Canadian singer-songwriter and guitarist Stephen Stanley is best known from his many years as a founding member, lead guitarist and vocalist with alternative rock band The Lowest of the Low. After years of touring and sharing the stage with the likes of Billy Bragg, The Violent Femmes, The Jayhawks and Lloyd Cole, a gold record for their “genuinely timeless album” (Exclaim!) Shakespeare My Butt, Stanley now leads his own band, The Stephen Stanley Band and has logged other monumental shows with Bob Mould, Cracker and Jake Clemons.
The Ropes is grounded in the trio's love of a myriad of music and poetry, especially the works of folk and soul artists of the early 70's. Brown relates something indelible BB King told him when he and Fenner were touring with the legendary musician in 2002 - " You know Chris, people call my music blues, but when I was growing up, I wasn't playing county, or blues, or jazz or folk...I was playing music. It was all music, and the way it came to me I did not dispute" .
