New Album Cover Live, Levi and Sam
The Lonely Ones are an original folk / Americana band from Rochester, NY.

Their songs range from boot-stomping to heartbreaking, all with trademark tight harmonies and songwriting.

Their sound is resonant of the American countryside, wide open and rich with storytelling.

We are beginning our run of Saturday shows at The Little Theater this fall; check out our shows page for times and dates.

After the end of the year we will most likely be hibernating until spring.  Our three albums are all available digitally and make for great companions during the long winter months!


Thanks to all our fans who have been supporting us as we play out this season! If you haven't had a chance to catch us yet check out our Shows Page, as there are new updates and plenty of opportunities headed your way!


The season is underway and we've made some updates to the listing for our upcoming shows. Take a peek!


Happy Groundhog Day! Wait, that was Thursday? ARE YOU SURE???

Shameless and feeble pop culture references aside check out our growing list of 2017 gigs on our Shows page, which include Abilene Bar and Lounge, a return to Mullers Cider House, and our favorite old standby The Little Theater Cafe.

Also, don't forget that we still have a shiny new full-length album for sale on line and at gigs: "This Time Tomorrow", featuring the title track which bares the same crazy name!

Well wishes on behalf of the band and we hope to see you out there in the real world real soon!


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from The Lonely Ones! We are taking a little reprieve from the hot gigging action we experienced a few months ago but never fear: we've got some irons in the fire, including but not limited to making good on our Kickstarter video rewards in the very near future. Meanwhile enjoy your loved ones and a drink or two and we'll see you good folks on the other side in 2017!


Good morning! And happy-almost-Halloween.

Our newest album, This Time Tomorrow, is now available for on-line purchase via digital download through iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, and Google Play. Check out our Discography page for more info.

Also check out the new listing for a last minute gig this coming Thursday in Fairport on our Shows page. We still look forward to seeing you in Naples this coming Saturday night at Roots Cafe. Enjoy!


I see it's been a little while since I've updated the website. September kept us pretty busy with many live performances and opportunities to spread the word about our new album, "This Time Tomorrow".

Now that we've had a moment to breathe, we'll begin thinking about making our new record available digitally, as our first two albums already are, through this website.

There's also the small matter of fulfilling the last of our Kickstarter reward obligations; the video dedications. If you contributed to our album fundraiser at a level that promised that reward please stay tuned: this last piece of the puzzle takes considerably more time to create and fulfill than the others, and we definitely appreciate your patience as we work out this last detail!

For now thank you to everyone for your support along the way, whether you bought a CD, contributed to a fundraiser, or came out to one of our shows: bringing the music we create to people is why we do what we do, and by definition it wouldn't be possible without all of you.

Meanwhile there's still a few gigs on the itinerary ("Shows" page), and the digital rendition of our new album to look forward to for anyone who wishes to purchase and enjoy our music through the convenience of download, so please stay tuned!


Our new album, "This Time Tomorrow", has arrived! We started recording this full length project in January, began saving for it last November, and now the CDs are finally here.

Please join us at one of our upcoming Little Theater gigs or at the Clothesline Festival this month: This Time Tomorrow is now available for purchase! (See our Shows page for gig details.)

If you are owed a copy of the album via our Kickstarter fundraising campaign please be patient and stay tuned as we organize it's distribution.


Just a quick update: the new album is in production! Our shiny new CDs should arrive in time for our September Little Theater gigs. If you contributed to our Kickstarter fundraiser you'll be hearing from us soon about your backer rewards. Stay tuned!


Sorry it's been so long! We've been busy with album completion planning, kickstarter reward planning, and enjoying the summer.

Brian at Redbooth has been busy finalizing the mixing and mastering of our brand new full length album and we anticipate hearing the first proof of this very shortly. We've already heard one track, and are very excited with the results!

We'll have more news soon, including an email to our kickstarter backers to detail the release of rewards. For now we have a slew of gigs coming up in late August and through all the weekends in September, so please check out our Shows page for information on where and when you can come see us live!


Just a quick update: (1) Our new album is getting mixed as we speak! (2) Our live album is mixed and organized and ready for "band scrutiny"!! (3) Come join us at Sticky Lips Juke Joint this coming Saturday night!!!


Aaaaaaand... we're done tracking our new album! Great job Levi, Sam, and Brian for getting the work done in one shift. This is very exciting because it means we can start the wheels turning on the next steps, which are comping, mixing, and mastering, very soon.

We're all very happy with how Brian at Redbooth is making our new record sound, and are excited for it's release. Stay tuned for more progress details!


Work continues on the new album, but before I get to that: check out our "shows" page for details on our upcoming Sticky Lips BBQ Juke Joint gig! Be sure to check back to that page to see what other shenanigans and scheduling may arise in the future...

Due to an unavoidable scheduling conflict we had to skip out on our former "last studio date" earlier this month. Take heart: we have rescheduled two half session which we ought to be finishing up in early June. Then we'll be ready to start the wheels turning on the mixing and mastering phase of our masterly plan.

Meanwhile we're still working on those sweet Kickstarter perks we promised, not the least of which will be our first ever Live Album. It's a slow process, but stay tuned!


April has been a busy month. We've locked down the scheduling for the last of the Kickstarter Reward gigs (Private Events on our "Shows" page) and organized the new album line-up, brainstormed potential song transitions, and decided on auxiliary percussion ideas and extra tracking usage based on the rough mixes.

We also had a great time playing for Roots Cafe, Bernunzio's Music Store, and the runners of the Flower City Challenge Half Marathon at Mile Five on the course!

One of the last creative steps in the process of making our new full length studio album is our final tracking session at the studio this coming Saturday. After that we'll be able to move the project along to it's final stages of mixing, mastering, and ultimately production of CDs. We're getting close and are very excited!


It felt pretty good to dish out our first gig since December this past Friday evening. Big thanks to Roots Cafe in Naples for hosting us and the energetic crowd for sticking around to enjoy our efforts. Next up is Bernunzio Uptown Music on East Ave, Rochester. Check out our Shows page for details!

New Album update correction: vocal tracking is ALMOST done; Sammy has one more song to hit, in addition to whatever axillary percussion and last minute what-have-you that we'll tackle on our last recording session in early May. Now that the hard stuff is over we get to do fun things like choose song order and work on packaging design. The project is really coming together, thanks to Brian over at Redbooth. We're very excited!


Levi and Samantha finished tracking vocals in the studio today! We've got one more tracking day scheduled in early May for violin, auxiliary percussion, and other sundry items, and then we'll be ready to mix this new album!

In the mean time please check out our April gigs on the "Shows" page!


Our friend and family Aaron Pridmore laid down some sweet organ and piano tracks for us this past Monday. Aaron is very talented on the keys, so needless to say we are very excited to have him as a part of our album project.

Only a few weeks left in March: check out our "Shows" page, as we are now up to three fun gigs for the month of April!


Lots of exciting developments with our new album project! Levi and Sam are half way through vocal tracking, a special guest and friend of the band will be tracking some organ on Monday, and we just wrapped up a productive band meeting where we budgeted and talked about design ideas and moving the project forward.

AND we got to hear the first "rough mix" of the album tracking thus far. It's a long process but we're getting very excited about our new future CD!


The Roots Cafe gig in Naples has been rescheduled to early-mid April. See our "shows" page for details.

Also, new-album guitar and piano tracks are recorded! (Great job, Levi!)


Our Roots Cafe gig has either been canceled or postponed. Stay tuned for details...


Kickstarter success! The campaign is over: 58 backers helped us raise $3,376 for our in-progress, upcoming, studio recorded, full length album. Thank you. Check back here for project updates!


Bass is tracked for all twelve songs-in-progress, and thanks to all our awesome backers we met our kickstarter goal: what a day!
