The White Eagle says

Wooden Sleepers is a folk trio based in Portland, Oregon with occasional special guests. This band is genuinely a group effort as all of the members write material and are multi instrumentalists. You won't help but sway and stomp your feet to their heart melting harmonies and riddled grooves. Binding the beat, Phil Krug holds 'em all together on the bass, laying a subtle funk frenzy, while Nolan Gordin and Nik Kemmer trade off mandolin and guitar, pouring with emotion for all the world's glory and sorrow.

About The Lonesomes

Amazing new CD that 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! 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, shoe boots with spurs, shots of rye at the local saloon, and lots of dirt. It has the necessary punk-slash-honky-tonk charm to qualify as an alt-country gem. And, despite all of the classic influences on display, they still manage to make music that sounds remarkably fresh. The 12 songs on There's No Denying Josephine represent all of their best elements - the songs keep you guessing what might come next, each one with its own little angle on the whole picture the band is presenting."
