Stone Blind Valentine
Stone Blind Valentine celebrates the debut of "Burn Like A Field."
SBV, as Stone Blind Valentine is known in short, is the acoustic project of longtime Chicago musicians Emily Hurd, Colby Maddox, and Gregg Ostrom.
Gritty lyrics and unruly guitar get a layer of polish from bright mandolin and sharp fiddle licks. The group treads on bluegrass while digging into the heavy kind of rhythms that made Levon Helm famous. Call it Alt. Bluegrass, call it Americana, or future classic rock and roll; it's got great lyrics, a groove, and you can dance to it.
SBV recorded "Burn Like A Field" at Chicago's King Size Sound Labs.
