Best known over the past decade as leader of legendary Canadian band "The Kingpins", Lorraine has made a bold move with this incomparable 5-piece. An exceptional voice and outstanding musicians explore new musical horizons. Lo and the Magnetics deliver it to you in the form of their debut release on “Top 5 Records” entitled "A Part"

The Canadian release (Nov. 16th, 2004) was immediately followed by a major successful 5-week European tour (see calendar) to support its release on that territory on German label “Grover Records”

There is no doubt this album will surpass your expectations!

Allow yourself to be swept away by powerful lyrics and stirring melodies in the form of  Lo and the Magnetics!
