Lonehawk is a standout New York City band. All four members are tried and true, born and raised denizens of the City. Singer/keyboardist Dan Lubell and guitarist Nick Zarin-Ackerman have been friends since grade school. Lubell and bassist Alex Stimmel met in college and discovered their shared interest in all things music. Drummer Phil Cimino, despite being the newest edition to the band, brings a Bonham-like thump and a Moon-ish joviality. Their camaraderie makes for a tight band that's loose enough to enjoy themselves. What bolsters Lonehawk is a love of classic melody and song structure; not "classic" as in classic rock, but as in "timeless;" "classic" as in "recognizably unique." As fans return to a desire for purity of intent rather than parity of image, the boys in Lonehawk oblige. Every sound is carefully placed, every tone crystal clear. They deliver no fancy effects or sonic noodling, just good ol' rock n' roll.
