Innervisions – Mavis Staples + Stone Foundation
+ special guest support: STONE FOUNDATION
Mavis Staples’ recording career spans from the 1950s to the current day. In the ’60s her band The Staple Singers were heavily aligned with the burgeoning American Civil Rights movement, she also dated Bob Dylan for many years and her songs have been covered by The Rolling Stones. Throughout the ’70s Mavis had huge hits with tracks such as Respect yourself, I’ll take you there and Let’s do it again. Mavis Staples is widely credited as one of the greatest Gospel Soul voices of all time. She is a Hall Of Fame inductee and had a huge UK hit Nina Cried Power last year with Hozier. Following two sell out dates at Innervisions 2018, Mavis is back in 2019, by popular demand.
Stone Foundation have raised the bar higher once again with their stunning new studio album “Everybody, Anyone”.
“Everybody, Anyone” features 11 new songs and a sprinkling of guest musicians including Kathryn Williams, Dr Robert, Mick Talbot, Steve White, & the Average White Band’s Hamish Stuart. And unable to stay away, Paul Weller (who produced and featured on the last album) sneaks back in with a bit of piano, guitar and BVs on a couple of tracks.
The Midlands based band’s 5th studio album was recorded at Paul Weller’s Black Barn Studios in Surrey and produced by Stone Foundation founding members Neil Jonesand Neil Sheasby.
