Stone Clover was literally born above and Irish pub in downtown Detroit. Front man Pauly Brady formed the band in 2009 while living above the pub his grandparents built, the Old Shillelagh.
The band started out playing music at pubs and events in the Irish community but quickly expanded to larger venues and music festivals. Stone Clover’s original approach to song writing is a melding of pub style tunes mixes with aspects of rock, punk, gypsy, folk, and Americana. They affectionally call this style of their own “Paddy Slag” as it clearly comes from Irish tradition but also has so many other influences as well.
A high energy stage show mixed with anything from fun and fast takes on traditional songs to their own infectious originals is what to expect.
The group consists of Pauly Brady (lead vocals, 6 and 12 string guitars), Marc Brockway (bass), Taylor Izak (violin), James McCue (drums) and Connor Payne (back up vocals, mandolin and accordion).
