Little Lonely

by Little Lonely

Little Lonely's storytelling evokes Dust Bowl salvation, train ride time machines and roadside general stores. With hushed steel string horizon, echo-drenched guitars and girl group swagger, it's equal parts mirth and quiet reflection from the heartland.

Album Notes
"This is one of those organic folk/rock things that grabs you when you least expect it and doesn't let go. Beginning her career playing in a funeral home when she was 11, you wouldn't want Ms. Lonely to lose her skewed view of things at this point, would you? Subversively mellow stuff that's masking the explosion below. Check it out, it's a winner throughout." Midwest Record

Missouri-born, Los Angeles-based storyteller, Little Lonely, aka Julie Cain, provides a soundtrack for the forgotten American landscape. It’s a frontier dotted with beauty parlors selling transformation, swimming pool apparitions offering salvation, towns submerged in lakes for the sake of progress and road trip promises of lifelong devotion that can never be fulfilled. The self-titled, full-length debut is set for a June 25th, 2013 release.

Produced by multi-instrumentalist, Sean Hoffman (American Music Club, Loch&Key, Linda Perhacs) Little Lonely features accomplished musicians from the world of Indie-Rock, Folk and Americana circles in Los Angeles. These include: Darice Bailey (The Broken West, The Coals), Nic Chaffee (Eels, George Clinton), Greg Eklund  (Everclear, The Oohlas), Joey Galvan (Pete Anderson), Eric Heywood (The Pretenders, Son Volt), Baskerville Jones (The Rebirth), Robby Marshall (John Daversa Band), Heather McIntosh (Norah Jones, Gnarls Barkley), George Sluppick (The Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Mofro). The result combines vocals that recall the all-knowing plaintive wail made up of equal parts Maria McKee and Hope Sandoval with echoes of dime store mysteries for the modern prairieland. Otherworldly, intoxicating and full of longing, Little Lonely clearly evokes a time out of balance. It’s equal parts mirth and quiet reflection from the heartland.

While this may be the debut from Little Lonely, it’s not this little sweetheart of the rodeo’s first foray into music. Julie Cain began her musical career by playing the organ at a funeral home in a suburb of Kansas City. Later, she explored country music through a persona in college known as Bitsy Lee. At its essence, Bitsy Lee was performance art inspired by Cain’s ancestors who roamed the Midwest playing in honky-tonks.

Performing as Bitsy Lee, Cain found a way to imagine her life as if she’d never made her move to California at age 18. Importantly, she also caught the attention of producers, Hoffman, and, prior to that, Greg Eklund (Everclear, The Oohlas) and Geoff Walcha (Everclear, Ben Harper) who co-produced her EP (2005), Interstate Hum. Described as "moody, subtle, intelligent and, just occasionally, a little bit Patsy Cline" by Americana UK, the project led to quite a few music placements in feature films Broken Hill, starring Timothy Hutton and Hurt, starring Melora Walters.  Picture Show (2011), Cain’s self-produced demo with guest performances by Dead Kennedys’ East Bay Ray & Chuck Lindo (Actionslacks, The American Professionals), yielded placement in the short film My Own Private Demon.
