Young Lords

Artist bio

An electric band of fashion and music outlaws, Young Lords are more Fun House than Sweetheart of the Rodeo and more Beggar's Banquet than Honky Tonk Heroes. Lead singer Blair Van Nort and rhythm guitarist/brother Reed Van Nort met drummer Cory Lasser and new lead guitarist Adam Gerard in classes at the New School University, and soon thereafter met bassist Maxwell Silver during a night on the town. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Seattle, Washington and NYC, the five-piece found an intersection of sonic styles that incorporated their diverse musical histories.
