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.

I've Just Seen a Face

This was a blast to record.

A highlight of our old live sets, we jammed out this 1965 Beatles standard over a couple of hours on a Saturday as an expression of our gratitude for pushing longshot over the 1000-play mark.

Although the official release isn't until 12/12/17, blog subscribers already have their copy. Don't forget to subscribe so you can get free stuff, too!

Thank you and enjoy:
