The Black Lemons are a punk pop rock quartet from Nashville, TN.
After an early version of the band broke up, Stephen Simon (keyboards, vocals),
and Jay Lawrence (guitar, background vocals), spent 2013 recording their debut album,
Thundershirts for Everyone, which they released in January 2014. An eclectic mix of
punk, pop, and even a bit of soul. They added Brandon Barrington on bass and Cliff Gray
on drums, and the Lemons started playing clubs.
The Black Lemons have been around. Members have opened shows for everyone from Cheap Trick to Siouxsie Sioux.
This diversity comes through on their album . If you can’t imagine how a McCartneyesque pop
tune fits well along side a Pixie’s style punk song, listen to Thundershirts, and it will
all make sense to you.
The Lemons are punk pop music with a lot of variety, a lot of catchy tunes, and a lot of punch.
