Still working on that hot first release.



The Lonesome Billies shoot from the hip with their own take on a classic country sound that has been described as "boot stomping, gator hootin, whiskey swilling music". Four men from the badlands of Hazel Dell who have stuck together from their early days and have developed a bond akin to brotherhood, all while playing unapologetic dark and dusty honky tonk music.

Like the outlaw singers and guitar pickers who came before, these fellas tell stories, playing a mixture of songs both capable of starting a whiskey-fed bar fight or a Texas two step. The Billies embrace the DIY, anti-establishment ethos of 70's punk rock and outlaw/honky tonk music, playing original music born out of their unique experiences. Four life long friends who grew up listening to the likes of The Ramones and The Clash make for a loose, rough and tumble approach to country music.

The Lonesome Billies debut full length record "It's Good To Be Lonesome" is set to be released in the 2015 (all songs in the Sonicbids profile are unreleased tracks from the upcoming record). The album was produced by Brandon Eggleston, (currently producing/engineering the upcoming Modest Mouse album, previous work includes The Mountain Goats, Swans, and Les Saavy Fav among many others).

With the record completed and in the production phase, The Billies turn their attention to promotion and creating a marketing campaign.  A polished group of old friends with a unique sound, a timeless look, a new record, and good attitudes.... It's Good To Be Lonesome!
