About Stop Light Observations
Charleston, South Carolina home-grown band Stop Light Observations, also known as SLO, started playing together at the young age of 13 when songwriter/ pianist John-Keith Culbreth asked guitarist Louis Duffie the iconic teenager boy question: “Wanna start a band?”. The duo picked up childhood friends Luke Withers and Will Blackburn to play dem’ drums and sing dem’ songs, and over time added Coleman Sawyer on bass and fiddle and Wyatt Garrey on lead guitar, formulating the power-dynamic six piece rock group that is Stop Light Observations.
Truly one of the most gifted and dynamic bands performing today, SLO’s shows have become an experience both musically and metaphysically, not only delivering a message of community and love through their exquisitely crafted songs that build to explosive crescendos sending sold out crowds into a unified pandemonium, but as well giving every audience member that undeniable sensation that they are part of something much bigger than themselves, much bigger than any individual or any band alone.
SLO seamlessly incorporates numerous genres into their music, best described Transformational Rock with influences of Classic Rock N’ Roll, Indie, Motown, Hip-hop and Folk, Revival, Psychedelic, Garage, and Arena Rock. Their sound is unique and diverse and has attracted audiences from all walks of life. There has never been anything like SLO out there, and that is just the way they like it.
