Stipe recreate the alt-rock, awesomeness of R.E.M. As regular visitors to the festival scene, leading venues and with gigs into Europe, Stipe earned the praise of “Awesome” from R.E.M.’s own lead singer Michael Stipe.

This is the definitive tribute to one of the biggest bands in rock music. They have performed the songs of R.E.M. to thousands of people worldwide. R.E.M. built a towering back catalogue that reached from the addictive highs of Shiny Happy People down to the reflective darkness of Everybody Hurts, covering all else in between.

Any music fan will try to convert you to their music. An early R.E.M. album loaned to Stipe’s lead vocalist, Richard Southern, worked its magic and convinced him to make a first visit to see R.E.M. in concert.

“Where this band succeeds is in the accuracy of the sound … the lead singer looks the part, his voice is a fairly uncanny likeness of Michael Stipe’s …the other musicians also create a brilliant rendition of the songs, fully convincing and delivered with confidence.” – Platinum Al
