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.

Drum day 12/10/17

We got together yesterday. It was our longest single session in awhile. Issac put down drums for two more new songs giving us a total of five new pieces of music to work through over the coming weeks.

That's great news, but we're not really sure about next steps. Do we just keep releasing singles as we finish each song? Do we hold off and maybe release an EP? Do we hold off even longer until we have enough for a full record?

We're gonna' keep talking that over. If you've got thoughts, be sure and comment here or on any of our social media platforms: FacebookInstagramTwitter, and SoundCloud.
