The last song, “I Master” is another winner

Damian Cousins, The Dallas Metal Examiner and Amps & Green Screens

The last song, “I Master” is another winner, Muldoon growling a bit over a serving of Wiggins’ hot licks. Jeff then says, “What the hell? I should just deliver a furious solo to close this thing out in style!” (I don’t know if he really said that, but the solo is REALLY good!) Holy shit, THIS is a fucking rock song!! THIS is a fucking rock album! Stone Soul Foundation are unsigned as I write this, but that should change very quickly. One spin of Electric Valley, and I think you’ll agree.” Damian Cousins, The Dallas Metal Examiner and Amps & Green Screens

Jim Gilbert, Upstate Metal

Auburn stoner metal band, Stone Soul Foundation, took the stage and as far as I was concerned, this could have been the start of the touring bands. The quality of performances from this point forward made the cost of admission worth it at twice the price. This dread-lead hard rockin’ gang of misfits had great vocals, guitar licks, and the drummer set an energetic pace." Jim Gilbert, Upstate Metal

STONE SOUL FOUNDATION - ELECTRIC VALLEY

http://ampsandgreenscreens.com/

There are bands that have a distinct throwback feel/sound/look sometimes, and then there are those that maybe just show a tinge of their influences. Stone Soul Foundation doesn't fit either description. Their sound has shades of rock and roll's founding fathers, but you just can't call them a throwback band, despite the back-in-the-day analog warmth of this recording that is Electric Valley. I got it recently from Shauna over at New Ocean Media. We've only been friends a short time, but she's gotten very good very fast at picking out stuff I would like. When she sends me something, I know I'm in for a treat, and this band is no exception.

"From start to finish this record is sheer rock perfection!"

Rock N Roll Experience

"Electric Valley"

Grooves, Hooks, Style, Great Tone....the latest release from Stone Soul Foundation has all of the above coupled with rock n roll fire & great guitar solos!

I popped this disc in & was blown away by the first few seconds simply because the band reminds me of old Black Sabbath, Trouble & even a little bit of Deep Purple....the twin guitar attack sounds soooo damn good and the vocals of Sean Muldoon on top of it all makes it absolute stoner rock perfection!

It's rare that an independent release captures my attention like this because usually the overall packaging lacks something but this record kicks ass, it sounds amazing and I give the band total props because they sound like a road perfected machine that knows who they are & the true beauty of the band is that they are actually solid players and they take their music to another level with solid playing, good writing & catchy hooks.

From start to finish this record is sheer rock perfection!

VENTS Magazine interview Oct 2013 w/Sean.

So why don't you introduce yourself and can you tell us more about yourself? Hey, I'm Sean Muldoon, lead vocalist, and lyricist for the hard rock group STONE SOUL FOUNDATION. I'm tempted to make a joke, and tell you my astrological sign, and make up a weird hobby that I enjoy such as building energy efficient birdhouses, but I wont. The fact is, I'm a guy who loves creating songs, and performing my guts out on stage.

Sean Muldoon on lead vocals, Dan Dennis and Jeff Wiggins on guitar, Doug Paradise on bass and Shane Stillman on drums roll their rock around in funk and sprinkle some tasty soul on top.

Auburn's Stone Soul Foundation sent us their debut...

Rochester Free Times

Auburn's Stone Soul Foundation sent us their debut CD, Into the Flames, and it was certainly burning with energy! A blistering mix of funk, soul and rock, the five-piece is led by the impassioned vocals of Sean Muldoon, in a sort of stoner-meets-headbanger fashion. Adding psychedelic elements to the blend makes it that much cooler and Stone Soul Foundation do it all with grand aplomb, creating a Grand Funk meets Chili Peppers meets Cream concoction.

Sammy Award (Syracuse Area Music Award) include Auburn-based band Stone Soul Foundation.

The Citizen
