Uncut Stones

                 
"If ever (and rarely) a band is found that can be so concise, clear, poetic, and potent that the spirit itself is moved; attention need be demanded. Uncut Stones display a musical maturity, respect, talent level, and professionalism that is rarely found and every available room needs to be made aware." - Joe Benedict, Gorilla Music Production/Management
        
 
           
                 
About The Band:

Uncut Stones is a WNY/Buffalo area Christian band with progressive rock influences. Their sound is similar to bands like Gungor and Lincoln Brewster. There first full length CD “We Will Rise Up” features blues guitar legend Will McFarlane. Many people remember Will McFarlane when he played guitar for Bonnie Raitt. He is featured on the song “Lay My Burden Down” which is a cover song from Will McFarlane’s album "Axe To The Root".

Uncut Stones was originally formed to record all the songs Dan had written through the years, but never got a chance to record. As that idea grew, they wanted to play Christian events and church functions once they finished the album. Things changed for them after playing at the Tralf Music hall during a battle of the bands. They soon realized that their music could reach saved and unsaved people alike. Their music was able to fill the gap between Christian and non Christian audiences. With that in mind they started playing at local clubs including popular places like the Hard Rock Café.

        

There biggest show for them was this last summer while playing at Darien Lake for the Kingdom Bound music event. This event is run by Kingdom Bound ministries every year.

     

With there CD release of “We Will Rise Up” which is filled with catchy guitar hooks and tasteful melodic lines. It’s like driving down the road with the top down and your hair blowing in the wind. It’s not just a band playing music on a stage, but rather a group of people who take you on an adventure through music.

               

Uncut Stones is Christian Music for the non Christian. Their music reaches beyond what contemporary worship music can and it opens up the hearts of those who have not yet experienced the presence of God.
