The address on songwriter Ben Todd’s 2002 Driver License reads “Hwy 180 W South of SF Bridge, Alma, NM”. This vague location is where Lonesome Shack began. Living in the isolation of southwestern New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness, Todd hunkered down in the shack he built and studied the music of the American folk and blues lineage. Today Lonesome Shack’s songs continue to be informed by these early explorations as they combine the sounds of post-WWII electric country blues with a modern sensibility which plants them firmly in the present.
In 2007 Todd moved to Seattle and within a year joined up with drummer Kristian Garrard (Thousands). Together they recorded and released the “Bound to Die” LP in 2009, “Falling Down on Your Floor” EP in 2009, “Slidin Boa” LP in 2010, and completed two west coast tours and two national tours. With the recent addition of bassist Luke Bergman (Also a member of Thousands) the band has become heavier and more rhythm-focused. The band finds influence in the Georgia drumbeat styles of James Davis, the one chord drone blues of Junior Kimbrough, and the high energy boogie of John Lee Hooker. When performing live, they are known to stir a subdued crowd into a fevered dance party.
With a new full length album “City Man” to be released Oct. 26th, Lonesome Shack will be touring the west coast and Southwest to bring their latest material to new audiences.
