Finding themselves laid-off from their jobs within weeks of each other, Lohio leader Greg Dutton and guitarist/songwriter Josh Verbanets decided to fill their days of unemployment constructing a recording studio. They spent weeks in Dutton’s garage; building out the space in which the bulk of the band’s latest album, History, the Destroyer would later be recorded. Musically, the album shows no signs of that winter’s manual labor. It’s all effortless sixties pop, with hints of country and 90’s Brit Pop tied in. Since its recent release, History, the Destroyer has been named as one of the year’s best efforts by people such as the Pittsburgh Post Gazette and 91.3fm WYEP.
Lohio is based in Pittsburgh, PA. Since their formation in 2006, the band has garnered national airplay on stations such as KCRW and KUSF, found placement on MTV, and shared the stage with a range of acts including David Bazan, The Avett Brothers, American Music Club, Tokyo Police Club, Ricki Lee Jones, Jennifer O'Connor and Ra Ra Riot. Both of their recorded efforts have been well received, earning year end credits from various local and national media sources. Recommended!
