About The Lonesomes

The Lonesomes

Amazing new CD that contains shining elements of The Byrds (jangly 12-string guitars and a trumpet solo a la "So You Want To Re A Rock & Roll Star"), Tom Petty, Neil Young (the guitar solos), and the Allman Brothers (nice mix of Hammond and dual guitars) sprinkled tastefully throughout! When you think about The Lonesomes, there's the feeling of the old West, not just in the band's name but in their sound and feel - something that put you in mind of tan chinos, shoe boots with spurs, shots of rye at the local saloon, and lots of dirt. It has the necessary punk-slash-honky-tonk charm to qualify as an alt-country gem. And, despite all of the classic influences on display, they still manage to make music that sounds remarkably fresh. The 12 songs on There's No Denying Josephine represent all of their best elements - the songs keep you guessing what might come next, each one with its own little angle on the whole picture the band is presenting."

About James and the Giant Beat

James and the Giant Beat

From CDBaby: [Sasser's] Southside of Sorrow is a modern-vintage record of roots music. Released in the summer of 2004, James Sasser has gained plenty of mileage from his debut CD. In March of 2005, "That Kinda Day" was chosen as music for a regionally broadcast television commercial for Henry Weinhard's Beer. Also, that song was included on Failing Records Compilation of Portland: Volume 1 in 2005. "Lost and Found" was chosen for use in the soundtrack for Liquid Insanity, a nationally released kayak movie/doc, in 2006. Others are in consistent rotation on internet radio as far away as Belgium and The Netherlands. Currently, James is hard at work on his second release and playing shows, as always.
