A motley collection of reformed band geeks, San Lorenzo has built a following in their Boston hometown fitting onto tiny stages and collaborating with New England folk legends like The Novel Ideas, Jake Armerding, and Adam Ezra looking to put a twist on the traditional. Their genre-bending debut EP Noble Dust is equal parts americana and King Crimson, rounded out with ethereal harmonies and a trombone or two.
