Lonesome Doves are an American indie-rock duo based in Dallas, TX. Scarlett & Sean's passion to perform their original tunes has placed them on street corners & stages all over. In March 2014, they self-produced & released their debut album, Handmade. Releasing Handmade led to their first regional tour across Texas, New Mexico, & Colorado. In February 2015, the band tracked to tape their second full-length album, The Present. Beatles-era recording techniques were used in a top studio with additional musicians.
The Present led to another regional tour across Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, & Colorado. The duo decided to move to Colorado shortly thereafter. The band felt the strangeness of their new home gave themselves permission to explore new ground sonically. With this new creative freedom, and new electric instruments (Scarlett ordered a custom Ukutele from luthier Brian Fanner in South Africa), they added pop-rock drumming over darker lyrical themes. By the end of that year, their songs and stage performance had evolved into a fierce & fun musical animal.
In October 2016, fate brought the band back to their home in Dallas and in July of 2018 they self-financed a week long trip to record their third full-length album, The Dream, at Frogville Studios in Santa Fe, NM.
Their new album, The Dream, was released worldwide on Friday, December 13, 2019.
Lonesome Doves are vegan and parents to two wonderful kids.
