Ep 13 - Song 6: "I Won't Be the One" by Lindgren & Lewis

"Iowa’s music scene bids welcome to newcomers Kevin Lindgren and Tommy Lewis. Blending southern twang and Midwest soul, the Ohio native Lindgren and Texas boy Lewis were both performing as solo singer-songwriters across southern Iowa when they joined forces in January 2013. Kevin’s dark but contemplative lyrics drape minor chords while Tommy’s charcoal filtered vocals fill the room with what he happily describes as 'honky folk.' Mixing acoustic guitars, rotgut harmonica riffs, and a car full of assorted instruments, Lindgren & Lewis look destined to make an impact on the Iowa sound."

"Kevin Lindgren and Tommy Lewis were already singer-songwriters when they joined in January 2013 to form the Americana duo Lindgren & Lewis. Setting off on a run of live shows deemed the 'Heartaches and Whiskey' tour, they quickly gained a passionate following around Southern Iowa for their high energy shows, witty lyrics, and for the multitude of instruments they use to convey the Americana sound. By June, they had already been named by Des Moines music review The Insider Sessions as 'one of the best new bands of 2013' and had played Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Texas shows. Opening for national acts such as Granger Smith and Earl Dibbles, Jr., Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Dunville, and Zach Dubois, they capped off their inaugural year with a three night stint at the Silverton Casino in Las Vegas December 6-8.

"2014 started off with a bang as the “Twang and Soul Revival” tour took Kevin, Tommy, and new addition Samantha Lewis to Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee, finishing off the first month of touring in the music capitol, Nashville.

"Kevin now lives in Lamoni, IA and spends off time with his family. Tommy splits time between Houston and Nashville and spends his off time fishing in the Gulf Coast water."
