Stuart Weber, guitar virtuoso and a true “Western original” (The Denver Post), already had a passion-filled, prolific career behind him when he came to PARMA. The road ahead for the Northern Rocky Mountains native would prove to be as vibrant as the landscapes and stories from which he originally came.
Stuart began work with PARMA with the release of his 2018 album THE FIFTH ROW on Ravello Records. Stuart came to PARMA with a collection of solo acoustic guitar recordings captured in several historic theaters through the Rocky Mountain Northwest. Recorded in solitude at each theater, often in the dead of night to avoid picking up the sounds of traffic outdoors, Stuart captured classical and folk songs that explored the heart of American music and history. We loved Stuart’s music and the story behind this release, and after post-production was complete, the album was released to the public under the Ravello Records label.
