The High and Lonesome's Greatest Hits... so far. - 4 track EP. A new studio album is in the works.



Assembled from two very different bands, The High and Lonesome came into being after the demise of Joplin, MO group 'The Strange' and San Diego, CA group 'Snakeoil Revival'. Combining the minimalist movement sounds of 'The Strange' with the psychedelic retro stylings of 'Snakeoil Revival' proved to actually create a new sound for a new band. Enter The High and Lonesome. 'The Strange' mainstays Jake Channel (vocals, guitar) and Josh Thompson (drums) joined forces with 'Snakeoil Revival' vocalist and co-founder Wil Kimbrel (lead guitar, vocals) and 'Cryin' Out Loud's Troy Cupp (bass guitar) to put The High and Lonesome on the straight and narrow path to the rock 'n roll promised land. Fueled by a unique mix of retro sounds, roots music appreciation and a love for straight up garage and avant garde noise, The High and Lonesome have an instantly identifiable sound. The last year has found the band on the road spreading their newfound rock 'n roll gospel to all who will hear. With a live show labelled as both 'intense' and 'a sight to behold', be sure to check out The High and Lonesome when they come to a town near you...
