stonewall) is the outpouring of the collective creative energies
of Derek Brown and Ken
Callaway, forming a band that spans the spectrum of metal
and hard rock genres as well as venturing into other areas some
metal bands dare to take on. Stōnwall writes, records, mixes,
masters and produces all of their songs in addition to scripting,
filming and editing their own music videos. They also create their
own graphics and artwork. As you can tell, talent abounds with this
duo, and fans in the US and worldwide are starting to take notice.
Stōnwall is also making their presence
felt on the internet via their web presences as well as their songs
being picked up by multiple online radio stations in the US and
Europe. Stōnwall has also been a favorite guest on radio talk
shows and the subject of radio interviews.
Ken and Derek originally met in their former
band Level 13, which Derek was a co founder of, and both were members
of the band for well over half a decade. Level 13 was a staple in
the metal scene in the Southeastern US and garnered a loyal fan
base that turned out in mass to their shows. Level 13 also built
a reputation of never being an opening act at a venue that they
did not headline their next show there.
Now with Stōnwall, the boys are taking
their game to the next level and putting out some of their best
music to date. The band is currently recording their self released
album Martyr. The future is wide open for these two and only time
will tell what it has in store for them.
