“Rock N Roll isn’t supposed to save your soul. It’s supposed to make you sweat.”
That’s what Stocklyn is all about. The brainchild of rock-guitar virtuoso Will Boreing, Stocklyn bypasses heart and goes for the gut. Stocklyn is swampy. Stocklyn is loud. Stocklyn plays without inhibition or shame.
Led by Boreing’s blistering guitar and powerhouse voice and fortified by Davis Draughon’s driving bass and Blake Vera’s concussive drums, this rock trio gets sweaty – and dares their audience to do the same.
The band has played with such acts as Scott Weiland and The Wildabouts, Highly Suspect, Blondfire, Last International, Bowling for Soup, Jackyl, and Stone Foxes.
They have played sold out shows from Los Angeles to New York City, bringing their authentic, explosive sound to such iconic venues as The Viper Room (LA), Blue Light Live (Lubbock), Mercy Lounge (Nashville), El Rey Theatre (LA), Southport Hall (New Orleans), Gramercy Theatre (New York City), and many more.
The band’s first, self-titled EP was produced by Grammy Award winner David Hodges on his Sleepwalker Records label. The EP captures the fire and energy that Stocklyn transmits on stage. It’s a recording with sultry vocals and unforgettable guitar riffs from Will Boreing that is a definite “do not miss”.
As Thomas D. Mooney wrote in New Slang, “They’re an audacious guitar driven strut. It’s loud, sweaty, near the edge of excess, and on the cusp of chaos; it’s the way rock and roll was meant to be played.”
You do not want to take Stocklyn lightly. You can’t. It’s a Rock band that will grab you, make you raise your fist, and yell for more.
No saccharine. No sentimentality.
We’re Stocklyn. We play Rock N Roll, and we mean it.
