Atlanta-based alternative rock/ electro-pop band Stokeswood formed in 2009 and took its name from a well-known thoroughfare where founding members Adam Patterson (vocals) and Mark Godwin (lead guitar) once lived in a haunted house that caught fire. The current lineup also includes Michael Roman (keys), Jon Joiner (drums), and Justin Mullinix (bass and live production).
The musicians are known to switch instruments between songs — hinting to their eclecticism and energy on stage — and eschew limits on influences. Their new EP 2075 taps new wave, power-pop and indie rock, and even references Atlanta hip-hop beats. Songs are expertly layered to maximize textures and sonic impact earning their place on the dance floor.
Stokeswood was named best local rock band by Creative Loafing Atlanta in 2013 and 2014. The publication also honored the group for best band name and best music video for "Our Streets.” True to their mass appeal, the band has shared stages with a variety of artists such as Wiz Kalifa, Sister Hazel, MGMT, GirlTalk, Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeroes, Minus the Bear, Skrillex, Bass Nectar, Michael Franti, and Barenaked Ladies.
