Q&A with the deli's Artist of the Month: Bryan Laurier & the Lost Acres

Q&A with the deli's Artist of the Month: Bryan Laurier & the Lost Acres

 Out of the woods, past a street that inspired the band's name, in a barn was where Bryan Laurier & the Lost Acres recorded their first, Kickstarter funded, full length "Bought & Sold." An old barn in the Maine countryside is quite the fitting landscape for the band's folk, blues, and rock influences with a group of at least 7 (sometimes 8) talented musicians.

The Deli: How did the band start? We all met in college… Colin had been active with his punk band Wolfie Burns when we were roommates and I got to know the rest of his band (Brendan, Spencer, and Ryan) going to bars and hanging out. I'd been writing with Jeremy here and there, but mainly sharing demos while we were developing as writers. Eventually, at the end of college, I'd written a bunch of demos and shared them sporadically with a few of the guys. Brendan mentioned he'd like to play on the songs and I ended up using their entire band since they had all seemed interested and had previous playing chemistry from Wolfie Burns. Jeremy was up for it and joined us up in Maine. Jonathan Mess, who plays harmonica on the record, was my old high school art teacher and I asked him drop in while we tracked a bit at the barn.
