Jonathan Stolber is a British composer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter & producer from Fleet, Hampshire. On moving to the East Midlands of the UK, Stolber spent a few years playing live electronic performances supporting the likes of, Her Name Is Calla, Guillemots & 65 Days Of Static.
Stolber went on to write and front the acclaimed East Midlands cinematic art-rock outfit "To Bury A Ghost." The bands debut "The Hurt Kingdom" was produced by sonic guru Russ Russell (Wildhearts) and received widespread critical praise from the likes of the 405 & Echoes & Dust.
Playing their debut live show for Goldflakepaint, Stolber became a twice-nominated BBC Introducing artist before being selected by the BBC to represent Northamptonshire music at their Abbey Road Masterclass Session.
After disbanding, Stolber has been busy DIY recording at his remote countryside studio 'Outpost 13.' Early 2020 Stolber reached out to Leeds uber producer James Kenosha (Grammatics, Dry The River) to mix his fervent debut solo offering.
Piano Day 2020 saw the debut Holy Road track release "The Minotaur" to raise cash for mental health awareness charity https://tinychanges.com. An instrumental cinematic appetite teaser, the track was selected for inclusion on the Nils Frahm curated official Piano Day Playlist.
Stolber has spent lockdown putting final touches to his debut EP release "An Unshakable Demon." Mixed by Manchester based guitar icon & legendary audio engineer Steve Durose (Oceansize, Vennart, Amplifier), the record features a cavalcade of Stolber's favourite musicians including Chris Duffin (Drahla, Viriginia Wing), James Saddington (EaststrikeWest, The Bridesmaid) & Ben Weedon (Maybeshewill).
Mastered by Frank Arkwright (Mogwai) at Abbey Road, An Unshakable Demon will be released 24/09/2021 across all streaming services with a limited physical vinyl pressed by Austin Signal.
The Debut Single "Coming Up For Air" Culled from the EP is due for general release 27/08/2021. The track features crushed, trip-hop drums that lock into a dingy, Goldfrapp esque fuzzy bass hook as Stolbers ghostly, indelible falsetto floats over bewitched, down-tempo machinery. The Kubrick influenced video depicts the subtle horror of a vacant, post-Covid world.
With the pandemic pausing live shows for the time being, Stolber has used the opportunity to make steady progress recording the debut Holy Road LP "For The Blood Of England" with a double digital single release planned for early Winter 2021.
