Stone Poets

Wear a Mask

Stone Poets felt compelled to write and record, “Wear a Mask”.
When the Covid 19 pandemic hit, all their live concerts were cancelled, which included festivals, venues and private shows.  Hot off an eastern Canadian tour in the fall, their career was stopped in its tracks.

After months of social isolating and listening to health department regulations, Cherelle, Marc and Scott grew weary of watching social media and news channels showing people not wearing masks and participating in “freedom rallies”, so they decided to use their platform in the music industry, write and record, “Wear a Mask”, and put together a fun video to inspire others to wear a mask.”We wanna get back to the way life used to be”, Cherelle sings…The song is a step outside their usual genre but they wanted to write an upbeat, danceable song to get the message across to mass appeal.

Recorded with Sheldon Zaharko at Zed Productions, Juno nominated Producer/Engineer and Winner of the West Coast Music Award for Engineer of the year, Marc Gladstone, keyboardist in the Canadian band Prism along with bandmates Cherelle and Scott.
Adding the pop/funk flavour to the track is guest artist, internationally renowned guitarist Brian Poulsen The video was put together with friends and fans that sent in their photos to support the message.
“It’s such a simple task … please wear a mask.”
