The Lonely Ones are an original folk / Americana band from Rochester, NY.

Their songs range from boot-stomping to heartbreaking, all with trademark tight harmonies and songwriting.

Their sound is resonant of the American countryside, wide open and rich with storytelling.

Aaaaaaand... we're done tracking our new album! Great job Levi, Sam, and Brian for getting the work done in one shift. This is very exciting because it means we can start the wheels turning on the next steps, which are comping, mixing, and mastering, very soon.

We're all very happy with how Brian at Redbooth is making our new record sound, and are excited for it's release. Stay tuned for more progress details!


Work continues on the new album, but before I get to that: check out our "shows" page for details on our upcoming Sticky Lips BBQ Juke Joint gig! Be sure to check back to that page to see what other shenanigans and scheduling may arise in the future...

Due to an unavoidable scheduling conflict we had to skip out on our former "last studio date" earlier this month. Take heart: we have rescheduled two half session which we ought to be finishing up in early June. Then we'll be ready to start the wheels turning on the mixing and mastering phase of our masterly plan.

Meanwhile we're still working on those sweet Kickstarter perks we promised, not the least of which will be our first ever Live Album. It's a slow process, but stay tuned!


April has been a busy month. We've locked down the scheduling for the last of the Kickstarter Reward gigs (Private Events on our "Shows" page) and organized the new album line-up, brainstormed potential song transitions, and decided on auxiliary percussion ideas and extra tracking usage based on the rough mixes.

We also had a great time playing for Roots Cafe, Bernunzio's Music Store, and the runners of the Flower City Challenge Half Marathon at Mile Five on the course!

One of the last creative steps in the process of making our new full length studio album is our final tracking session at the studio this coming Saturday. After that we'll be able to move the project along to it's final stages of mixing, mastering, and ultimately production of CDs. We're getting close and are very excited!


It felt pretty good to dish out our first gig since December this past Friday evening. Big thanks to Roots Cafe in Naples for hosting us and the energetic crowd for sticking around to enjoy our efforts. Next up is Bernunzio Uptown Music on East Ave, Rochester. Check out our Shows page for details!

New Album update correction: vocal tracking is ALMOST done; Sammy has one more song to hit, in addition to whatever axillary percussion and last minute what-have-you that we'll tackle on our last recording session in early May. Now that the hard stuff is over we get to do fun things like choose song order and work on packaging design. The project is really coming together, thanks to Brian over at Redbooth. We're very excited!


Levi and Samantha finished tracking vocals in the studio today! We've got one more tracking day scheduled in early May for violin, auxiliary percussion, and other sundry items, and then we'll be ready to mix this new album!

In the mean time please check out our April gigs on the "Shows" page!


Our friend and family Aaron Pridmore laid down some sweet organ and piano tracks for us this past Monday. Aaron is very talented on the keys, so needless to say we are very excited to have him as a part of our album project.

Only a few weeks left in March: check out our "Shows" page, as we are now up to three fun gigs for the month of April!


Lots of exciting developments with our new album project! Levi and Sam are half way through vocal tracking, a special guest and friend of the band will be tracking some organ on Monday, and we just wrapped up a productive band meeting where we budgeted and talked about design ideas and moving the project forward.

AND we got to hear the first "rough mix" of the album tracking thus far. It's a long process but we're getting very excited about our new future CD!


The Roots Cafe gig in Naples has been rescheduled to early-mid April. See our "shows" page for details.

Also, new-album guitar and piano tracks are recorded! (Great job, Levi!)


Our Roots Cafe gig has either been canceled or postponed. Stay tuned for details...
