The Lonetones / Press

“The Lonetones have perfected contemporary Appalachian music.”

Alec Cunningham - Blank Newspaper

"Here I was, a local music writer and I had never heard The Lonetones live. What an idiot. I’ll know better next time, as my mouth dropped a mere 45 seconds in. I stopped what I was doing to soak in what was one of the best sets of the weekend."

Rusty Odom - Blank Newspaper

“Despite its mountain-folk heritage, the group has been likened to a number of indie-rock outfits. Ever open to listener interpretation, the group is accessible to a wide array of fans and comfortably fits nearly any venue”

Jer Cole - Knoxville News Sentinel

“The Lonetones have developed into a genre-bending group that doesn't quite fit into any niche and instead feels right almost everywhere. If the band has a spiritual equivalent in a better-known act, it would have to be Wilco.”

Wayne Bledsoe - Knoxville News Sentinel

“The LoneTones specialize in a singular approach to Appalachian pop that's almost unimaginably sweet and certain to please even the most discerning fan of Americana, alt-country and old-time string ensembles.”

Andy Kesler - msn.com

“The Lonetones are fantastic on stage with the kind of sound that takes your soul on a joy ride! Their professionalism is outstanding. Bottom line... these are fine musicians and their new CD, Modern Victims, is one of the best releases of 2012.”

Reida Hill Gillespie - General Manager, Relix Variety Theatre

“the tradition they tap becomes only part of the overall equation; these engaging encounters could be considered radio-ready regardless of the environs. To say this is an outstanding effort doesn’t even begin to describe it.”

“Their music rings from the mountains of Appalachia with a reverent, enduring and, at times, conflicted spirit. The band mates shoulder their geography with craft and care.”

Bradley Hanson - Knoxville Voice
