They also have a new release getting some heavy airplay on internet radio stations Apollo in the US and RKC in France. 'Stand In Line' is aimed at the wider market with an almost 'power pop' feel to it.....
The Cornerstones have had several different line ups over the last seven years but feel they've now reached the final blend of musical niceness. One constant over the years has been the partnership between singer/songwriter Richard Ruth and lead guitarist and co-writer Dan Bennion. They've been joined by drummer Ryan Pincott and Kyle Radbone on bass to give the band a fuller more current sound.
Another recent release is the heavier 'This Is How It Ends' which has an almost late sixties early seventies feel to it.....shades of The Small Faces (hardly surprising given they cite Marriott and Lane as influences).
After being hailed as London's best kept secret they gained slots with Oasis, Shed 7, Proud Mary and the brilliant Finlay Quaye. They released their debut single, 'Smack Me In The Face' at that time and it achieved airplay on XFM and Radio 1 giving them the impetus to take things further.
So Ralph's advice is get yourself a ticket for the 28th September and take that final step with The Cornerstones on the stairway to (ok not heaven) musical greatness.....in the meantime here's a video of their first gig in 2012 at The Half Moon, Putney.....enjoy!
