"Launch Night of the Debut Album Run Free Right Now was one of the best gigs I have seen all year. They are an amazing live band! They are really really good so if you get the chance to see them you should. They do a wide spectrum of music from RnB, funk, blues, country, folk. Excellent! They are such fun!
Green Grass is one of my favourite songs of the year."
Mike Davies, Alternative Roots Music, BRUM Radio
Lowlifes and High Times is the follow up album to The Lost Notes’ critically acclaimed debut album Run Free Right Now. These new songs celebrate the ups and downs of journeymen, despots, sleazeballs, fools, the planet and the consciously idle.
They are a 5-piece band based in Moseley, Birmingham, UK, where politics, revelry, misery and glee abound. The principal songwriters are Ben and Oli. Oli likes folk and Ben digs jazz. Both are stubborn. So each seeks to exert their own subtle influence on the music. The result is part folk with a drag of soul roots, a slug of gospel, or downright country with a thump of jazz around the edges. They write songs for chin-strokers, foot-stompers, head-nodders and those who like to partake in the dark art of inarticulate dancing and hollering. It happens. And they love it. All delivered in glorious 3 part harmonies.
