John Lathrop - Bass, Drums, Electric & Acoustic Guitars, Synth, Lead & Bg Vocals
The Stan Laurels, based in Austin, TX, USA, are the musical creation of John Lathrop, who takes independent ownership of every aspect of music production, as he writes, performs, sings, records, produces, and releases his music on his label, Plaid Records. Music is everything to him, and he has spent his entire life listening and learning. The culmination of his musical vocabulary and relentless drive to write the perfect pop song, Lathrop has carefully crafted The Stan Laurels with a big, lush, multi-layered pop/rock sound that feels both vintage and modern. Usually labeled indie rock or power-pop, the music truly spans a myriad of styles to show Lathrop's range - a range so broad that he's added Film Score Composer to his duties and two full-length motion picture soundtracks to his catalogue. This includes his most recent effort, the soundtrack the film Maybe Shower; entitled Maybe, this is Lathrop's most highly acclaimed album to date, landing on many "Best of 2018" lists and getting regular airplay all over the world. The pinnacle of these accolades was an Independent Music Award nomination for Best Indie/Alt Rock album of 2018. Essentially the Indie Grammys, The IMAs are the biggest music award in the world for independent artists. Experimenting with many different musical styles, yet always maintaining an unwavering, strong sonic sense of self, John Lathrop is a unique force of nature, an audial auteur like no other artist. And to his delight, his loving creation, The Stan Laurels, can be found gracing film screens as often as radios. To summarize in one sentence: The Beatles, Breeders, Zombies, Kinks, Cars, and Debussy make up just some of the layers of the Warhol-esque sonic power-pop art painting that is The Stan Laurels.
