LANSDOWNE has been building their name on the road for over 15 years. With two Billboard charting radio singles, over 100 million streams, music appearing in several commercials and TV programs, and tours through the Middle East to entertain the troops, this Beantown Modern Rock act shows no signs of slowing down.

LANSDOWNE recently signed with German heavyweight record label AFM Records for the release of their latest compilation Medicine. The album drops on February 3, 2023 and contains new and classic material. I had the chance to speak with frontman Jon Ricci prior to the album’s release.

Highlights include:

-Discussion of latest album Medicine
-Surprising fandom in European countries
-Stories behind the singles
-Recruiting model Sarah Maillet for “Halo” video
-Why music videos are important to songs
-Their homebase at Red 13 Studios
-Signing with AFM Records
-How Ricci briefly quitting the band turned things around
-How the band formed and took their moniker
-2023 touring plans
-Playing for the troops in the Middle East
-And much, much more
