Left Coast Country is a modern string band formed in 2010 from the exploding newgrass scene in Portland, OR
Their debut, Dark Down and Blue features the group’s high-energy, hard-driving originals and their contemporary take on the old bluegrass sound. Their second, self-produced and self-titled album propelled 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,” (B. 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. At home in Portland, find them at renowned venues such as the Aladdin Theater, The Doug Fir Lounge, and Mississippi Studios.
In July 2014, Left Coast Country took home first place in the 13th Annual Northwest String Summit Band Competition, 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.
Since 2010, they have had 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, Hackensaw Boys, Pert’ Near Sandstone, Brothers Comatose, and Shook Twins, to name a few.
The band recorded their third full-length, Pines Fly By, and are preparing to release it in the summer/fall of 2015.
