Josh Plemon and the Lonesome Drifters

Josh Plemon and the Lonesome Drifters


Traditional Country and Western with a slight twist. Inspired by Hank, Johnny, Setzer, Elvis, Wayne Hancock, Edie Cochran, Gram Parsons, etc.


We play traditional Country and Western music; plain and simple. When you come see a Josh Plemon and the Lonesome Drifters show, you will hear a wide range of songs, from some of our originals to some of our favorites, like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Ernest Tubb and maybe even a Ventures song now and then. We cater to a wide range of audiences, from young to old, with our goal to honor and pay tribute to traditional Country and Honky Tonk music... the stuff that you will NOT hear on today's radio. Our first recording was released in May 2006. The split 7" record featured the JPLD cover of "Bankrobber" by the Clash, and the B-side sported a reckless version of the Plemon original, "Black Widow" done superbly by Punk favorites The Accelerators. Our first full-length, self-titled album will be released in March 2007. We recently wrapped up recording at regionaly acclaimed Room 12 Studios, and are filling up show dates for the winter season. We are very excited to hit the road and promote the new album! The band has also had the honor of sharing the stage with several prominent and incredibly talented musicians, including: UNKNOWN HINSON - "King of Country/Western Troubadours" JIMMY LESTER of LOS STRAITJACKETS, MARK WINCHESTER of BRIAN SETZER '68 COMEBACK SPECIAL and EMMYLOU HARRIS, CHRIS CASELLO "America's Most Charismatic Picker" (BR549, STARLIGHT DRIFTERS, CARLENE CARTER, BRAZILBILLY) And countless other regional and national acts!
