The latest official count is in and the Pacific Northwest’s premier country mess is clocking in at eight funky members! Country Lips are proud to present the first surprise of a jam-packed May. Eliciting memories of the golden era of television Trevor Pendras tears you back into the 21st century with his wet licks and cold stare as the Country Lips perform “Black Water” the first single off their upcoming full length album Nothing to My Name. The video captures the energy and intimacy of the entire Lips Family getting down the only way they know how. So crack open a dog and grab a partner because these boys will be touring all down the West Coast this May!
Country Lips are Kenny Aramaki (piano), Hamilton Boyce (guitar, vocals), Miles Burnett (drums, vocals), Jonah Byrne (fiddle), Gus Clark (accordion, mandolin), Austin Jacobsen (bass), Alex Leake (guitar, vocals) and Trevor Pendras (guitar, vocals). They have been incessantly gigging around the Pacific Northwest since 2010, awakening the potential outlaw in everyone they touch. Dancehalls, dive bars, weddings, or anywhere there is a flat-bed truck and some booze the Country Lips are prepared to bring their timeless mix of old country classics and spicy original tunes.
