The Long Gone Lonesome Boys are John Milne, a California native, and Patrick Penney, a Georgia peach-pit. But they sound like brothers when they sing their beatiful alt-country tunes together. If you like drinkin' songs, cheatin' songs, Homer and Jetro-style comedy tunes and weepers, you'll love these guys. Backing them up are Pat Keiner (steel/mandolin), Jesse Woelfel (bass) and Leslie Walle-Santos (drummer). Their songwriting has made them finalists at this year's Merlefest Songwriting Competition. Here's what Rennie Sparks (of the Handsome Family) has to say about them: 'Your record is really beautiful. Congratulations. Great to hear that you too are inspired by those magical Louvins.'
