Biography THE GUY WHO MAKES THE GRAMMYS SAID "I have listened to your cd's several times (you're on our 'play list' here in the shop). I must say I am more than impressed. I am not a fan of "funk" but the way you have infused it with jazz and your incredible voice and delivery I find your music very inspiring. I am always blown away how after all that has been done through years an artist can come up with something so unique and create a 'style' all their own." ~John Billings

  • WHO IS SHE? Why she's skinny, funky, white chocolate! As a native Clevelander, Stone has grown in her grassroots following from grabbing singer/songwriter, to an explosive funky band, to record label owner, to producer. She tours the country non-stop. With her first release, "My Heart" (2001), she made her mark, her sophomore release, "RushMore" (2003), has been catching the media and her third album "Not Finished Yet" is underway and in the mean time, Stone has reased a live solo bootleg called "Robin Stone, Live At The Oakland" and is also working on an EP for marketing to radio and labels. DON'T FORGET THE BRAND NEW LIVE DVD just recorded at Cain Park with Stone's BRAND NEW BAND. It will be released in October of 2007. Stone's campaign has made waves across over 1,000 national and international radio stations, charting along the way. CD's are available in stores and on-line now at!
  • WHAT DOES SHE SOUND LIKE? It's the energy of Dave Matthews delivered with the elegance of Natalie Cole. The pulse of Erykah Badu with the eloquence of Joni Mitchell, add kick in the ass Jill Scott style. She will grab you with her intelligent groove and her incredibly crisp and unique voice.
  • WHY DOES SHE MATTER? Because she is putting on a show you'll remember and making records that stand out from the crowd.
  • WHERE DOES SHE FIT IN? This award winning multi-intrumentalist/ producer/songwriter can jam out an entore 4 hour set, sooth you in an intimate theater, rock a power set at a club, festival, private party or give your country club a fresh step. She has also warmed thousands for names like Jewel and Bonnie Raitt and performs the college and solo circuit. She'll even throw in dessert. Try her on your radio station!
  • WHAT IS SHE DOING? Currently she is recording material for the third album and recently released a live solo CD and is releasing a brand new Live DVD. The She Loves You Records Inc., staff is working on broadening the touring market and keeping the calendar full for 2008. We held a radio campaign for the title track from RushMore entitled "No Fool". It spun well over 1,300 national and international radio stations in January of 2004. She won Best Vocalist in Cleveland in 2007. Her Publicist launched a media blitz that has been very successful in getting the new record covered as well as full coverage in each tour stop. Stone's Distributor/Publisher is expanding the stores that carry Stone's records and heading up a new program to solicit the licensing of Stone's music for Recording, Films and Television. In Fact, Stone's song "Threes" from RushMore is currently being used on a television commercial that will air for the entire 2006 and 2007 year in NE Ohio. Robin Stone herself has added an artist to her record label, Alexis Antes and also produced her newest album, "All Come Down". Stone is also working with her Web Master to keep the site fresh, interesting and interactive. Everyone is busy in SLY town.
  • WHO IS HER BAND? The Robin Stone Band consists of Original P Funk and former Faith Evans bassist, Derrick Davis, former "original Mili Vanili" lead guitarist, Erique Troi, former drummer for Kirk Franklin, The Clarke Sister's and more, Darrel Williams, and we add in percussion and other things as we love to spice it up.

Music's Bottom Line said "[Stone's] voice and guitar playing were flawless, and her stage presence conjured up images of female rockers like Sheryl Crow and Tara McLean."
