Georgia's Stevie Tombstone embodies the essence of a true troubadour. His music is a potent blend of folk, classic country, and vintage blues influences. Have Mercy On Me is his hotly anticipated new EP.
With his new EP, Have Mercy On Me, Stevie Tombstone has made a remarkable comeback. Most of the tracks were recorded in Black Mountain, N.C., and feature some of the most talented and respected members of the western Carolina music community. Included on the record are a few updated versions of previously recorded songs which make them sound even more powerful than the originals. Additionally, the new compositions are inspired by recent life events which have found their way into his songs, offering an honest glimpse into the life of a troubadour. While each arrangement complements the song, there's a common theme of Appalachian roots running through the music. These new songs reveal Tombstone's journey of overcoming adversity through his songwriting. Instruments like the pedal steel, banjo, and fiddles add depth to the music without overshadowing the heartfelt lyrics and emotions.
Following a fortuitous encounter with Roy Acuff during his youth, a meeting that left a lasting impression, Tombstone was certain that his path would always lead him to a life in music. Hailing from Georgia, Tombstone delved deep into the world of rock and the underground music scene of 1980s Atlanta. Yet, amidst his musical exploration, he never abandoned the twang of his Southern roots. Now, three decades later, Tombstone has evolved into a well-rounded artist, boasting talents as a performer, songwriter, and guitarist. He has also been an integral part of the music scenes in Atlanta and Austin at various points in his journey, with his hat now hung in Western North Carolina.

For this outing Tombstone has produced a stripped back sound that is centred by his heartfelt and hall-marked vocals. These are songs drawn from deep inside a soul that has seen the voraciousness of life and how it manages to uplift and also, on occasion, crush the spirit that is central to us all.

A real troubadour. A TRUEbadour. Stevie Tombstone plays 250 live shows a year. Always on the road, following his calling. When he is home, whenever that is, he hangs his hat in Austin Texas. His music is raw and very personal. He lives the life, he doesn’t just sing about it. I have heard him called a “musician’s musician”. I never really understood that term completely. I guess it can be interpreted as he should be more popular and recognized, but only musicians are smart enough to realize how good he is. Maybe there is a lot of truth there. I am not a musician, but I understand how good Stevie Tombstone is. His music is performed in the spirit of the great troubadours: Townes Van Zandt, Hank Williams, and Guy Clark to name a few. It is definitely edgy and also contains that punk rock energy and spirit. Just listen to My Bad Angel Eye (Track 13) on I Wish I Was Back In Vegas and you can hear that punk rock sound coming through loud and clear. This guy is the genuine article and deserves some acclaim.
