Entering their sixth year, The Little Lord Street Band have put the runs on the board.
The Perth four-piece have been crowned Best Country Act three years straight at the West Australian Music Industry awards on the strength of their dynamic live show and three acclaimed EP releases - the latest, AMRAP chart topping ‘Waking Up Next To You’ including the WAM Song of the Year (Country) ‘Maybe I’m Just In Love’.
They’ve toured as hard as any band can – playing hundreds of stages, equally comfortable and charming set up in the corner of a country pub or playing marquee touring support – including 2019 highlights Gomez (UK), Justin Townes Earle (USA) and Ruby Boots (USA via WA).
The duelling, dueting, danceable songs of songwriters James Rogers and Natasha Shanks have proven festival favourites at Bigsound (QLD), Out on the Weekend(VIC), St Kilda Festival (VIC), In The Pines, Fairbridge, Nukara and Nannup Folk Festivals in Western Australia.
But at heart they’re a quartet of music nerds, missing one line from their resume – their own full-length album pressed on wax.
And so it is that in 2020 The Little Lord Street Band release their debut long-player ‘A Minute of Another Day’, recorded at RADA Studios with producer/engineer Dan Carroll.
Upbeat first single ‘Frankie’s Back in Town’ hit the AMRAP charts yet again, and picked up nominations in the International Songwriting Competition (Rock) and WAM Song of the Year competition (both ‘Rock’ and ‘Country’) in 2019-20.
Latest single ‘Fighting for Air’ showcases the band’s ability to pull out a show-stopping emotional slow-burner. Played on both Triple J and Double J, it was also added to high rotation on ABC Country.
‘Minute of Another Day’ is not only an astoundingly accomplished and rewarding debut album: it is also The Little Lord Street Band’s own reward for their first half-decade of hard work.
