The Earnest Lovers says
CHATHAM COUNTY LINE

Entering their second decade as an ensemble, Chatham County Line bring a deep reverence for traditional American roots music and timeless bluegrass instrumentation to insightful, poetic original songs that are powerfully contemporary yet rich with the complex resonance of their southern heritage. Over the course of six studio albums and performances around the world, they have pursued a singular style that is entirely their own, yet connects with audiences from all walks.

In person, the band is a marvel of rugged soulfulness, veering from winningly loose to thrillingly tight. It's readily apparent that these four men share a profound friendship, and love what they do. "With this band," Wilson says, "you can't just rotate a guy out and replace him. It's something larger than that. It's a big train we're riding on, and everybody's enjoying the ride."

THE EARNEST LOVERS

The Earnest Lovers are vintage honky tonk heartbreak serenaders Pete Krebs (Hazel, Stolen Sweets, Portland Playboys) and Leslie Beia (Copper & Coal, The Lowburners). An alliance forged from their mutual and devoted love of the golden era of country duets, the Lovers have set out to capture that classic sound and to invigorate it with new life in the form of original compositions. With one foot solidly rooted in tradition while allowing the other to two-step forward in exploration, they promise a sound as comforting as old whiskey and as compelling as that fancy new cocktail at the Sapphire Hotel.

Debut EP, Sing Sad Songs, will be released June 11th 2015, and they plan to hit the road the following summer. Performing as a duo, trio, quartet or full 6-piece band, keep an eye out for a bright Lovers star shooting across the western sky.
