Appalachian-flavored folk meets with esoteric rock of a decidedly graceful nature in the Knoxville-based Lonetones’ craft.

A band made up of nine musicians for the New York area creating a mash-up of Balkan and gypsy jazz sounds with North American music that make for a melting-pot of genres.
Compared by audiences to Kate Bush, Bjork, and Regina Spektor, Decomposing In Paris forge enthralling and hypnotic beats that penetrate through atmospheric soundscapes. Essential to the artful and experimental signature sound are composer and classical pianist Aoife Lynch as well as guitarist and bassist Garvin Clements. Lynch creates the music’s undercurrent with enchanting piano and percussion arrangements, while Clements embellishes with poetic lines, samples, and effects to construct a unique aura of texture. This cocktail of amazing songs, powerful lyrics, spellbinding sound, and intoxicating show is a must see experience.
