Stone Diamond release their album 'We Stole The Stars From The Black Night' in November


One would think three tried & true rockers would face a world of drama, limiting their ability to come together as a team and as a band.  One would assume that three bold personalities couldn’t make it through 20 years of classic music industry ups and downs.  One would imagine that Cy, Josh and The Tongue of Stone Diamond wouldn’t overcome three very different schedules plus a band breakup just to be reunited as an exciting, up & coming brash, primordial rock band—but that, folks, is exactly what they’ve done.   

Having started as a garage band at the ages of 18 years, Cy, Josh and The Tongue all got an early start to their solo interests in music.  Cy, vocals/bass, began jamming with his uncle at the age of six.  Josh, vocals/guitar, began his musical career at the age of eight and The Tongue, drums, started at the age of six, with just one drum in his collection.  This garage band has come a long way and now boasts a blues-infused rock and roll sound. All grown up and far from ordinary, Stone Diamond offers fans an energized musical experience both on stage and off.   

Stone Diamond’s debut album, We Stole the Stars from the Black Night, was produced, composed and engineered by Cy.  A bold move by most any producer’s measure, Cy insisted on recording the album on livetracks in an effort to solidify the spirit of each song.  Drums were engineered by the accomplished Uli Frost who worked tirelessly to ensure that The Tongue’s powerful drums were represented in full. In addition to Cy and Uli, the guys brought in a host of external talent to help make We Stole the Stars from the Black Night everything they intended it to be. Some of these artists and players include: drum legend, Ricky Lawson, keyboardist, Toby Philippen, mixer, Noah Shain and for mastering, Grammy Award winner, Brian Lucey.   

Inspired by the likes of Phil Lynott, Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, Jack White, AC/DC and Miles Davis, Stone Diamond is truly a musical force to be reckoned with. The music is intense and seemingly effortless as the trio of Cy, Josh and The Tongue are perpetually on the same page as musicians and storytellers.  They make music for themselves but their sound is delivered selflessly as each song is full of passion and personality.   

One would think that the time and effort put into Stone Diamond, the energy present in every song, is something that cannot be easily replicated.  That thought is absolutely correct.  Stone Diamond is a unique band of talented rockstars making waves in an industry that is calling for a shake-up.
