From the beginning it was evident that the brothers Dio and Dimitri Tadin were destined to work together in some form or another. As fate would have it, that form turned out to be the foundation of the Toronto-based band Clear Stone. After all, it was Dimitri who bought Dio his first electric guitar and urged him to do what came so naturally to him - write songs. Dio immersed himself in all kinds of music but fell hard for the sound and song writing styles of The Beatles. Since then Dio has come to appreciate many other artists. The Beatles, however, specifically John Lennon, remain the ultimate standard of 'the great artist'. Dimitri in turn liked what he heard and saw that there was a need for a bass player. So he volunteered and got the job! Since then he has been playing with Dio, and engineering and arranging songs with him. That was their entry into music. The brothers learned to work well together and were drawn in a similar musical direction. The principle of brotherhood would become the axis upon which the band would evolve. That continues to be the core of what guides the band through out the scope of what it does. Dio and Dimitri were determined to keep things as real as possible - no hype, no fluff. They looked for like minded musicians who would put honesty and depth into whatever they created and bring a true intensity wherever they performed. They started by jamming, sessions would go on for hours and hours. Those jams quickly turned into small performances for friends and family. Early rough cuts matured into a unique sound, stirring the souls of their audiences. With their family and friends behind them, the next step was to bring the show out of the garage and into the street. Performing in showcases around Southern Ontario gave Clear Stone the confidence to develop their unique melodies, strong lyrics, and Dio's hypnotic singing style. At the request of audiences the boys decided it was time to record their first tracks. Several attempts were made to capture the essence that is Clear Stone - all with little success? That is until now! The EP 'Broken Words' marks the first of, what Clear Stone anticipates will become, many successful releases in the future. Enjoy!
