The Lost Wages

Front members/writers include brother/sister duo Houston and Cyrena Wages of Memphis, now located in Nashville. Previously known as Friends of Lola and Wages.

Deemed "70's Country Rock Revivalists by Pandora Radio..." 


The Lost Wages is a sibling led Country band from Memphis, TN. Although Memphis music nostalgia runs deep and for good reason, the "soul" of Memphis does not limit itself to its past time impression; rather it’s an abiding energy, a "something in the water.” The Wages siblings - Houston and Cyrena  - were born out of the nature that makes Memphis, Memphis. 

Fusing honky tonk edge with wide-open, anthemic melodies and a warmth reminiscent of the 70's Laurel Canyon scene (think Eagles meets Dwight Yoakam), TLW bring a fresh take on a nostalgic sound. Now based in East Nashville, two children of a small town judge elicit an unapologetic thumbprint.

Previously working under a different name, they were the only country band among the Top 3 for the Nashville Scene's "Best Local Band," and they landed a major motion picture placement in 2015's "A Walk in the Woods", starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte. 

TLW hosts a monthly residency, "Country Club," at Nashville's Basement East, showcasing up and coming local artists. A "Country Club where you don't have to wear a tie and ordering a 40 is encouraged." Boasting a feel of "no membership fees", Country Club's aim is to nurture Nashville's unique community of artists by providing the laid back, good vibe atmosphere that gave Music City its second lease on being an entertainment hub. 

After a stint of writing and recording various projects in town, they are currently completing their debut record.
