“The explosive brass sections, bombastic lead vocals, and vocal screeching from White culminate into a sound so unlike anything else in the indie scene right now. ‘Groove Thang’ is undoubtedly one of the best independent records thus far in 2017. Inspired heavily by blues, dance, funk, rock, and pop, the performer has a particularly unique sound unto himself that has garnered him attention and accolades in the indie community. Frankly, there may not be any other artist in the scene that sounds quite like Stone White, which is an extreme rarity.” – The Independent Spotlight
