November , 2019 – Chadwick Stokes (Dispatch, State Radio) and his band The Pintos have released their self-titled album via Thirty Tigers – PRESS HERE to listen. Taking aim at weighty subjects, the music in Chadwick Stokes and The Pintos comes spilling out of a wormhole-time traveling stories about history, culture, and the elements of love, loss, and longing that connect us across every divide.
The writing in album notes intense struggles-personal, ethical, political, or cultural-that have always galvanized Stokes as a listener and artist. “We’re living in a crazy time, a very upsetting time,” says Stokes. “If we’re not protesting, there’s a problem.”
Having tested many of these songs on the road over the years of touring, Stokes has created an almost timeless quality to these refined and reimagined studio versions.
