In 2015, Indiana based songwriter Kevin Krauter recorded his debut EP, Magnolia, while attending school in Muncie, IN. The songs were a collection of old demos thrown together into a six-song EP for a friend's semester project. A year later, the same friend approached Krauter with the idea for another six-song project. This time, Krauter had been writing new songs over the past year with the intention of releasing them together on an album.
What resulted was Changes, a cohesive collection of songs that range a multitude of influences from Bossa Nova to Americana. Changes was Krauter’s first attempt at writing and recording a set of songs that flow together thematically while maintaining their own distinctive sound and feeling. The EP was released in December 2016 via Bloomington, IN label Winspear.
Arriving in the summer of 2018 via the Brooklyn, NY label Bayonet Records, comes Kevin Krauter's debut LP Toss Up.
Stone Irr is the product of a special kind of Midwestern religious folk. Just start with the name: what seems like an obvious pun was, in fact, an honest mistake, and as soon as Stone's parents found out, they offered to take him to the Lafayette, Indiana courthouse and change it. He was already in middle school. True story.
