Feather And Stone's Biography:
Feather And Stone is from the St. Louis, Missouri. Drummer and Bass Guitarist, Charles and Alex Baldwin, are in fact brothers that grew up playing in a band with their Father, John Baldwin. John had grown up playing in many local rock bands throughout the early 70's and 80's, including Rogue, Broken Arrow, and Baccus. Over the years, He introduced young Charles and Alex to popular blues music of the past two decades and eventually formed rhythm and blues band with them while they we barely in their very early teenage years. Alex, only being 13 years old when he began playing live shows. The guitarist and vocalist of the group, Paul Scimone, is actually their cousin. Paul grew up learning various tunes on his with the influence of John, Charles, and Alex. Paul was also inspired to be a singer by his step father, Rodney Kalina. Rodney was in fact the vocalist in the Baldwin Family Band, known as "One Love."
Young Paul grew up listening to his close family members play out at local venues. In his early teens, he had a few small groups of his own in which he played bass guitar, but eventually gave up on live performance until his later teens. Paul began write his own songs eventually. He played in a local St. Louis Band, Charley Chann, before moving to Nashville TN. to pursue acts such as "The Red ThRed." Upon a trip home to St. Louis, he played guitar with the family for virtually the first time as a full band. A bond of musical interest was immediately formed that only family ties can inspire. Shortly thereafter, He moved back to St. Louis and a band was formed. This band, "Human Capitol," which still included John Baldwin and Rodney Kalina, mainly played cover tunes at local bars and pubs. It was at this time, in 2009, that Feather And Stone first started to write original tunes and perform together.
Feather And Stone writes their tunes collaboratively, with all three members contributing to every facet of the songs in different ways. In a time when music has become overproduced, trite, and pop-culture driven, they have taken it upon themselves to stay true to the songwriting techniques of the 60's and 70's. Influences include: The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Love, The Kinks, The Who, Jimi Hendrix and The Experience, Cream, The Sex Pistols, The White Stripes, Kings of Leon, Oasis, The Allman Brothers, Albert King, Stevie Wonder, The Black Keys, The Meters, The James Gang, Rush, The Vines, The Doors, Arctic Monkeys, Arcade Fire, Death From Above 1979, King Khan and The Shrines, Prince, Neil Young, The Police, Radiohead, Spacehog, Supergrass, Michael Jackson, Modest Mouse and many many more…
