The Long Lost is a female-fronted Americana group from the Chicago area, lead by Andi Avalos and Katie Burke. Their stylistic vocals are used to tell stories of loss, love, and all of the beautiful conundrums that confound real people in everyday life. The Long Lost blends classic American music with modern day tales. Raised on classic country such as Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton with a newfound love for contemporary folk artists such as The Head and the Heart and The Lumineers, The Long Lost have achieved a sound that evokes the rootsy feeling of growing up in the Midwest.


...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
