Astounding three part harmonies, matchless energy and rhythms that move you to the core are a few of the reasons The Stables are so quickly becoming a widespread name. Surprisingly, their big sound comes from instruments that may have you wondering what time period your concert ticket just entered you in. A wash-tub bass accompanied by a kit with a suitcase kick-drum may look simple, but when combined with the banjo, acoustic guitar and mouth-harp, it’s nothing short of an explosive resonance when this trio takes this stage.
It all began around a fire, along side a small lake in south-eastern Ontario, Canada when three long time friends resolved to embark on a musical journey together. For over ten years Aaron “Blind Billy” Blasko, Darren Clarke and Poor Pelly were admired and respected singer-songwriters on the Durham music circuit. After a couple of attempts of amalgamating with other local talent, the trio came to recognize the magic that transpired from their shared energies coming together musically. With their creative vigor comes a comradeship that combines to deliver to their audiences a show not to be forgotten.
The Stables (a name derived many concepts) have been placed into numerous musical genres, and rightfully so; their sound encompasses all facets from folk to bluegrass to punk. The Stables are fronted by three singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalists who each have a style unto their own; thus creating the unique sound that is The Stables. As quoted by Lonely Vagabond, “…rousing folk-country trio, a high energy sonic hoedown, catchy, charming, the spirit of steamrolling along the backwoods of the south, in our own backyard.” It’s The Stables eclectic vibe, in addition to their incredible talent that has grabbed the attention of music professionals and audiences alike.
The Stables are currently in Cobra Headquarters Recording Studio putting the finishing touches on their debut album due for release in early spring.
