The style of the band is pleasing to a variety of audiences. It’s blues and rock based, filled with pop harmonies served with a Tex-Mex flavor. The brothers live at San Angelo, Texas.
Los Lonely Boys’ follow-up album “Sacred” was a commercial letdown, but this year the release of “Forgiven” has lifted the boys once again.
“It was going back to the basics, so to speak,” Henry said. “Our new producer dude, Steve Jordan, is a great guy with really great ideas.”
The album was recorded live in the studio.
“We set up live in the studio like we were setting up for a concert,” Henry said. “It’s just your basic, organic real live stuff.”
Because of pressure from the record label, “Sacred,” he said, was put together in a hurry and much of the material was written in the studio.
The brothers took the lesson from the “Sacred” studio sessions to rededicate themselves to write and play the music that is closest to their hearts.
Los Lonely Boys’ spirit comes across in live show, which, perhaps even more than the albums, explains their popularity.
“A big part of it is just being able to relate to the people on stage,” Henry said. “We want to portray the truth, not some kind of bullshit that people put on TV or you hear on a record that you don’t know what’s real and what’s not. There’s nothing to us — it’s just the brothers that play music. I think people can really feel that and feel the goodness behind us. We do believe in the good Lord and we respect that naturally. I think everybody can pick up on that. There ain’t nothing wrong with goodness.”
In May, Los Lonely Boys recorded a recently released Christmas album, “Christmas Sprit.”
“It was something we wanted to do our whole lives, especially now that we’ve got kids,” Henry said. “It’s mainly for them. We all have children now. We’re rock ’n’ roll daddies.”
