As Billy Dukes of Taste Of Country said, Lena Stone is “flat out easy to listen to,” a singer/songwriter whose melodies and personal storytelling make her “feel like a friend after just a few minutes.” After earning a name for herself penning breakthrough songs for other up-and-coming country females (Kalie Shorr’s “Fight Like A Girl,” “He’s Just Not That Into You,” and Kasey Tyndall’s “Everything Is Texas”) Stone made her own splash onto the country music scene with her debut single “Nervous” (February 2017), premiering the song with Radio Disney Country. Stone followed with the singles “Can’t Think Straight” and “Running Out Of Red Lights,” and is set to release her debut EP at the end of May 2018. The Carlisle, Massachusetts native grew up singing and writing songs, influenced by artists from James Taylor to Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland and Taylor Swift, before moving to Nashville to pursue a career in music and jumped into Music City’s songwriting community and spending several years as a staff writer at Song Factory Publishing. Stone is one of the co-anchors of the Song Suffragettes, the acclaimed Listening Room Café’s only regularly scheduled show, and performs at the group's weekly songwriters night spotlighting the newest and brightest women in country music.
