Stone Mountain Station, Travis Nilan, The Stewart Dolly

Stone Mountain Station

Stone Mountain Station is a rock band from New York City. Keyboardist and vocalist Mark Ciani founded the band in 2011, after he had finished writing a bunch of songs that would have fit quite well on the Band's self-titled album. He and four others, including drummer Matt Musty and bassist Ryan Gleason, recorded four of those songs in January 2012 and released as their first EP Victory Avenue. Now cooking with gas, Mark, Matt, and Ryan recruited Matt and Ryan's Berklee college buddy, guitarist Alvaro Kapaz, and the four of them quickly recorded and release a second EP, Sundown at High Noon.

While both EPs were excellent facsimiles of some of the band's favorite artists, Mark's voice was quite limited and, to make the mind-blowing noises Mark was hearing in his head, the band needed to add some young blood to the band. Enter Dan Sussman and Gina Tolentino. Guitarist Dan Sussman provides Stone Mountain Station with a rhythmic anchor that frees Mark and Alvaro to produce beautiful melodies and hooks. He also is a gifted songwriter in his own right. Lead singer Gina Tolentino has a transcendent voice that appeals to virtually every human on the planet and most other mammals as well. With the addition of Gina and Dan, the band is ready to take off.

Travis Nilan

Travis Nilan is an emerging artist based out of New York City who plays throughout the tri-state area. "The Bedroom Sessions" - written, recorded, and produced by Travis - is a satisfying example of his solo work. An eclectic songwriter, Travis maintains a multifaceted sound while staying true to his love for catchy melodies and dynamic performance.

THE BAND:

Drums - Jeff Fernandes

The Stewart Dolly

The Stewart Dolly is an original alternative rock power trio from New Jersey. Originally formed in 2007, we went through a number of lineup changes before arriving at our current, most potent line up. The members are Bob (guitar/vox), Byron (bass/vox), Johnny (drums), and Eric (guitar/vox).

We have written dozens of songs that display tight song structures, harmonized vocals, and catchy hooks. We have also performed shows in New Jersey, including The Court Tavern and The Stone Pony, as well as some out of state shows. Notable influences include Weezer, the Pixies, and Pavement. Currently, we are in the process of self-recording our second album to be released in the summer of 2013.
