Shalestone Music began as a road case production and PA company in Chapel Hill, North Carolina working for frat bands at parties and nightclubs and making their cases. Later on, a mobile recording studio was added for recording demos.
A long list of satisfied clients include independent artists as well as major acts like Hugh Masekela, Black Uhuru, Hootie & the Blowfish, Helmet, Buddy Guy and Angelique Kidjo among many, many others.
The turn of the century brought a change to a different part of the world, and after seeing the tremendous interest in touring Japan, services became centered around booking and artist promotion with a focus on independent artists touring Japan for the first time.
From the first tour in 2006 to the present, hundreds of musicians from countries around the world have used our services to experience the Japanese music scene.
Currently, Shalestone Music books tours for musicians from overseas (see our tour services) as well as performances around Japan and in other countries for both Japanese and non-Japanese musicians. We also, manage the booking and PA for Hard Rock Cafe Osaka, the only Hard Rock Cafe in Japan that has weekly live performances.
