Bio

Colby Imus and The Good Lieutenants bring together a diverse group of exceptional musicians and friends. Kodiak, Alaska native and current West Seattle resident Colby Imus (lead singer, guitar, theramin, and harmonica), takes a stand on his first solo album as singer/songwriter with "The Good Lieutenant". Spokane, WA native and current West Seattle resident Wade "Donna" Wilson (guitar, backing vocals), blends his heavy metal pedigree with unbridled rock 'n roll flawlessly. Trinidad native and current West Seattle resident Tim Romain (bass, backing vocals), has an extensive background from motown to punk and blends with the many faces of music “The Good Lieutenant” represents. Jersey City native and current Belltown resident Steve Fox(drums), completes this package with his strength, impeccable timing and gentle precision. The influences of Colby Imus and The Good Lieutenants range from Einstúrzende Neubauten, Leonard Cohen, Bjork, Shane MacGowan, Beach Boys to Bowie and the British invasion, funk, punk, and motown. That being said, the style you will hear is all their own, from the controlled raucous of “Cherry Flavored Morphine” to the gentle drift of “Follow Me Down the Road”. Colby’s vocals at times haunted and longing on songs such as “Parting” and “Days” give the listener a way to come down from the visceral strength of “3rd Over Man” and “Waterfall Mirage”. His lyrics don’t give anything away, making you the listener an involved part of the story. Tackling ideas through a bone of empathy, he works each song into a complete work of its own, leaving none to rely on another to succeed. The album was recorded at Conrad Uno Studios(Supersuckers, Mudhoney, The Presidents of the United States) in Seattle, WA and mastered by Jim Santenalla of Squatter Records in Seattle, WA. "The Good Lieutenant" is an all out commitment to Colby’s relationship with music and a promise for what may come next. Currently at work on "Dark Horse" the follow up to "The Good Lieutenant", expect to hear this band transgress in sounds and style and the pure enjoyment of making music. Colby Imus and The Good Lieutenants are driven to one end, to make great music. They will cement themselves in the belly of your musical soul. Accolades: In early 2008, Kevin McDonald called the album “Outstanding”. Colby appeared on the local broadcast of the “Kevin McDonald Presents…” show which aired on KKNW, also available on podcast at www.kevinmcdonaldpresents.com, (interview listed under Feb 1, 2008). In May 2008, in an article written by Ahndrea Wilson @ www.seattlesubsonic.com , she hails The Good Lieutenant as an album capable of “pulling the listener into whatever emotions seethe from Colby’s lyrics”. She recalled feeling “mesmerized” by a live performance. “You must maintain drive that goes beyond obsession, beyond purpose, beyond reason. Every moment must be in the forward direction.” Henry Rollins from “Get In The Van”
