Stone Prophet finds its roots in the archives of the past -- a past of sorrow, passion, endurance and hope. During ancient times, messages of warning fell mainly upon deaf ears. Out of the ruins we are reborn.
Fast-forward to Spring of 2016
Chris Jansen, Jeremy Sutherland and C.P. Palmer got together and exchanged ideas that would give birth to Stone Prophet. After a few months, the hunt to fill the drummer and bassist slots began. they were soon joined by multi-instrumentalists, J.D. Edwards on drums and Jonny Routt on bass.
Jeremy Sutherland, Lead Vocals / Guitar
For 2 decades Jeremy has been creating music with a passion for anything and everything related to the unique. He is the vessel for interpreting emotion, refining and cultivating tales he shares with deft fingers on pen and guitar. His knack for composition and verse thrives with influences from culture, society, love, hate, life and death along with what catches his ear at any given moment.
C.P. Palmer, Guitars
With 30 years of calluses on his fingers and hundreds of shows under his boot, CP brings a wealth of veteran stage presence and diversity to Stone Prophet. Having recorded for Capitol Records in his last venture, he has shared the stage with the likes of Shinedown, Alice in Chains, Staind, Red and Godsmack, to name a few. His roots originate in the British Metal Invasion and extend to legends that include Joe Satriani, Sammy Hagar, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Slash and many more.
J.D. Edwards, Drums / Vocals
With drumstick in hand, a hit on his snare and a heavy beat on his kick, JD keeps time for the music of Stone Prophet.

JD's influences range from the Deftones, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Mastodon and The Beatles to name a few. He has shared the stage with Three Days Grace, Lemonheads, Zoso, Adelita's Way and We Are Harlot.
Jonny Routt, Bass / Vocals
The double punch: soul and intellect. Jonny is a songwriter, producer, engineer, multi-instrumentalist and an alumnus at Full Sail University with a B.S. in Music Production.

Chris Jansen, Guitars / Keyboards & Vocals
Composer, arranger, producer -- Chris plays most anything that makes noise. With an education in theory, composition and arrangement, his career is a statement of contrast. He has worked with musicians around the world. Chris' scope of influence creates an appreciation from the Dominican Friars of the Province of France to Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Stravinsky, Vangelis, Twelve Foot Ninja -- to name a few. While his soul thrives in jazz, he is able to easily navigate within the halls of rock.
