Lewi Longmire has built a reputation as Portland's
multi-instrumentalist "go to guy." In the years since relocating to
Portland from Albuquerque, New Mexico, he's been included on shows and
recordings by many of the Northwest's finest bands and songwriters. He's played
with national acts Michael Hurley, Victoria Williams, Dolorean, AgesandAges,
Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside, Blue Giant/Viva Voce/The Robinsons,
Dolorean, the Minus 5, Breathe Owl Breathe and Tara Jane O'Neill as well as
local luminaries Denver, The Portland Country Underground, Midlo/Pancake
Breakfast, Quiet Life, Fernando, James Low, Perhapst, Electric Ill, Little Sue,
Casey Neill, Michael Jodell, the Freak Mountain Ramblers, and is an anchor
member of Portland's all-star tribute to the Allman Brothers, Brothers and
Recently, though, Lewi has taken all the things he learned from
working with these fine performers and has been spending his time leading a
roots rock/americana band of his own, singing his own compositions. This group
owes much to the American tradition of good songs played with high energy, deep
roots, and an unpretentious sense of fun. Their sound finds the connection
between the basement feel of The Band, the raspy blue-eyed soul of Joe Cocker,
the desert space of Giant Sand, the "without a net" deep space
improvisations of the San Francisco ballrooms, the punk abandon of The Stooges
and the quiet contemplation of Neil Young playing solo.
Helping achieve this are THE LEFT COAST ROASTERS, a band of
stalwart Portland musicians. Bill Rudolph (bass and vocals) played with the
Crackpots and Little Sue for years, driving their home crowd into an energetic
frenzy with his low tones. Ned Folkerth (drums) has toured the world over with
many groups, including the midwest's Pinetop Seven and Portland's own Caleb
Klauder Band, always laying down the perfect groove to cure whatever ails ya.
Newest addition Dan Eccles (guitar) has most often been seen in the band
Richmond Fontaine or backing up local rock legend Fernando.
