TOP STORIES
The Milledgeville, GA music scene will soon boast its status as the birthplace of STOKESWOOD, a memorable modern musical blend founded during the college careers of two of its chosen sons.

Adam Patterson and Mark Godwin did go their separate ways for a time after their Georgia College and State University days; Adam experimented with a solo career, while Mark started a band, EDA, in Milledgeville. The two came together again, and by summer 2005, were offering shows in Miami, Knoxville, Washington, D.C., and Boston.

The STOKESWOOD sound, based on strong acoustic and electric guitar licks, is filled with influences like Simon and Garfunkel, Radiohead, and the Beatles, to name a few, and clearly illuminates those emanations under the light of a more present time. The STOKESWOOD performance reflects an energy that is at once tranquil and energizing. “We play with a lot of feel and passion and that love is passed from the stage to the crowd, I hope,” says Mark.

College days quickly dissolved into years of playing the local circuit, Athens, Atlanta and Milledgeville, and building a following among fans in the region. Adam states, “We want people to walk away knowing that we left everything we had on the stage.” The sound that results from this collaboration is almost too power-filled to come from a duo. And that's a good thing.

In 2007 the next evolution will take stride as STOKESWOOD expands to five members. Jon Joiner (of Moonshine Still) now on drums previously played djembe for Stokeswood in the early years. Percussionist Craig Gendreau, who has been playing with STOKESWOOD for close to a year now takes a permanent spot and brings his vast musical knowledge to the table. "The Rev" as he's known is a jack of all trades. The low end will now be filled by the bass and piano stylings of long time friend and musician Reed Irvine. Stokeswood is currently recording their first fullband album due out in spring of 08.
