    Hello from the Road
Stumbling Free began in 2010 when longtime friends Eric Connolly and Travis Grotbo ended up both living in Helena.
They had recently begun writing songs, and had always loved playing music together. The first addition to the band was Ali Lunnon. Ali was born in South Africa, spent his teenage years in New Zealand, and had recently moved to Montana. We made him a bass player even though we would later find out he was actually a drummer! More on that later... We finished off the band by adding Brendan Casey on drums.
Ali got a job that occupied his weekends as we recorded our first EP "A Long Way To Go." We went through 9 bass players before convincing our friend Jonny Doiron who was a guitarist to play bass in our band. Brendan left for college and Ali returned to the band in his element at drums! We recorded two singles with Jonny on bass: "Hello From The Road" and "Some Kind of Adventure." This lineup continued until the Doirons decided to move to Washington to be closer to family. As luck would have it we had recently found out a friend who played in a one gig band "The Territorial Yard Gnomes" with Travis - don't ask - was living in Helena. Derek Fleming took over bass duties.
We are currently recording our first full length album, playing weddings, churches, and bars, and loving every minute of it. Thanks for listening!
