Stone Age Man
With a writing style that encompasses folk, jazz, blues, rock and cabaret influences, Stone Age Man is an act that defies easy description. Compared at times to Frank Zappa, Tom Waits and Gogol Bordello, audiences are left spellbound by the twists and turns of a Stone Age Man show.
Formed by Greg Paul Stone in late 2014 at the completion of a lengthy solo recording project, Stone Age Man are a unique and highly entertaining band who display great musical depth in a line up that features some of the finest players in Ottawa/Gatineau.
Since forming, Stone Age Man have released 2 EPs and performed at venues and festivals in Canada and Australia including Ottawa Bluesfest, CityFolk and TaDa! Festival where they provided a live original score to the Theatre Wakefield production "Who Loves Ya Baby?".
Stone Age Man are currently recording a new album for release in 2020.
