From a tradition of music rooted in heritage and home, honesty and hurt, sorrow and sunsets, emerge Lost Immigrants. They are country music. They are rock. They are pop. They are blues. They are saints. They are sinners. They are idiots, and they are fools. They are Texas music. Lost Immigrants formed in fall 2004, when longtime friends Craig Hinkle and James Dunning agreed to work on small collection of songs and an American music project. That collaboration led to weekly rehearsals, monthly gigs and frequent trips down Texas highways. Hinkle and Dunning met in college, played in a band that went on to evolve and emerge as a noted performance and songwriting powerhouse of the late 1990s and early ’00s. A move to Nashville, Tenn., secured a record deal, but also lead to several original members parting ways to pursue new interests. After several years and even more miles, two of these original members have been reunited. And the musical powerhouse is once again lighting the collective souls of everyone who listens. “The Immigrants joined together on a journey,” writes Craig Hinkle, “a journey that, without knowing, would take them through nearly every stage of life and places in between. And somewhere along they way, they lost themselves.” The journey would also lead to new recruits and soon-to-be dear friends. Sean Isbell (lead guitar) joined the band to help round out the sound, bringing a unique musical ear and phrasing to the group's instrumentation. Many others would come and go as the band sought a foothold in the Texas country music circuit. Pulling a little from a variety of genres, the music of Lost Immigrants spans the entire Americana spectrum. So much so, the band seeks only to be known as a “American music”: the very best of country, Southern rock, blues and pop melodies. Their influences are as wide-reaching as their aspirations -- Tom Petty, Skynyrd, Charlie Robison, George Jones, Counting Crows and U2, to name a few. But instead of emulating these famous acts, the members of Lost Immigrants seek to join their ranks and create their own unique sound for the world to enjoy. So take a moment to introduce yourself to Lost Immigrants. The music is memorable; the songwriting, sublime. Chances are, you won’t be disappointed.

I bought this CD when they played at Sams burger joint in San Antonio. This is the only CD I have listened to since then. It has really good songs that jump from slow to upbeat! Love their style....My friends and family are catching on...Hopefully I can get them to play at my house....

Wow. I'm not sure what else to say. This album's been in my CD player since I got it and every track is better than the last. The songs bounce between country and rock, but it's all good across the board. If you're the kind of person who likes to listen to your iPod on shuffle, you'll only need to listen to this album. The music is diverse and flat-out awesome! You'll definitely play the hell out of this one in 2010.

This CD hasn't left my player since I got it. The Lost Immigrants are a killer live band and this CD does a great job of capturing that, plus two new studio tracks. How cool is that? I recommend you get the CD then go see the band when they come to a venue near you.

Dug the hell out of the InStore performance on Radio Free Texas from Lone Star Music. Great music and these guys are probably a blast to hang out with.

I love the cd. The songs "Let's Drive" and "Maybe December" are my favorites, but they're all great. I hope these guys come to Texarkana some time. I'd love to see them live.
