We are currently recording our first full length album in Helena, MT. We hope to have it out by the end of 2016.
Stumbling Free began at a birthday party. After playing acoustic guitar for a few hours together, Travis and Eric knew they had found their third band member, Ali. He had recently moved to the United States from New Zealand, and agreed to play bass. Our friend Brendan who plays drums was added as a fourth member, and we set to practicing and writing songs.
We played our first show for a youth service day at Women's park. A few days later Ali got a new job that took away his weekends. We played shows with the core of Brendan, Eric and Travis. 9 bass players later, we added our friend Jonny who had recently moved to Helena. He is a guitar player, and learned bass quickly. Brendan left for college in 2012, which happened around the same time Ali changed jobs. Ali returned to Stumbling Free as our drummer!
We are a close group of friends who love playing music together. Our music generally spans from rock to ballads. We can also cover a wide variety of musical styles. We have played in Helena at Alive @ Five, Bert & Ernies, The Jesters Bar, The Rathskeller at The Montana Club, Lakeside on Hauser, Great Divide Ski Hill, The Marysville Bar, The Staggering Ox, Carroll College, Millers Crossing, Out To Lunch, The Fall Art Walk, St. Mary's Catholic Community, Green Meadow Country Club, and private parties.
Outside of Helena, we have played at Monks Bar in Missoula, Rocky Mountain College in Billings, The State Fair in Great Falls, private parties, weddings, and in Calgary, Canada!
