Ez Stone (pronounced Ez as in fez) is a singer-songwriter from Brighton. He released his debut EP ‘Moroccan Whiskey’ in November 2013 via TLS Records. The EP showcases Ez’s intricate guitar work and his ability to tell a story with his songs. https://t.co/zeFaNY84xc
As a taster of what’s to come Ez had a BBC Introducing session filmed choosing to play from a new set of songs ‘Spare No Change’. http://youtu.be/Q0S72iDzF7A
The debut EP has had a good response from reviewers, radio DJs and fans; with song 'Old Man Soul' winning the Amazing Radio Audition Poll and being play-listed by the station as well as support from a host of local stations. The EP was premiered a week before it’s release by Folk Radio UK and generated over 6,000 plays of his songs.
After a busy run of live dates supporting the likes of George Ezra, John Smith, Nathaniel Rateliff and Lily & Madeleine, 23 year old Ez is slowly spreading his wings and playing shows further afield with the likes of Jake Isaac, Bridie Jackson & The Arbour and Rhodes, as well as some summer festival appearances, including Hop Farm and YouBloom in Dublin and more live dates to be announced soon.
"With talent, and the right ears, there is always a national and international audience out there. Embarking on the path to extend his audience beyond his native Brighton is Ez Stone. His Fluid and complex guitar work combined with his slightly ethereal voice mark him out as something above the standard "singer-songwriter" label that could be waiting for him."

"beyond the calibre of what you’d normally hear on a debut release, he has a natural ability for crafting his songs, not just the words but also the musical arrangements which are in a class of their own."

"It’s gentle, it’s torturously sad, but it’s unceasingly beautiful. At parts I can hear echoes of John Mayer, but it’s much more subtle than any sort of direct comparison."
