Lombardy is a Nashville based Rock N Roll band formed in late 2020. The group consists of Mike Scott (Vocals/Lead Guitar), Jonathan Plevyak (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar), Nick Stafford (Bass), & Ryan Rasmussen (Drums). The idea to form the band started during an evening out celebrating Ryan’s birthday over pizza and listening to Rage Against The Machine. All the boys had their own solo careers/projects, but thought it would be rewarding and fun to start a collective project bringing together a new sound in Rock music. The boys went home and wrote their first song “Sally” within one hour. A magic filled the room immediately. The boys went on to write 8 original songs, and went to Destin, FL to record their debut album all within 2 weeks…Lombardy was born!
The band’s sound is drawn from all different eras of Rock N Roll, including Classic Rock, Outlaw Country, Metal, Blues, and even Psychedelic. Lombardy has recorded all of their records live in the same room, all in one take, giving the records an old school feel with intense energy, yet sprinkled with modern production influences. This has created a sound that feels familiar & eclectic, yet entirely modern, refreshing, and unique on its own.
Lombardy's first year on the scene has been a wild one... After releasing a string of singles throughout the first half of 2021, the band released their self-titled debut album "Lombardy" on August 13th, 2021. The band also recorded their second album in early 2021 in Muscle Shoals, AL, which is set to be released at a date TBA. Along with a jam-packed live show schedule, the boys also made it to the final 4 out of 350+ artists for the coveted Lightning 100 Music City Mayhem Competition in Nashville, TN, after only being a band for a mere 4 months. Lombardy hopes to see you at a show in the near future, and in the meantime, will keep releasing a steady stream of new music... #LOMBARDY2021
