Country Fried Rock has known one of the members of this band for a long time, but only recently heard their album, Kentucky Straight Heartbreak.
From their bio:
Coming together in November of 2009, these Lonesome boys share a love of honest country music. Based on the carefully crafted songs of Steve Parkinson, the Lonesome boys build arrangements that are reminiscent of old-time honky-tonks and the classic stylings of Parsons, Nelson and The Possum. Their sound is a product of immense thievery; stealing from Nashville, Bakersfield, western swing, folk, and rock and roll. This is clearly a band that only robs from the greats!
The Stony Lonesome has shared the stage with such greats as: New Country Rehab, The Good Family, Ladies of the Canyon, The Dinner Belles, The Magnificent Seven, One Hundred Dollars, and Hawkeyes to name a few.
In May, 2013, Stony Lonesome had the pleasure of recording with the brilliant Andy Magoffin at his House of Miracles in Cambridge, Ontario. A week or two later, the boys emerged with their first true full-band effort. With a mountain of work and whiskey behind them, “Kentucky Straight Heartbreak” is being released by Busted Flat Records on September 20th 2013.
Stony Lonesome is: Steve Parkinson (vocals and guitar), Bryan Wright (electric guitar, vocals,mandolin), Steve Wood (pedal steel,dobro), Scott Fitzpatrick (electric and upright basses, and vocals), and Chris Flannigan (drums).
