Rich Layton & The Troublemakers are keepers of the flame for American roots rock, music that blurs the lines between vintage country, rock and blues. With comparisons to such artists as Marty Stuart, Dave Alvin and Sturgill Simpson, the band takes audiences for a ride from Sun Studios to Chess Records, and Muscle Shoals to Bakersfield. Rich's original songs thread seamlessly into the mix, weaving his Gulf Coast roots through tales of rock and roll redemption, harmonica-fueled and swampified. Together a decade now, the band has released two albums, and performs at festivals and events throughout the NW, including the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival. Each summer, Rich joins Lyle Lovett as a special guest when The Large Band comes to town. Rich also has played on Portland tour stops by his friends Lucinda Williams, Dale Watson and the late Buckwheat Zydeco.
The 13th album from the Portland mainstay is
10 new songs from a 10-piece band featuring three horns, two ladies singing
backing vocals and rockin' guitars-it's full of Memphis soul and bluesy
grooves. Recorded live at an 8-track studio in glorious mono, The Lost Cause
is an analog statement from a local legend.
'The Lost Cause' is out now on vinyl and CD
