The Lawrence Peters Outfit
The Lawrence Peters Outfit
The Lawrence Peters Outfit play un-ruined country music, a term Lawrence coined to describe the band’s original, deep-rooted, honky tonk sound. They are 2019 and 2018 Ameripolitan Award nominees, in the Best Honky Tonk Group category (cast your vote at http://vote.ballotblaster.com/#/webBallots/79), and two time winners of the “Best Country And Western Entertainer” (Chicago Music Awards)

Best known for his lead vocal on "The Old Black Hen", for the watershed Songs: Ohia- Magnolia Electric Company album, Peters leads the "Outfit" through his own finely crafted originals, and cherry-picked classics. The band is a super-group of Chi-Town pickers, including Matt Gandurski on lead guitar, Dave Sisson on rhythm guitar and harmonies, and Josh Piet on upright bass.

When Jeremy Pinnell released OH/KY in the summer of 2015 to stunned acclaim, it felt like an entire career compressed into one knock-out album. Hailed as a “ming-blowingly good” (Greg Vandy, KEXP) “tutorial on classic country music” (Popmatters), Pinnell’s debut immediately differentiated as authentic and unflinching. Dogged touring through Europe and the states and celebrated radio
sessions followed, cementing Pinnell’s position as a no-fuss master of his craft.


His 2017 album Ties of Blood and Affection presents a canny lateral move. Instead of doubling down on the stark themes and values of his debut, this sophomore album finds Pinnell finding comfort in his own skin and achieving the redemption only hinted at in his previous batch of haunted songs. Here Pinnell joyfully embraces the working life, family obligations, and faith. His new stories delve into acceptance and survival, all the while investigating his most challenging chapter yet: adulthood. While “If life don’t get any better / I’m alright with this” isn’t an out-right triumph, it’s an honest revelation.
You can feel the room breathe and get a sense of these musicians eyeballing each other as their performances are committed directly to thick analog tape. Honest and careworn, Jeremy’s voice can touch on wry, jubilant, and debauched - all in a single line. Ties of Blood and Affection offers a fair dose resolution to Jeremy’s story. At his best, Jeremy Pinnell chronicles the joy and sorrow of being human, which is the best that anyone could do.

"Hardscrabble honky-tonk at its best, nodding to Johnny Cash and Buck Owens in equal measure. Ties of Blood and Affection is a stellar collection that could earn Pinnell comparisons to Sturgill Simpson.” - ROLLING STONE

David Quinn
David Quinn got his start playing drums around Chicago which lead straight onto touring with other bands across the country. In a large wanderingsabbatical toward the west coast, he wrote and recorded his own work while traveling through the passing trees and winding elevations. Even withhis love of the brisk mountain desert heat, his kindred roots brought him back to the midwest, eventually landing him back in Chicago. Armed witha large catalog of singles, he connected with the revered Andrija Tokic - of Alabama Shakes, Luke Bell, and The Deslondes - at Bomb Shelter Studios and gathered key players to create his first LP, ‘Wandering’ Fool’. In June 2018, David Quinn joined Dave Roe - Johnny Cash’s bassist, Jimmy Lester - drummer for Billy Joe Shaver and Micah Hulscher - keyboardist for Margo Price, down in Nashville to create this twangy masterpiece. Blending these iconic musicians with his Midwest cosmic-country style has shaped this first studio album into a unique twist on dreamy classic country, something we’ve all been missing.
