Left Coast Country touring the U.S.; previewing songs from forthcoming full-length, Pines Fly By

PORTLAND, OREGON-BASED STRING BAND LEFF COAST COUNTRY HITS THE ROAD PREVIEWING SONGS FROM FORTHCOMING FULL-LENGTH, PINES FLY BY

Portland, Oregon-based “newgrass” band Left Coast County are hitting the road in support of their forthcoming full-length, Pines Fly By, a ten-track collection of the string band’s approach to tradition, but with a twist.  The album, which will be released in June, finds the band staying true to the bluegrass style, all the while playing it with an intensity – sweaty and rich – that has many calling their sound “newgrass.”

Formed in 2010 from the exploding newgrass scene in Portland, Oregon, Left Coast Country quickly recorded and released their debut full-length, Dark Down and Blue, which features the group’s high-energy, hard-driving originals and their contemporary take on the old bluegrass sound

Following that up with their sophomore, self-titled full-length in 2012, it helped propel their versatile, dynamic sound onto the never-ending tour circuit of North America. Dedication to their craft has made Left Coast Country one of the hardest working, up-and-coming acts in the Northwest.  The statement “for LCC pickin’ is not a hobby, not a job, but a way of life,” (Ben Salmon – Bend Bulletin) could not be any more accurate.

Left Coast Country constantly strives to expand their music and blaze new territory across the country, which has earned them several accolades and awards, including first place in the 13th Annual Northwest String Summit Band Competition in July 2014, being the first ever Portland bluegrass band to do so.

Constantly evolving, their stage performance showcases the group’s synchronous harmonies, beautiful melodies, and intense intricate instrumentation.  Left Coast Country’s live shows are the fusion of traditional and progressive; composed of fiery heartfelt foot stompers, rolling country ballads, and powerful instrumental soundscapes.

This hard work and dedication to the craft has earned them the esteemed pleasure of playing alongside and sharing the stage with musical pioneers such as Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon), Steep Canyon Rangers, Fruition, Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen, Head For The Hills, Danny Barnes, and Hackensaw Boys, to name a few.
