Left Arm Tan

Left Arm Tan (LAT) www.leftarmtan.com - Saving Country Music calls them one of the best kept secrets in Americana. With a singular focus on great songwriting and harmony filled live shows, Left Arm Tan is a band busy redefining Americana.

LAT’s new self-titled album, released Jan 14, 2020, is a swaggering Americana epic built for road trips and late nights. From the opening rocker Mexicali Run to the closing, nostalgic Good Ol’ Days, it is an album unfettered by genres.

LAT’s previous, critically acclaimed albums include El Camino (2018), Lorene (2016), Alticana (2013), Thurm (2012) and Jim (2010).

LAT features Brian Lee (vocals, guitar), Daniel Hines (guitar, vocals), Shawn Light (guitar, vocals), Tim Manders (drums, vocals), Mark Belding (dobro, steel, trumpet) and Joseph Lopez (bass).

Few bands can deliver truly modern music that includes both classic references to Tom Petty and the Allman Brothers, and an artful nod to critical darlings Jason Isbell and Band of Heathens. It is "music that understands that gloss is useless… the songwriting… would be right at home in heavy rotation on CMT.” (Fort Worth Star Telegram)

But while critics and fans seem to quickly understand that LAT delivers great songs, there’s much more to the story. Because you don’t really know LAT until you go to a show… where the guitars crackle to life and the harmonies surround the audience. And it is live that Left Arm Tan becomes more than just a band…they become an approachable friend to the audience. So put the music on, roll down the windows and get your Left Arm Tan amigo.
