LONEROCK - SCANDINAVIAN COUNTRY THAT ROCKS!!
Lonerock is a new country band from Denmark. All of their songs are written and performed by the band, bringing together elements of modern country rock and Scandinavian songwriting in a completely new way. Letting it all out with catchy hooklines and the big sound of lots of guitars, steel and other stringed instruments.
The story of Lonerock began in 2007, when two musical brothers-in-arms, Erik Preetzmann and Frank Jensen, after a 20- year break, took up writing and producing music together again.
With a handful of new song ideas, they headed to the studio, and together with Canadian writer Nancy Watson, they have worked intensively trying to find the right atmosphere and the right sound for their music.
This let to a number of songs with catchy melodies and arrangements based on guitars, dobro, steel and mandolins.
During Spring 2008 two new members completes the Lonerock line-up: Anders Lampe; an extreamly gifted and talented Danish guitarist, and Ole Albrechtsen who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, not to mention a beautiful steel guitar and dobro
May 2011 Lonerock released their debut album; Down Moody Street, receiving
lots of airplay on both Danish National Radio and local stations around the
11 songs with the characteristic Lonerock sound, and with a number of
competent Danish and American musicians playing on the album, produced by
the Danish top producer; Soren Jacobsen.
The name Lonerock?
Watching a TV series on early settlers to the U.S. Pacific Northwest, one of the band members discovered the town of Lonerock tucked away at the end of a gravel road in a beautiful Oregonian valley. A solitary place in a wide open country with a rough frontier edge, in fact and name it perfectly captured the country rock spirit of a band 5,000 miles away.
The guys of Lonerock aren't looking back just yet. We're writing and recording new songs at a furious pace and a lot of good stuff is on the way. So don't be a stranger — Come back and see us soon!
