Back in the dead heat of the summer, L Shape Lot feature on HBO Series East Bound & Down, stopped into visit Gaffney. Mixing a healthy amount of musical chops, honest, and creative songwriting, powerful stage presence and well sung four-part harmonies, L Shape Lot creates an original and dynamic American sound based in country, rock, bluegrass and roots/folk music. Their lively sound explores new ground, while still paying homage to their predecessors. L Shape Lot is from Wilmington, NC and consists of four members: Eric Miller (Acoustic guitar, vocals), Alex Lanier (electric, acoustic guitar, vocals) Rick Williams ( 6 string electric bass, upright bass, vocals) and John Kovalski (drums, vocals).
Their high-energy live shows have become a hot ticket at both night clubs and music festivals of all types. This group of veteran musicians has been perfecting their sound for over 8 years. In 2009, the band completed their second full-length studio release, Looks Like Snow, and earned excellent press and numerous honors including Encore Magazine’s Best Band and The Beat Magazine’s Best Country Band. They have become the go-to roots band in the area for touring national acts, sharing the stage with the Avett Brothers, Peter Frampton, Drew Emmit from Leftover Salmon, Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, Chatham County Line, and most recently Railroad Earth. 2010 finds LSL moving beyond the confines of their coastal stomping grounds to serve up their unique brand of “on your feet” Americana throughout the Southeastern US.

Born June 18th, 1982 in Athens – a place known as much for its historic, rich, and electric music scene as it is for its largest resident: The University of Georgia, Matt began taking an interest in the guitar at an early age. Over the last 12 years, Matt has showcased his talents in many ways, including contributing to the Christian group Souls Forgiven and the classic rock cover band Assfault. He currently plays in his blues-influenced, southern rock band The Rattlers and has been invited onstage by Kevn Kinney to join Drivin’n’Cryin during their encore set at the 40 Watt Club in Athens. His guitar playing can also be heard in radio commercials for an assortment of businesses and industries. In 2010, Matt reached out to Clay Hinson (Bass) and Woody Hughes(Drums) and started working on his career. Music of choice for the group was straight forward Blues/Rock. Playing shows in 2010 at different venues like Mikes Down Under in Jefferson, Ga were mostly packed houses.

Jeff’s shows were already a big success in Charlotte and Greenville, now he’s found a mid point here for the 2 cities and gaining even more fans in Gaffney South Carolina. The limos you may have seen out front are his fans from both Charlotte and Greenville. If you have not seen a show like this in the bigger cities, it’s hard to described the passion and effort put into this form of art. This session of poetry usually has an instrumental band performing in the background along with a painter that sells his work after the show which makes for a really cool session. Please visit this website for info on the show. www.wyldamerica.com
