Over 10 years ago, fresh on the Greenville, NC rock scene came Stairwell. Pulling from all scopes of music their originals are a true testament to who they are. With radio friendly rock songs and meaningful lyrics, they have made a permanent mark on the Greenville music scene for years to come.
Stairwell is based out of Greenville, NC. As all bands, they started out as a cover band and have grown into what they feel is their true original sound. Stairwell is comprised of: Fred Watkins on bass, Shawn Pierce on drums, Jamie Rawls on rhythm/lead, Mark Richardson on lead/rhythm, and Jeremy Monette on lead vocals. Stairwell pulls from all scopes of music: Alternative, Pop, Rock, 80's hair metal. Since forming in 2006, they have strived to get their music heard by listeners everywhere. Stairwell released their first national sound quality album the self titled "Stairwell" on Sept 24, 2010. Their sophomore album “Undermining the Silver Lining” was released September 19, 2014 showing a very wide range of musicality. They have opened for several national acts such as Collective Soul, Pop Evil, Sponge, Saving Abel, Nonpoint, Gemini Syndrome, Fuel, Jerrod Neimman, Framing Hanley, Blackberry Smoke, & home-town favorites Parmalee.
Stairwell has toured all over North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina and is broadening their horizon everyday. Stairwell has performed in numerous cities and for numerous benefits. They have also been featured and had their music played form several stations across North Carolina. From Rock 105.5 WXQR on the coast to 99.5 WXNR in eastern NC. They have also done several acoustic “in-house” shows for these stations and local college radio.
A note from Stairwell:
We are a rock and roll band. Nothing more. Nothing less. We make music that we love to play. We pride on giving our songs a meaning. We strive to be different than the normal. We want to play and we want to be heard. We have over 500 shows on our roster and have been playing for over six years. We are a tight act; we always get positive responses from new places that we play, whether it is from the club owners, the staff, or the fans. We work the crowd, put on high energy shows and are very professional. We promote all of our shows and work with club owners on pricing. It’s a tough economy right now and in order to keep rock music alive we need to work together.
