About The Blue Stones
With a rousing blues-rock approach that touches on both classic rock and sleek modern alt-rock, Canadian guitar and drums duo The Blue Stones cut their teeth around their native Ontario. Friends and bandmates since their high school days in Windsor, Tarek Jafar (vocals, guitar, piano) and Justin Tessier (drums, vocals) landed on the minimalist guitar-and-drums format early on, taking inspiration from the classic rock of Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix, blues icons like Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf, and more contemporary heroes with a similar set-up like the White Stripes and the Black Keys. At the beginning of 2018, the band signed a deal with Entertainment One who gave their debut album, Black Holes, a worldwide re-release. The Blue Stones toured on the back of this album extensively throughout North America and Europe. The album landed the band a Juno nomination for Breakthrough Artist of the Year in 2020. The duo went into the studio with producer Paul Meany to record 2021's Hidden Gems. The lead single, ‘Shakin’ Off The Rust,’ was awarded Rock Song of the Year in 2021 by SOCAN and was the most spun song at Rock Radio in Canada.
