Hometown: Austin, TX
The Lonesome Heroes debut full length Daydream Western
has been nominated by The Independent Music Awards for album of the year for 2011. Described by Austin NPR affiliate KUT 90.5 FM as: "Western Americana, a cross-pollination of rock, folk and country with psych and indie pop – influences from their Texas and Brooklyn backgrounds. It’s the soundscape that occurs when indie rock and country artfully cross paths.". Inclusive in sound, the Lonesome Heroes are as comfortable in the West Texas desert as the sandy shores of California. Pigeonholed as Alt Country for too long, Daydream Western
represents a maturation of their sound into a highway revelry that crosses state lines and blurs genres seamlessly.
