Loch Lomond wants you to join them on tour!

Portland's Loch Lomond released a beautiful album called Little Me Will Start a Storm earlier this year and it's just as fantastic now as it was then. As a celebration of the end of summer, and the crisp newness of fall, the band is going on tour! Confirmed dates are listed off to the left there, and more are sure to follow. 

About the band:
After a string of head-turning, critically acclaimed releases on Hush Records, Portland's Loch Lomond has brought their unique brand of raw symphonic chamber pop to Tender Loving Empire. Loch Lomond has released their much anticipated second full length 'Little Me Will Start A Storm' on CD, Vinyl and Digital.

The album was mixed by Adam Selzer (who has recorded all of M Ward's records), Tucker Martine (Laura Veirs, The Decemberists), Kevin Robinson (of Viva Voce), and Jeff Stuart Saltzman.

In addition to employing notable visceral and expert melodic acrobatics, the co-ed sextet of Loch Lomond distinctly incorporates the use of vibraphone, piano, guitars, drums, violin, glockenspiel, bass, and other sonic treatments to foil the even more distinct and arresting voice of lead singer/multi-instrumentalist Ritchie Young. He's able to switch from high-pitched fragility to alto thunder in the turn of a phrase, yet he knows the power of restraint intuitively, saving vocal tornadoes for emotional apexes buoyed by moving arrangements.
