfit Straight Jacket before he was even legally allowed in bars. It was the move to Edmonton to attend Grant MacEwan’s music program that solidified the group, though, first with the addition of Regina-born and Grant Mac-trained bassist Ryan Ast (ex-Without an End), and then adding Trail, BC-bred percussionist Juice Jensen in early 2010. in 2011, keyboard player Stephen Robinson and vocalist Kari James joined the ranks of the band, completing what is the current roster of Stone Iris.

Blending their disparate musical backgrounds–everything from hooky pop music to sun bleached reggae to hip-hop and rap–the influence of seven minds has created a mature sound that isn’t easy to pin down, but is very easy to love.
