Rock artist and performer Mr. STONEking describes his latest single and video release, a provocative cover of the KISS disco classic “I Was Made For Loving You", as a vampire lullaby. From the album You’re Next!, his diverse musical taste brings a theme and a personal story to each song's note and lyric.
Mr. STONEking draws his theatrical inspiration from AOR (Album Oriented Rock), New Wave, and bands from the '60s,'70s and '80s. A lifetime of experiences — from childhood beginnings conducting a church congregation with his grandmother playing piano, to interning at CBS Records, radio Music Director and club DJ-ing, and a decade of working at the Disney parks — helped shape the musical Mr. STONEking persona.
A family tragedy sidelined Mr. STONEking until a return to education at Antioch University. It was there he met a bassist who introduced him to a studio engineer and multii-instrumentalist.
That turning point brought about a successful collaboration with three studio releases: At The Fire!, Gone Psycho!, and You’re Next! Today, Mr. STONEking continues to intrigue and entertain his audience as a dynamic stage performer, musician, and visual artist.
