Who says that only L.A. and NYC are the best places for music in America? Obviously some grossly misinformed people who haven’t heard Stress on the Rich !
Three members of Stress on the Rich, a young Fort Smith, AR band rocked our socks with their acoustic chops on Friday, July 29th ! WOW, what a micro-set they hit us with.
Lead guitarist Dillon Taylor with Dillon Yother on acoustic bass and Travis Taylor on vocals, brought it TO US in DJAMM studios; playing no less than four of their original songs and teasing us with another ! I say again, WOW ! Doc and the MadMan were alternately choked up with emotion, recovering from cold chills and set back in their studio chairs as these impressive, talented and “together” young folks worked hard.
The guys were so blown away, they didn’t even bother to banter their usual “hows it goin’ ” dialogue. That’s correct; the entire show was dedicated to the music of these four friends who boast their own recording studio and over 60 collectible guitars. OH, and lest one forget, their ages added together wouldn’t equal the speed limit on I-40.
In a special emotional segment, SOTR presented a song they wrote about the late Jarrett Chord Chapman, a Stigler Kindergarten student who succumbed in 2015 after a battle with a rare form of brain tumor. The song, Drive that Train, begins about 51 minutes into the podcast, and appears on the group’s first EP which is named by title in the show.
Tune in for this week’s show and know that music is made here in the foothills of the Ozarks !
