about

“Take equal parts rock­a­billy, clas­sic coun­try, honky tonk, and Bak­ers­field, mix them all together, and toss in a great gui­tar player, a rock-solid rhythm sec­tion, and some tasty guest appear­ances on key­boards and pedal steel. Then, chan­nel the ghost of Roy Orbi­son and the spirit of (the still-living and still-great) Sleepy LaBeef into the vocals and what do you get? When Pat Roberts and the Hey­mak­ers did all this, they came up with the bril­liant Lone­some & Blue, newly released on the Elec­tric Lotus Label. Lone­some and Blue, the band’s first release, serves as a mod­ern trib­ute to clas­sic coun­try and rock­a­billy and is a thor­oughly enjoy­able record for any­one who loves these gen­res. The band—Pat Roberts on gui­tar and vocals, Paul Thomas on upright bass, and Ed Michaels on drums—mixes six great clas­sic tunes in with seven Roberts orig­i­nals to put together a really fine record. ”
