Country / Progressive Country
Together, LANco is Brandon Lancaster (lead vocals), Chandler Baldwin (bass), Jared Hampton (keyboards, banjo), Tripp Howell (drums), and Eric Steedly (lead guitar). Formed in 2012, LANco was born of a chance meeting between Howell and Nashville native Lancaster – each performing in bands at the same festival. Now looking forward to the release of their upcoming full-length debut album – also produced by Joyce – LANco is among the first acts signed to Sony Music Nashville since the arrival of new Chairman & CEO Randy Goodman. Assigned to the label group’s Arista Nashville imprint (home to Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, and more), the band was an immediate win with Goodman, who offered them a deal on the spot the first time he heard them live. Indeed, the band’s live performance energy is becoming one of their undeniable calling cards – and a big part of that is being able to engage the audience. They toured with Ones To Watch alumni Brothers Osborne in Fall 2016.
October 14, 2016 Considering the fact that fellow Ones To Watch band, LANco, is performing as the tour opener, we had young band sit down to ask Brothers Osborne for advice on stage set up, what they’re most excited for, and most importantly, the official rules of beer pong.
