An effortless blend of cool country, simmering soul, swampy psychedelia, and biting barroom brawn.


Stonetrotter was formed in Barrie, Ontario in 2012 by 5 musicians seeking a common goal. Since that time they have released 2 EP’s and 1 LP independently. Stonetrotter has travelled across Southern Ontario playing with a diverse array of artists like The Woodshed Orchestra, Cuff the Duke and Born Ruffians. This will be their 4th In the Soil Arts Festival!

“Styles are seamlessly integrated to create a unique sound that puts a twist on the usual indie folk” via The Cardinal Press

“From whatever perspective you approach The Truth Don’t Look the Same to Me and You, the truth is you’ll find eloquence, grace, and beauty in abundance. That’s a fact.” (Stonetrotter’s The Truth Don’t Look the Same to Me and You EP [2014])
-Jim Di Gioia, Quick Before It Melts

“The songs on What’s Goin’ On (With My Love)?, Stontrotter’s first EP, are so beautifully constructed you’ll want to put them in a frame and hang them on your wall.” (Stonetrotter’s What’s Goin’ On (With My Love)? EP [2013])
