Pert Near Sandstone
It was roughly a decade ago that Pert Near Sandstone first gathered around a microphone in a Minneapolis basement to record their debut album, Up And Down The River. They cemented their status as linchpins of the Midwestern scene with a series of albums, In late 2016, they released The Discovery Of Honey which featured and was co-produced by original founding member Ryan Young of Trampled by Turtles. A variety of festival appearances such as the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival, as well as sharing bills on the road with the likes of Trampled By Turtles, Del McCoury Band, Sam Bush and more. Their crowing achievement was founding the Blue Ox Music Festival which has featured performances by Greensky Bluegrass, Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Shovels & Rope, Justin Townes Earle, Blitzen Trapper, Margo Price and more. The magical energy of Blue Ox has been captured on their most recent release, Live at Blue Ox 2018, which features 20 tracks from their performances across the 3-day event.
Feeding LeRoy came out of the collaboration of Sonja and Lee's original songs, blending into a unique project, with their songwriting and vocal harmonies as the focus of this bands sound. It's kind of a family affair now, with brother Luke stepping in on the harmonica and long time friend and bassist, Adam Staupe on the upright bass, both adding their vocal harmonies, creating somewhat of a gospel undertone that acts as it's own instrument in the band.
You can find this foursome around the twin ports of Duluth, MN and Superior, WI, but they have also recently taken to the open road, bringing this up north sound to new cities across the nation. Think Gram Parsons and Emmylou meets the Jayhawks... its country music at its core, it's fun, its original, it's Feeding LeRoy.
