Songs of Our Friends— a new EP by Lemont will bring back memories of the Texas Troubadors, the great blues legends, and the rock and roll soul of the 1970s. Throughout each track, threads of sympathy and intrigue about the range of emotions— from heart wrenching to joyful exuberance— that comprise this journey we call life. 

Lemont, is the eclectic band bringing to life a new set of songs by Pennsylvania native Jason McIntyre. Now living in Denver, Colorado Jason has been a familiar face to the Central Pennsylvania music scene for the past two decades with groups like The Rustlanders, Little Townes, and The Contraband. Along side Jason stand an impressively talented line-up of musical souls, longtime collaborators and friends. Guitarist Junior Tutwiler and bassist Corry Drake from The Rustlanders, fiddler Daniel Collins, vocalist Kate Twoey, and keyboardist James Harton from The Contraband, and the infectious beat of drummer Kevin Lowe build the sonic landscape that highlight the lyric sensibilities of McIntyre’s writing.

 Lemont is a group inspired by the music of the great rock and roll bands of the 1970s, the famed Texas Troubadours, and the great blues legends. Rocking and melodic, thoughtful and witty, reflective and socially conscious Lemont takes listeners on a musical journey through the hills and backroads of central Pennsylvania transversing the landscape with a sympathy and intrigue for the human complexities that face us all.
Their new self produced 11 song record is a testament to their craft as writers and performers. Recorded over the past year in Central Pennsylvania, Denver Colorado, and Hollywood California, and mix and mastered by the legendary Tom “Bone” Edmonds (Todd Rundgren, Isley Brothers, Lenny Kravitz) the album brings to life a longtime musical journey between friends. Interweaving sounds of slide guitar and fiddle, driving rhythms from eras passed, and inspired vocals create a rich tapestry of sound that is uniquely their own— uniquely Lemont.
