at the STONEHOUSE

(across from the North Stamford Congregational Church)

members for renowned country artists, including Rodney Atkins, Brooks & Dunn, Brett Eldredge,
Faith Hill, Jewel, Rose Falcon, Jaida Dreyer, Mallory Hope and others.
In stark contrast to their role in the country music industry, the progressive pop/rock trio
