During the past ten years there has been a current of tremendous change in Country music. But while commercial Top 40 Nashville Country loses market share, another voice for authentic Country continues to gain momentum. Beneath this changing current are the shifting sands of the new voice of Country some call Americana. This is the voice of Lost Country and its newest guiding light is the Atlanta-based Kate James and Lost Country. Three years ago, Atlanta singer Kate James teamed up with drummer Chuck Kelly and Bill Brooks, a blues guitarist, to put a band together and started out in the Atlanta Rockabilly scene playing classic country. Later adding bassist Joe Fleming and Mark Van Allen on pedal steel, they originally played country covers. The band's popularity soared behind Kate's sultry renditions of Pasty Cline and Loretta Lynn songs. In 2003 the band, then named Kate and the Retreads, were voted Atlanta's Best Country Band of the year! Their brand of country seemed to appeal to a mainstream Atlanta fanbase as they now play almost exclusively originals in rock and roll clubs. Playing frequently on Atlanta's Radio Free Georgia, WRFG's Peach State Music Festival and local Atlanta rock clubs, they're now branching out into Chappel Hill, NC, and Birmingham, AL, Columbus, GA and Nashville as well as a label showcase at South By Southwest in Austin in March 2004. A Spring Tour is planned in the Midwest and East Coast for 2004 behind their new release on Hayden's Ferry Records, "HomeWrecker, HeartBreaker". Kate James and Lost Country have placed years of song writing and performing experience into their freshman release. "HomeWrecker, HeartBreaker" combines the sound of those age-old gems by Merle, Patsy and Johnny as brought to the world years ago. Blending each member's unique musical talents, the band presents a fresh approach to music that can no longer be heard on radio. Their music is not a throw-back, but respects and honors the past. Their style recreates what traditional music is supposed to be, honest and heartfelt.

These guys were voted the best country act in Atlanta in 2003. They play straight from the heart old-school country. The kind our parents grew up with. If Patsy Cline were alive - she'd be in the front row.
