California based singer-songwriter, Ismay, has released the second single, "The Stones" off of their upcoming debut record, Songs of Sonoma. The single was shared with GroundSounds praising, "' The Stones” begins with beautiful guitar-work and unfolds into a captivating narrative that does a great job of painting a picture for the listener. Fantastic song – short but sweet."

In describing the inspiration of "The Stones" Ismay says, "While on the Klamath River, I was out trying to record oral histories, and heard about this nylon string guitar player Rex. We drove down a dirt road on a cliff to what must have been one of the most remote towns in California, and all the while I was thinking about all of the questions I'd ask. We arrived at his house was which was hand-built, and waited patiently for several hours while he talked. Only after those hours of listening did he share that he wouldn't be willing to talk on tape. But, he was willing to show us something very few people had seen. So he brought us into the bedroom and opened a box. There were a few plain-looking rocks, and he explained he had found this unique rock right here on the Klamath, and then revealed what was so special--after turning on a special light, you could see what looked like galaxies of stars there in the stones."

With the release of "The Stones" Ismay also announces that their debut LP, Songs of Sonoma, will be released in February of 2020.
