The Blue Stones

Share This Story

The Blue Stones are a rock duo from Windsor, ON, Canada, comprised of Tarek Jafar (guitar, vocals) and Justin Tessier (drums, backing vocals). The band developed an original characteristic to the sounds of the bands that influenced them, such as Kings of Leon, My Morning Jacket, MUTEMATH and The Black Keys. “We never had a bass player in our early jams, so we subconsciously compensated for one in the music,” says Tarek.

The Blue Stones headlined the first session of our 2019 Liquid Art Festival. We caught up with Tarek and Justin to talk inspiration, what they’re listening to right now and more.
