About RB Stone

“A bluesman who has been there and done that. This guy has been down all sorts of gravel roads, often face-first.” – Blues Revue

RB Stone is not who you think he is. Far from the average American bluesman, RB Stone is a man who has lived to tell the tale, whose blood runs thick with the stuff blues and country songs are made of. He’s been called a Blues Cowboy, Country Bluesman, Americana Artist and Roots Rocker, and he answers yes to all.

As a teen, RB left home and joined a 90-man rail gang traveling the Midwest before settling down into blue collar trade work that found him itching for adventure. At 23, he left Ohio with only a truck, some harps, and a guitar and headed to Colorado to work as a cowboy. RB found lodging in a barn on an Indian Reservation in Ignacio where he learned horses by day and taught himself guitar at night. His music-loving parents had instilled in their son a passion for blues and rock and roll, and it finally took hold of him out here in the West, where he began entertaining guests of local outfitters by the campfire. 

RB’s life and career have taken many twists and turns, and he's got both bruises and significant accomplishments to show for it. As an independent musician, he has 18 albums under his belt, has toured 32 countries and five continents, and sold over 40,000 albums at his shows and festivals across the world. He has a song catalog with Gwen Gordy of the Motown Dynasty at EMI. He’s had principal roles in national commercials, appeared in national music videos, and his songs have been recorded by artists such as The Marshall Tucker Band. RB has worked with acts such as Hiroshima and The Charlie Daniels Band. Billboard Magazine honored RB with a songwriting award, and the man's not stopping any time soon.
