Lonesome Locomotive is a California Rock and Soul band, based in San Francisco. The group is currently recording their first full length LP, to follow up its self-titled EP from 2013. "LL's live performance is passionate and visceral, featuring raw, soulful vocals, hard-driving rhythms, and powerful guitar sounds. Their music conjures up American roots, with a naked eagerness that feels fresh today."
The core band is comprised of singer-songwriter Michael Rosen, Bay Area native drummer Erin Cassidy, bassist John-Paul McLean (Melvin Seals & JGB), and consummate keyboard and organist Jordan Feinstein (Jordan & The Ritual). Guitarmageddon cofounder Sean Leahy often joins the group on lead guitar duties.
LL introduced themselves to San Francisco in a big way last year at the city's annual bash, Jerry Day. They have visited the Pacific Northwest with several tours, and have been a mainstay at Pet Projekt's and RailRoad Earth's Hangtown Halloween Ball in Placerville, CA. With a national tour planned for this Fall season, behind their first full-length album, and their impassioned, honest performances, Lonesome Locomotive is a California Rock group to keep tabs on!
