Stop Light Observations is a 4-piece anti-pop/not rock (but also isn’t not rock) band.
Charleston, South Carolina home-grown artist Stop Light Observations, also known as SLO started playing together at the young age of 13 when songwriter, and pianist John-Keith Culbreth asked guitarist Louis Duffie the iconic teenager a question…. “wanna start a band?” Through the young years of focusing on writing great songs, the young duo picked up childhood friend Luke Withers (drums), and Will Blackburn (vocals). Over time the adding of Coleman Sawyer on bass and fiddle, and Wyatt Garrey on lead guitar, formulated the power-dynamic sextet rock group know as Stop Light Observations.
Stop Light Observations plays a unique style described as Southern-Retro-Electro-Rock with influences of classic rock and roll, indie, motown, hip-hop, folk, revival, psychedelic, garage, and arena rock. They claim their drive is the fun and spirit of performing and creating great songs, but most of all the camaraderie that is shared with this group of life long southern friends.The truly unique band Stop Light Observations plans on furthering their impact on the national level and have some fun while creating an awakening with their passion and art.
From playing Bonnaroo Music Festival, Selling out premier music venues, playing AAA radio, and releasing their new album titled ‘Radiation,’ Stop Light Observations is making a fast growth in the music industry.
