"Seattle Weekly Article"

"A trio who've gone from playing basements to entertaining a sold-out Neumo's crowd in just over a year, the Long Ranger are a smoldering Basement Jaxx to U.S.E.'s Daft Punk." - Rachel Shimp

"Three Imaginary Girls Quotes"

"You really need to dance all night to the Long Ranger, a Seattle-based electronic brother-sister duo who sound like the soundtrack to some indie-rock-disco-down-new-wave porno. This month, you should stick with bands that can rhyme "short black hair" with "underwear."

"They're the ultimate DIY party band. And they own two-fifths of the songs on my "Shake your Ass" iPod playlist. " -

"Neumo's Review"

"At first glance, The Long Ranger didn’t seem like much. Their instruments consisted of an electric guitar and an Apple laptop computer. Once the music started, however, my ears were treated with a techno-rock sound that isn’t comparable to anything I have heard in my life.' 'They began their set with a song called 2by2. I was completely hooked after the first few notes. During the song Rollerskates, the lead singer proceeded to break dance on stage with what little space he had.' 'I strongly recommend looking into The Long Ranger. Especially considering they are the best techno band since Daft Punk." -


EP - "Shorty - P"
Songs, "Rollerskates" and "Burnin'" have received airplay



It all started with Bon Jovi's "Livin' On a Prayer". After that, me and hook and melody were real tight. When I was about 13 I remember playing Dave Brubeck's "Take 5" from memory off of an old Infinity car commercial that I had heard a few days before. I was so psyched, I didn't even care that it was in the wrong key.

As long as I can remember (which was around the age of 15) I have been writing music. I don't keep a personal journal but I do write music almost everyday. It's become my own way of keeping track of where I am. This process, for the most part, has been a private one. My father passed away in 2003. Exactly six months after his death I wrote 3 songs "Rollerskates, Burnin' and 2by2. They are songs about love loss and connection - plus they're pretty sexy. I don't know where they came from, they just sort of happened, but I feel my father had something to do with it. Those songs are on our first 5 song self-released EP, "Shorty-P".

On March 21, 2004 we played our first show in the basement of my house. It almost didn't happen but my sister Sylvia and my good friend Seth insisted I play and offered to provide instrumental and vocal accompaniment the first time out - the band hasn't changed since.

We had our first show at a local venue on January 10, 2005. From then on, The Long Ranger's popularity has taken off, flexing our mic steez and our dance skills with many genre favorites such as The Go! Team, Tegan and Sara, The Books, and Pretty Girls Make Graves to name a few. We have also had a lot of support from the local musical community. Local indie rock Belle-wethers, Three Imaginary Girls has listed The Long Ranger on several accounts as personal favorites, and two songs "Rollerskates" and "Burnin" have been played on KEXP, and KGRG.

We bring energy and hope through the music we play. We want to inspire people, but mostly, inspire people to shake a ass! A co-worker of mine once overheard a Long Ranger song and said,"It's like I'm sippin on bubble tea in a Japanese airport." I take it as a compliment.
