Learning the piano from age 10, Robert Stone began writing and recording his own originals “I started to realize the best way to successfully process original music was to learn to engineer and produce the music, as you have to know how to get the sound down on tape.” Stone learned how to DJ and began working more on the business side of music. Publishing a trade magazine called Dance Issue, Stone learned about the promotion of music, specifically dance club music.  “I actually went to Winter Music Conference in as an artist.” In the last part of the 90’s, In 2007, Stone co-wrote the musical Bigger Fish To Fry, which evolved into a production called Rock On!, a story line in the vein of Faust. “I was able to produce an off-Broadway equity showcase of Rock On! at the 45th St. Theater in Manhattan, which turned into another exhorbitant learning experience of how expensive the creative process can be." Stone co-wrote the Christmas song Here On Christmas Day sang by Nashville artist Melissa DuVall, which has been published by ManikTree Songs and was picked up on Pandora radio. With a new emphasis on playing piano, Stone is developing material for work at hotels and lounges. “The material is a lot of Billy Joel, which transcends numerous generations. My main emphasis at this time in my life is staying healthy and entertaining. I can play piano, sing, perform stand-up comedy, DJ, and write creatively. It’s all about entertaining, and maybe with some luck money will flow inbound.”
