Stillwater Black came together in 1991 when Chris Thayer met Ahmed and Sam Pierstorff while playing in the pit band for a high school musical production. Issac McCorkell was quickly recruited on drums and the band recorded its first EP, The Last Virtuous Lady of Athens.

In 1995 they signed with Cleaves Entertainment, a now-defunct independent label based out of Southern California's Inland Empire. Stillwater Black recorded their debut LP, Adam. They played frequently with local and national acts including Dishwalla, Save Ferris, Reel Big Fish, and IE punk/ska mainstays, The Skeletones.

In 1997 the members parted ways and the project lay dormant for two decades.

Finished the arrangement, we have.

We cemented the Longshot arrangement along with the lyrics and vocal melody. Still working out the harmonies and instrumentation. Hand him an axe, and you know Chris is a madman. You may not know that he's also a Jedi behind the mixing console.

This is going to be amazing.
