The Long Lost
The Long Lost, a female-fronted Americana group from the Chicago area, puts vocal style and storytelling front and center. The Long Lost blends classic American music with modern day stories. Inspired by the old school country such as Johnny Cash and current folk sounds like The Head and the Heart and The Lumineers, The Long Lost's music evokes the rootsy feeling of growing up in the Midwest. Front women Katie Burke (vocals, guitar, piano) and Andi Avalos (vocals, guitar, violin) lead the group, backed by Kevin McMahon (bass) and Brian Doherty (percussion).
