In an era when more and more musicians rely on electronics and software to get their art across, it’s refreshing to discover an up-and-coming act that hasn’t forgotten the foundation that rock music was built upon – the electrifying, rip-roaring sound of a real, live band playing together. That’s the exact approach the Raleigh, NC quintet, The Stone Chiefs, adopt on their recently-released debut album, “Drive On” (via Grab ‘Em Records). A mixture of classic rock and southern rock, The Stone Chiefs recall the finer moments of the Black Crowes, the Rolling Stones, and Kings of Leon. Check them out.
