As a high school senior in a Seattle suburb, Zach Shaw exchanged a paddleboat for his first guitar. Around the same time, his twin step brothers, Ben and Josh Phelps, were cutting their musical teeth with hardcore/punk bands in California. In 2006, the twins moved up to Washington and the three started playing together in their parents’ den. They soon gravitated towards a more soulful sound, drawing inspiration from the likes of Al Green, Ray Charles, and The Rolling Stones.

The band adopted their great-grandfather’s name, Lanford Black, and started testing out material at Seattle staples like The Tractor Tavern and Conor Byrne. Onstage chemistry was a non-issue: these guys love making music together and their energy is infectious. With raw vocals, searing guitar riffs, and a tight rhythm section, Lanford Black offers an invitation to the dance floor that’s impossible to refuse.
