About The First Stone
The First Stone is an eclectic culmination of working-class musicians based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Their sound is best described indie-folk-rock infused with funk. TFS is led by front man Brian Kelly on guitar and vocals. Brian has spent time in Chattanooga, TN., Athens and Augusta, GA as a solo artist and with other full band projects (Drive South, Tony Kick). Dave “Danger” Baranik keeps the groove alive on bass while Aubrey Bailey balances it all out on percussion and drums. Dave has played with bands such as Swoon 19 and The Funktron Bomb. Aubrey’s musical past includes bands such as Bound and Great White Dolemite. TFS officially formed in early 2008 after they pinpointed each other on Craigslist Ads. After contemplating what they should do for a practice space; they compromised and built the “home office studio” in Brian’s garage where they recorded their first EP with Atlanta Live Recording which is now available. After the EP was completed the band brought in guitar player Nate Kieser who hails from Peoria, IL and has performed all across the country. He brings unique guitar riffs and a killer sound to the band. You'll hear a lot of Nate on the new record. He is a real talent. The First Stone has just completed their first full length album at Southern Tracks Studios here in Atlanta. "Quarter to Never" is now available through the band's myspace page.
