The Lawsuits

The Lawsuits formed after Brian Dale Allen Strouse met Vanessa Winters & Brendan Cunningham, both of whom were attending Temple University. Shortly after the three started together, drummer Josh Friedman joined and the four released an acoustic EP, 'Numbers', in 2012. Guitarist Joe Bisirri joined during the making of the group's first full length, 'Cool Cool Cool', which was produced by Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man). The album's first single, 'Onion', was chosen as #22 of Daytrotter's 300 Best Songs of 2013. The album was received well critically and premiered with the likes of Rolling Stone, Spin, and Paste Magazine.  Their new LP, "Moon Son", was released on Randm Records on May 13, 2016.

"Eleven songs of unadulterated rock that pushes boundaries of genre definition while remaining experimental and exciting: on a plateau just below that of the great My Morning Jacket." - Glide Magazine

"The Lawsuits are back, this time with a track called “Romeo” from their new sophomore full-length Moon Son. It feels like a classic Americana song, telling the tales of characters observed when out in dusty towns and dark roadside bars.That cello adds a subtle depth that carries “Romeo” to its peak alongside a great bass line. Strouse’s Jakob Dylan-meets-Jeff Tweedy vocals are gently supported by Vanessa Winters, while piano and guitar alternate as the driving force." - Julie Miller, The Key

"This isn’t a band that’s about to be designated to one specific genre. Instead, the 11 songs on their sophomore release blend rock, groove, pop and more with soulful vocals and instrument playing that highlight their uniqueness. This band is the real deal." - Elmore Magazine

"Members Brian Dale Allen Strouse, Vanessa Winters, Brendan Cunningham, Josh Friedman and Joe Bisirri are not afraid to experiment. “Sweet Marcelle,” the third of four tracks on the new EP, sends a wash of shivery, spine-tingling chords over listeners from the very first note and then keeps them hooked as the song’s story unfolds.” - Jessica Norton, Paste Magazine

"The Lawsuits stitch together an array of styles and genres on their latest album, the upcoming Cool Cool Cool. To wit, first single "Dreaming #26" gently tumbles along at a folkie' pace (via Rolling Stone), while the freshly unveiled "Long Drive Home" drifts through the fog created by LP producer and mixer Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man) as if it's the theme to a gloomy noir thriller. Singer Vanessa Winters' soulful vocals flesh out the track's deep blue color scheme, which is just briefly punctured by short, sunny, hopeful interludes from Brian Dale Allen Strouse, the Philadelphia foursome's chief songwriter, guitarist, and singer.” - Kyle McGovern, SPIN

"'Dreaming #26′ focuses on an artist dealing with their love of creation, as well as their love for another being,” The Lawsuits’ Brian Dale Allen Strouse tells Rolling Stone. 'There never feels like enough time to satisfy both. It’s a struggle trying to engage and nurture the creativity one feels internally without letting day to day responsibilities slip through the cracks. So, it seems fitting that the song’s music and lyrics were written and recorded simultaneously.'" – Rolling Stone
