Album Notes

If you haven't heard the name yet, it'll only be in due time. The Kris Lager Band is an original, high energy, midwestern, rootsrock, blues-based band that is solely dedicated to playing passionate, heartfelt music. If that sounds a little confusing to you it's because KLB creates a musical landscape that crosses all genres and can fall wherever, whenever. From Blues, to Rock, to Country, to Jam, to Zydeco, to Gospel... always sounding familiar, yet always sounding original.

Born and raised in the heart of the Midwest, and nestled inside one of the country's best unknown thriving music scenes. Kris Lager cut his teeth watching and sometimes playing alongside blues legends on the road or just passing through Lincoln, Nebraska. In fact Kris' first time ever on stage was with multiple WC Handy award winner, Magic Slim when he was only 16 years old.

Kris first picked up the guitar at age 14, and then spent the majority of his teenage years deciphering his dad's classic records, and honing his chops with every blues album he could get his hands on. After playing in a few local bands, and bars around town Kris started his own group at the age of 17. For the last five years they've played hundreds of shows, logged thousands of miles, and earned a reputation as one of the country's best-kept secrets.

With KLB there's no bloodlines, no hand-me-downs, no freebees, everything that's come through the hands of these young troubadours has been hard earned, and self-brought. In a music industry where 'who ya know' is often more important than 'what ya know', you can sure hear the difference in blue collar, rough and tumble, do it yourself musicians.

A huge and integral part to the KLB sound is no doubt long time Keyboardist Jeremiah Weir, who adds a sonic diversity and depth to the band. Also born and raised in Nebraska 'Miah' is a self-taught musician who was influenced greatly by the sounds of Booker T. & The MG's, The Meters, and Dr. John just to name a few. Having played together for many years now Miah and Kris have attained a musical partnership rarely seen by most musicians, and the interplay between them is undeniable.

Last year KLB released one of the top regionally selling, independent albums, and received extensive airplay on radio stations across the Midwest. KLB was named 'Best Unsigned Rock Band in the Midwest' by the Midwest Entertainment Music Assoc in June 2004, and their album was named 'Texas Blues Album of the Year' by Bandit Blues Radio.com based out of Tennessee.

They have also shared the stage with some of the industries' most acclaimed artists such as Jonny Lang, Indigenous, Bo Diddley, Los Lonely Boys, Doyle Bramhall, Robben Ford, Foghat, Steppenwolf, Savoy Brown, Lonnie Brooks, Joe Bonamassa, Double Trouble, Chris Duarte, Derek Trucks, Tab Benoit, James Solberg, Eric Sardinas, Jimmy Thackery, The Davey Brothers, Magic Slim & The Teardrops, Hadden Sayers Band, Melvin Taylor, Little Milton, Styx, Baby Jason & the Spankers, and more.

The only question now is, how long can the' Best Unsigned Band in the Midwest' go without being signed or recognized as just that?
