New Orleans based guitarist, bandleader and WWOZ radio host Marc Stone started off 2014 in style with a series of high profile shows in New Orleans and the release of his new EP "The Well". Featuring four new original compositions. "The Well" showcases Stone's long history in the Louisiana Roots music world. Shades of Blues, Funk. Gospel & Swamp Pop color the songs as contributions from Papa Mali, members of Honey Island Swamp Band & Galactic add their magic to recordings. The EP was produced in part with a grant from the Threadhead Cultural Foundation and is a first taste of Stone's full length follow up to his 2010 Threadhead Record release "Trickeration & Rascality", which was chosen for consideration by NARAS for Grammy in the Best Contemporary Blues category.

In addition to touring and recording as an artist, Stone has produced and acted as musical director for projects featuring artists including Walter "Wolfman" Washington, the Campbell Brothers, Betty Harris, Anders Osborne, Alvin "Youngblood" Hart, Benny Turner, Terrance Simien, Kirk Joseph, Roger Lewis, Rockin' Dopsie Jr., Bruce "Sunpie" Barnes, Shannon McNally and many others. He has also worked as guitarist for legends including Eddie Bo, Ernie K-Doe, Henry Gray, C.J. Chenier, Tommy Ridgely, Marva Wright and Marcia Ball. This year Stone will bring an all-star group of 15 Blues and Zydeco musicians to Europe for a special appearance, as well touring the US and Europe as a solo and with his various duos and groups.
