I have recently moved to Boise from Bend, Oregon. I have been playing music for many years off and on mostly as a committed hobby fitting it in around life, work, family. It's one of my creative outlets, I'm good at what I do within my range of vocal and musical abilities. I enjoy songwriting and recording but I also enjoy covering a variety of artists and performing live for private parties, and small venues when the right opportunity presents itself.
I'm a solid rhythm guitar player with some flat and finger picking skills. I also have respectable vocal skills for both lead and backup/harmonies. Styles include originals and covers from a variety of genres including country, folk and classics covers.

It'll Be Alright
It'll Be Alright Track number: 1 Year: 2013 Album: Single Genre: Acoustic
I wrote this song in 2011 and originally my friend Rod Dahl helped with the arrangement. Since that time I have rearranged it after getting feedback from song workshops. I recorded this version in June 2013 using my Mac, Presonus USB and Garage Band. I play the guitar parts and sing lead vocal and low harmony. My daughter Shana sings high harmony. It sounds fuller with a solid lead (I'm mostly a rhythm player), a bass and some percussion all of which I hope to add in a recording studio session.
Time Slippin Track number: 2 Year: 2011 Album: SIngle Genre: Other
This version was recorded at Bon Vivant Studios in 2011 and we entered it in the Central Oregon Songwriters Association Song of The Year Awards contest. We won an award for this one in the Blues category. Credits go to Rod Dahl for adding his talent on musical and vocal arrangements. The current version which I have yet to record has been rearranged after work shopping and getting feedback on the song. It still sounds pretty much the same but with some changes to the verses, the instrumental breaks and I added a vocal harmony and chord change interlude that makes it more interesting. Will add the newer version soon.
The group consisted of myself, Shana, Garth and TJ. This was an outdoor venue and we played for about 50 people on private property in Sisters.
Billed as Shana Stanley and friends (trio), Shana and Stan Roach will be joined by Russ Stanage to compete in this local "battle of the bands" style competition. We'll play a 30 minute set and see if we get through to the next round.
Shana & Stanley will be performing a set of acoustic electric tunes from well known to lesser know covers and originals.
Playing Beatles, Classic Rock, Blues, and Originals.
We'll becovering Lennon/McCartney, John Sebastian, Dixie Chicks, Miranda Lambert.
Dahl & Roach will be playing Time 2 live at this event. 24 artists are on the bill for live performances. April 1, 2011 - 6:00PM at Boondocks on Newport in Bend Oregon.
