The Lonesomes

About The Lonesomes

The Lonesomes

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, boots with spurs and shots of rye at the local saloon. Their most recent full-length CD, “There’s No Denying Josephine,” 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. It has the necessary punk-slash-honky-tonk charm to qualify as an alt-country gem. Since then, they’ve added more twang with B-bender guitar and steel but never stray far from their classic rock roots. With a new video and two new songs set for pre-summer release, 2018 promises to be a busy one for one of Portland’s strongest Americana outfits.
