Forgiven is the culmination of an incredibly rewarding recording process that sought to and succeeded in getting back to the roots of what makes Los Lonely Boys so special. Jordan decided that he didn't want to put the band into a typical studio situation. Instead, understanding the impact of their live sound and presence he simulated the band's on-stage setting on a sound stage, paying attention to every detail, going so far as to recreate their front-of-house setup. The difference in approach is palpable throughout the record.
While the approach changed, what is constant throughout Forgiven and Los Lonely Boys' entire career is their crafted, nuance-filled song writing, strong musicianship and impeccable harmonies that they pull off with deceptive effortlessness. Their signature mix of conjunto, Tex-Mex, power-blues rock and breezy pop is as potent, and, most importantly, fun as ever.
On May 24 Los Lonely Boys are inviting 10 children from the Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization of Austin and 10 children from Sunshine Camp of Austin to a mentoring event. The 20 kids participating will receive an acoustic guitar provided by First Act along with guitar lessons and the opportunity to get up close and personal with Los Lonely Boys after they perform a short acoustic set. Later that night, at 10:30pm at Saxon Pub, where the band got its start, they will be performing an exclusive, intimate set at a Music for Literacy benefit. Music for Literacy is a non-profit organization providing books for Austin school kids this summer. 100% of ticket sales are going to Music for Literacy. All tickets were sold through Los Lonely Boys' fanclub and are sold out.
Forgiven is the follow-up to 2006's Sacred and 2003's multi-platinum, Grammy-winning self-titled album, which contained the hit, "Heaven." The press fell in love with the band instantly. Guitar World named Henry 2005's Breakthrough Artist and exclaimed: "We have seen the future of blues rock." "The New Yorker" called the band's style a "soulful mix of razor-sharp blues-guitar riffs and impassioned Tex-Mex rock," while "Billboard" noted that "Los Lonely Boys definitely have their own signature." "Drum!" cheered, "A band arrives roughly every decade to remind the world about the enduring coolness of the blues. It was the Allman Brothers in the 70s, Stevie Ray Vaughan in the 80s, Robert Cray in the 90s, and without question, Los Lonely Boys."
