The Lonesome Heroes + Georgia Parker Band at the 'Dad Lounge
THE LONESOME HEROES
Austins Lonesome Heroes reside at the cosmic junction of indie rock and country. Led by frontman Rich Russells never-ending call of the road, the group have toured extensively behind two acclaimed albums across continents on both sides of the world, while never straying too far from their Cosmic Americana roots.
An ethereal reverence for the troubadour spirit is evident in stand out tracks Western Style Saloons - an homage to small town dance halls featured on the final season of Netflixs Bloodline - and the linking of asphalt, mind and body in Steel - named KCRWs Top Tune Download of the Day. Both appear on 2015s Cant Stand Still, which became more of a state of being than a sophomore album for the Heroes as the number of shows across the U.S. paired with an Australian tour turned into 100+ dates. Cant Stand Still was praised at home by the Austin Chronicle as one of 2015s best albums, featured abroad in Rolling Stone Australia, and received airplay on radio stations throughout the U.S., Europe and Australia.
With a new album on the horizon, Lonesome Heroes are picking up where Cant Stand Still left off, not only returning to Jim Enos (Spoon) Public Hi-Fi, but continually deriving inspiration from the miles put behind. Recorded by Brad Bell and produced by Gary Newcomb, this will be their 4th studio album to date with another one in the works.
As the finishing touches are made on Rise & Fall, The Lonesome Heroes are planning a June 24th record release in Austin at The Sagebrush, followed by a July & August tour of the mountain states and a September appearance at the Brooklyn Americana Music Festival September 23-25th, followed by a 12 day East Coast Tour.
Brooklyn-raised Russell formed The Lonesome Heroes in 2006 after relocating to Austin. The release of 2012s Daydream Western won that year's Vox Pop award at the Independent Music Awards, with the single Something Reckless featured on ABCs Nashville in 2013. Described by KUTX as the soundscape that occurs when indie rock and country artfully cross paths, The Lonesome Heroes have played over 1000 shows, turning indie-rockers into two-steppers (or vice-versa) by way of the rhythm of the road.
GEORGIA PARKER BAND
A Hill Country Texan through and through, her sound is of a quality and character that can only be acquired over many years of listening to country greats like Willie Nelson, Cindy Walker, and Bob Wills.
As a young musician she spent much of her time at her familys country home in Boerne, Texas, situated on the Guadalupe River. Her time as a naturalist and survivalist instructor made her deeply connected with the outdoors, a connection that is reflected in her stripped-down acoustic sets and her unadulterated musical style.
She started her professional career as an upright bassist in 2013. Living in Austin, Texas at the time, she had the opportunity to tour and play with, as well as learn from, some of the best in the country.
In 2015, Georgia picked up her acoustic guitar and began performing a series of western swing and classic country shows. She has fronted several regional acts, including the Al Dressen's Super Swing Revue and The Railhouse Band. In her short career, Georgia has already made appearances at legendary venues such as The Broken Spoke (Austin), The BLue Door (Oklahoma City), and The Western Swing Hall of Fame (San Marcos).
While Georgia is a bonafide Texan, she is well-traveled and has spent a good amount of her professional career working with musicians in Colorado where she recorded her first self-titled EP. She also supported many local CO acts including Jake Simpson of The Little Smokies, Banshee Tree, and Jeremy Mohney at prestigious venues such as The Boulder Theater, and E Town Hall (Boulder, CO).
Georgia Parkers accomplishments and travels can only begin to scratch the surface of the character and charm that she brings to the world of Western Swing music. Her smooth vocals and commitment to great musicianship are made clearly apparent in her performances. She has a mystical way of capturing the attention of audiences and has been known to steal the show from her musical compatriots; which doesnt seem to bother them much.
