Folk Rock  // For Fans of: Caamp, The Avett Brothers, Lil Smokies, Oliver Hazard, Tyler Childers

With roots embedded in the Colorado Rocky Mountains and a sound unhinged in the capital of Texas, Shovelin Stone makes music almost as unique as the friendship it stems from. A shared passion for old-timey bluegrass brought Makenzie and Zak together, but it’s the unknowing joy for the moment and the obsession with the complications that life brings that continue to push the duo forward. With heartfelt lyrics and unique musical composition, the indie-folk sound that projects from these two is not only going to get the audience thinking but also moving on their feet.

With the addition of multi-talented bassist and cellist Russick Smith, Shovelin Stone put out their first self-titled album recorded by Grammy-winning producer PJ Olsson of the Alan Parsons Project, in his state-of-the-art recording studio in beautiful Winter Park, Colorado. Now, this power trio is eager to spread the word. With songs about longing, love, and the hunger to be heard in this big world, it is hard not to relate to these three on their quest for success. The road is winding but one thing is for sure that with these three at the wheel it’s going to be a wild ride.

We hug before and after every show. It’s all about having a good time!
