Biography

With their hearts in the Deep
South of America and their guitar riffs influenced by metal and grunge, Black
Stone Cherry sounded like a cross between Lynyrd Skynyrd and Black Sabbath. Formed
in Kentucky in 2001 the band included guitarist and vocalist Chris Robertson,
guitarist Ben Wells, bass player Jon Lawhon, and John Fred Young (the son of
Kentucky Headhunters' guitarist Richard Young) on drums. The band gigged
extensively, furiously thrashing their way across the States and into Europe in
support of their debut album, 2006’s Black Stone Cherry. Embraced by an
ever-growing fan base, tour slots accompanying arena rockers like Def Leppard paved
the way for festival appearances at Download in 2008 and 2009. Recorded with
Ozzy Osbourne and Alice Cooper producer Bob Marlette, 2008’s Folklore and
Superstition
cracked the top 30 in both the UK and the US, buoyed by the
singles “Blind Man”, “Please Come In”, and “Soulcreek”. 2011’s
Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea garnered a nomination for a
Classic Rock Award. After touring with, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bad Company, they
began work on their fourth album Magic Mountain, which dropped in 2014.
The album reached number 4 in the UK Albums Chart. They returned in 2015 with their
fifth album Kentucky. The 2018 EP Black to Blues featured covers
of songs by legends like Willie Dixon and Freddie King. For 2020’s The Human Condition,
the band eschewed their live approach in the studio and explored new
techniques, leading to their most sonically meticulous LP to that point.
