Hailing from San Angelo, TX, Los LonelyBoys are a sibling trio whose music draws equally from Rock, Blues, Tex-Mex, Conjunto,and Tejano.
Such a combination is shaped by the band’s three brothers:guitarist Henry Garza, bassist JoJo Garza, and drummer Ringo Garza, Jr. Thesiblings’ father, Ringo Garza, Sr., was a member of another sibling band, theFalcones, who played conjunto music around Texas during the ’70s and ’80s.After that group broke up, Garza went solo, backed by his three sons evenbefore they reached their teens. The family relocated to Nashville in the1990s, and gradually the sons emerged as a group separate from their father.
After moving back to Texas, the boys recorded their debutalbum, 2003′s Los Lonely Boys, at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales studio in Austinwith Nelson sitting in. Epic Records picked the album up for major-labeldistribution in March 2004, resulting in a high chart placement for the album’slead single, “Heaven,” as well as a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance thefollowing year. The Boys released their eagerly awaited sophomore album,Sacred, in 2006, and Forgiven followed in 2008. A holiday album, ChristmasSpirit, also appeared in 2008, and the band hit the road for an acoustic tourone year later, punctuated by the release of the covers-only 1969 EP. Theyreleased their last recording for Epic, Spirit of Christmas, in 2008.
Though touring nearly constantly, the trio has stayeddeeply rooted to community causes. They recorded the single “Solid Ground,”about the Family Justice Center of Erie County (which won the Austin-based CTKFoundation’s Heart and Soul grant for 2009). The FJC provides services forvictims of domestic violence. Written with poet Nancy Ghoston, “Solid Ground”was released in January of 2010.
During touring in the spring of 2010, JoJo Garza developedvocal problems. Physicians discovered lesions on his vocal cords andrecommended that he rest them, causing the band to cancel its April and Mayappearances in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. This also pushed back the releaseof their debut independent offering, Keep on Giving: Acoustic Live!, theirfirst release on the Lonelytone/Playing in Traffic imprints; the album waseventually issued in the fall of 2010. Los Lonely Boys returned with theirfirst new studio offering of all original material in three years with 2011′sRockpango (a made-up Spanish word that the band translates to English as “rockparty”).
