STONE IRIS Nominated For 'Rock Recording Of The Year' At Edmonton Music Awards
Fusing soul, blues, funk, rock and reggae, the 5 piece of Stone Iris is proud to announce their nomination at this year's Edmonton Music Awards for 'Rock Recording of The Year' for their 2012 EP 'Illuminations'.
Drummer Jeff Burwash comments:
"We are excited to be on our city's radar. The nomination is an honour and an inspiration to fuel our fire higher."
The 5 song EP, their seventh release, was a follow up to their 2011 twin-EPs The Boo Box and Serene Machine and was supported by their Canadian and USA 'Illumi-Nations Tour' last summer.
The band is currently gearing up for the release of two follow up albums in 2013, first one being 'Kicking The Can' set for release in March supported by tour dates to be announced at a later date.

Stone Iris is a brotherhood of like-minded musicians. Playing music everyday and touring are what they live and breathe for. From humble beginnings in Edmonton, Canada, their initial brand of music, a fusion of blues rock with a hint of reggae was created. From there, a common dream was followed and Stone Iris has been blazing their own trail ever since.
Consistent touring, busking, jamming and writing, have allowed the undeniable, yet un-classifiable spectacle known as Stone Iris to fearlessly pursue their craft and passion. With a love for performing, their live show is as honest and original, as it is part of who and what they are. Driven by groove, it makes you move.
Much is in store for Stone Iris in the coming year; including extensive touring, two full length albums and plenty of video footage, so keep your eyes and ears open!
