Ty Stone - a lifelong student of James Brown ...
Ty grew up in Chicago and as the second of three sons he always had to try a little harder to be noticed. One night his parents sneaked him backstage at his Uncle's nightclub to see James Brown perform live. Needless to say, Ty has never forgotten that show!

During middle school and high school Ty performed with his bands at every talent show possible doing his James Brown routine. As teens, the band members would pool together their money and take turns going to the show then returning the next day to show the others the latest choreography and moves.

Soul to Soul ...
As an adult, Ty continued to perform the songs of James Brown as he worked with numerous bands, singing, dancing and shouting like the Godfather of Soul. In early 2007, after James Brown's death, Ty was encouraged by a local promoter and friend to create a Tribute show to James Brown. Over the years Ty has perfected his show to give you this authentic tribute to James Brown.

Growing up, Ty also admired many other great artists of the time, greats such as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and Jackie Wilson to name just a few. Along with James Brown, they are now what Ty calls "The Men Upstairs". "They must be putting on one heck of a show up there!"

BUT - Not all of Ty's mentors have left us yet. Among others, you may recognize some of Ty's favorite songs from Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Clarence Carter and even Morris Day and The Time.

Ty has recently released a CD of his original songs - songs with a variety of styles. He is currently working on a new CD of songs from the "Men Upstairs".
