Biography

Weinland is an American folk-rock five-piece from Portland, OR in 2006. Based around Adam Shearer (born John Adam Weinland Shearer), the other early members were Aaron Pomerantz (dobro/mandolin) and Rory Brown (bass). For the first album, in 2006, Ian Lyles played drums and banjo. Then Paul Christensen (keyboards) joined. Later albums include La Lamentor (2008) and Breaks In The Sun (2009).

The band has been highly praised for strong songwriting and heartbreaking stories. And with reviews such as this one from Spoilt Victorian Child (UK) “full of stunningly beautiful moments that can make your heart melt or shatter into a million tiny pieces, often within the same softly sung line”, their album La Lamentor was packed full of Neil Young-influenced alt. country fit for rainy nights and front-porch smoking sessions.
