Stone Blind Valentine is the acoustic project of longtime Chicago musicians Emily Hurd, Colby Maddox, and Gregg Ostrom. Gritty lyrics and unruly guitar get a layer of polish from bright mandolin and sharp fiddle licks. The group treads on bluegrass while digging into rock and early American country. The band recorded their first album--Burn Like A Field--live at Chicago's King Size Sound Labs.

Like all good mountain music, SBV builds their tunes with strong singing, nature imagery, and a lot of twang, but their Chicago roots are unmistakable in Burn Like A Field. The bluesy guitar and industrial groove in "Extra Extra" thump defiantly as Hurd belts out "Honey, I can read you like the Sunday Morning Times; I can see you're lying by the headlines in your eyes." The group sings in three-part harmony about broke city days in "Crown The Kings," and "Whiskey Neat" sounds like late-night Bourbon Street in the summer.

The songs on Burn Like A Field were penned by Hurd, the lead vocalist, piano and banjo player. The tunes were brought to life by Gregg Ostrom (guitar, vocals) and Colby Maddox (mandolin, fiddle, guitar, and vocals). SBV called on close friend and producer John Abbey to play upright bass on the album.

The make their Texas debut on March 28th at The Bugle Boy
