Thanks QSC Audio!

 

In September on our Fall Tour, we stopped by the QSC Audio factory in Costa Mesa, CA to visit our friend David Cepeda. The guys at QSC were super rad, & took us on a factory tour, replaced the voice coils in our 6 year old road worn speakers for free, & gave us a new power amp. 

No other audio company in America would be so awesome to a band on tour!

Thanks Bryan & David!

KUT FM 90.5 - AUSTIN MUSIC MINUTE

 

"Austin psychedelic country-roots duo The Lonesome Heroes released an album this year called Daydream Western. Quite frankly, the title couldn’t be more fitting. This is exactly what a daydream would sound like, the perfect soundtrack to accompany you on that long stretch of highway that has no defined destination, when you’re alone with your mind and lost in your thoughts. The album is a rich blend of acoustic guitar, steel, multi-layered textures and vocals from songwriters Rich Russell and Landry McMeans that sweep you right up into that daydream. This is the the soundscape that occurs when indie rock and country artfully cross paths."

Hero worship: Rewriting the Rules of Alt-Country, Lonesome Heroes are so Awesome, We Could Cry.

 

 

Hero worship

Rewriting the rules of alt-country, Lonesome Heroes are so awesome, we could cry.

"When Brooklyn native Rich Russell decided he wanted to be a country singer after years of drinking up indie bands in hip, New York City neighborhoods, he knew the perfect place to go: Texas.

“Austin is a really hip, indie-oriented city, but everybody still likes Hank Williams,” he said. “It made perfect sense for me to move out there.”

Russell soon found more than a receptive town, with a writing — and romantic — partner in Landry McMeans. Both independent songwriters, they played a few shows together, but their styles didn’t work well together."
