It was roughly a decade ago that Pert Near Sandstone first gathered around a microphone in a Minneapolis basement to record their debut album, Up And Down The River. A beloved local bluegrass band, they cemented their status as linchpins of the Midwestern scene with a series of albums, In late 2016, they released The Discovery Of Honey, which featured and was co-produced by original founding member Ryan Young of Trampled by Turtles. A variety of festival appearances such as the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival, as well as sharing bills on the road with the likes of Trampled By Turtles, Del McCoury Band, Sam Bush and more. Feeding LeRoy came out of the collaboration of Sonja and Lee's original songs, blending into a unique project, with their songwriting and vocal harmonies as the focus of this band's sound. It's kind of a family affair now, with brother Luke stepping in on the harmonica and long time friend and bassist, Adam Staupe on the upright bass, both adding their vocal harmonies, creating somewhat of a gospel undertone that acts as it's own instrument in the band. Think Gram Parsons and Emmylou meets the Jayhawks ... it’s country music at its core, it's fun, it's original, it's Feeding LeRoy.
