Crafting songs layered with nuance and sincerity, The Long Lost, an Americana group from Chicago, expresses complex emotion in an upfront style. Front women and songwriters Avalos and Burke convey a distinct voice, shaped by influences both past and present. With respectful nods to the groundwork of early rock n’ roll and ‘60s country, as well welcoming the guidance of the modern folk-rock genre, the band succeeds in capturing a singular, unique style. 

Continually honing their sound, The Long Lost has grown into a five piece outfit playing off their Americana sound. Although their music has evolved, Avalos and Burke offer variety in their performance, often returning to their roots as a duo and playing their songs in the natural, raw style they were created. 


...One-of-a-kind musical experience...
The Long Lost is one band you will be glad you found; with their knack for writing enticing stories delivered by vocal prowess and intriguing arrangements, The Long Lost will have you falling in love with their music.
— Bryon William, Indie Spoonful
