STONEY CREEK - Band Bio

STONEY CREEK has been praised as "Mainstream Bluegrass at its Best" by Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine. The band was named "West Virginia's Classic Bluegrass Band" by Around the Panhandle Magazine. Frank Jurney of the Berryville Bluegrass Series has noted that "Libby [Files] is among the rising number of female vocalists who are making a big impact on bluegrass music."

In 2016, Stoney Creek released "Memories & Tears", a new album of original material featuring the music of Deanna Stottlemyer. "Memories & Tears" was released to radio broadcasters, and the album went to #1 on AirPlay Direct's Top 50 Albums chart. The album's 11 tracks also held the top 11 spots on AirPlay Direct's Top 50 Singles chart. Music videos have been released for singles "Come Stay Awhile" and "Never Tell Me". Songs and videos from the project can be heard at StoneyCreekBluegrass.net

"Memories & Tears" is the first project to feature Stoney Creek's current lineup, including Libby Files on vocals and bass, Brett Smeltzer on mandolin and vocals, Kenton Catlett on guitar and vocals, and Troy Stangle on banjo, dobro and vocals.

Stoney Creek's albums have gained airplay in over 400 radio markets in the United States and internationally. The band has released several music videos in national rotation. “Are You Ready?” was named “best gospel CD of the year” in 2012 by KCBL Bluegrass Backroads. “Hot Off the Press” (2010) was a mainstay on the Roots Music Report Bluegrass charts for more than a year. Stoney Creek has performed in direct support of top artists including Loretta Lynn, Doyle Lawson, the Grascals, Dailey & Vincent, and Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper. Stoney Creek has appeared twice at the Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival, where the band was joined onstage by “the Queen of Bluegrass” Rhonda Vincent for a gospel performance.

 


 

LIBBY FILES - bass and vocals

Stoney Creek was founded by bassist and vocalist Libby Files. "Libby is among the rising number of female vocalists who are making a huge impact on bluegrass music" - Berryville Bluegrass Series promoter Frank Jurney.

  BRETT SMELTZER - mandolin and vocals

Brett spent several years touring and recording with one of Maryland's premiere bluegrass acts, Jack Sanbower and the No Leeway Band. Brett is also a bluegrass broadcaster, serving as host of "Bluegrass Retrospect" on The Bluegrass Jamboree on Friday evenings. Brett endorses Davis Mandolins and MBC Custom Straps.

 

  TROY STANGLE - banjo, dobro and vocals

Troy previously played banjo and dobro with All4Hym, who recorded on the Rural Rhythm Christian label. Troy also played and recorded with Nickel Misery Bluegrass Band. His stage and studio experience made Troy a logical pick for Stoney Creek.

"Troy displays a vast array of versatility and uniqueness in his banjo skills," according to the band's mandolin player Brett Smeltzer. "He is a veteran with a musical talent that is not overpowering, but what audiences will appreciate and find very pleasing to the ear. It's great to have Troy on board with Stoney Creek."

 

KENTON CATLETT - guitar and vocals

"When I was first getting into bluegrass music nearly 30 years ago, Kenton was the first person that I started playing music with ... rather quickly focusing on both harmonies and arrangement," according to Brett Smeltzer.

Smeltzer and Files agree that "over the past few years, Kenton has been a reliable source to help out Stoney Creek with his vocal and guitar skill on an 'as needed' basis. It is great to know that we have that same commitment from him now on a full-time basis."
