The Stoned Lonesome.jpg


The Stoned Lonesome is an American music group based out of Chicago, Illinois that focuses primarily on roots country music. David "Lee" Waterman formed the group in July of 2015. He recruited a plethora of neighborhood musicians to play the music he fell in love with, while living in Southern Illinois.

David Lee first delved into the genre of roots country in 2003 when he lived in Carbondale, Illinois. The local music scene in Carbondale was vibrantly different, compared to that of Dave’s hometown Chicago. Here he was turned on to artists such as Hank Williams, Townes Van Zandt, Waylon Jennings, George Jones, and Roger Miller to name a few.

The Stoned Lonesome have a growing catalog of original tunes, but live in concert you will be sure to hear them cover the classics. Come on out and enjoy some of the finest Honky Tonk music Illinois has to offer!
