Nine Stones Close is the solo project of Ade Jones, guitarist and songwriter with Lie Big.
The music is more progressive in nature than Lie Big and encompasses many of my other influences, much of which would not fit easily onto a Lie Big album. The musical direction draws from more progressive influences such as Porcupine Tree and Pink Floyd as well as harder edged rock and metal to create a wide range of soundscapes and songs to convey the music's message.
The debut album, St-Lo is based around a near death experience in my life and the feelings and dreams induced during that traumatic event. The music is layered and arranged to try to recreate the mixture of terror, fear and dreamlike detachment from the events as they unfolded and to convey that uneasiness to the listener.
The album is somewhat an exorcism of some personal ghosts and an outpouring of emotional debris into the music and lyrics.
The result is an ebb and flow of musical pieces from light to dark and soft to heavy. Hope you enjoy the experience!
