The Stephen Stanley Band

Canadian singer-songwriter and guitarist Stephen Stanley is best known from his many years as a founding member, lead guitarist and vocalist with alternative rock band The Lowest of the Low. After years of touring and sharing the stage with the likes of Billy Bragg, The Violent Femmes, The Jayhawks and Lloyd Cole, a gold record for their “genuinely timeless album” (Exclaim!) Shakespeare My Butt, Stanley now leads his own band, The Stephen Stanley Band and has logged other monumental shows with Bob Mould, Cracker and Jake Clemons.

The band also played at the 2018 Static Roots Festival in Germany and then went on to tour the UK and Ireland.  Americana UK described the band's 2018 album Jimmy & The Moon (Wolfe Island Records) and Stephen's artistry this way: “The songs are big and bold, unafraid, unashamed to flaunt their heritage… Stanley’s voice being not a thing of beauty but a workman’s tool skillfully used to create just the right effect...” The band is currently finishing up the follow-up record to Jimmy & the Moon, slated for release in fall 2022.

  • Stephen Stanley: Songs, Vocals, 6 & 12 String Electric & Acoustic Guitars
