Backing vocalist, keyboardist and bassist for The Parlotones, Glen Hodgson, and exceptional drummer Jason Oosthuizen (Black Cat Bones & ex Van Coke Kartel) are launching a new Alternative Country music project called 'Lost&Found.'  It started out as a singer/songwriter project for Glen, but it quickly changed gears when Jason joined the set-up.

Glen and Jason are currently in studio recording their full length debut album in Bloubergstrand with producers Fred den Hartog from Die Heuwels Fantasties and Dane Taylor. The album is due for release early February 2016, but the guys couldn’t wait to launch this passion project with their first single, Lost and Found.

This catchy single brims with sounds of new beginnings and will have new fans singing along for days on end.  Lost and Found is available as a free download from lostandfoundband.co.za.

The debut album - a guest artist for every song:

'Lost&Found' put together a star studded guest list to make each song unforgettable. Collaborating artists on the debut album include:  Jedd Kossew (Francois van Coke & Van Coke Kartel) on Lost and Found, Theo Crous on New Song and Chris van der Walt (The Black Cat Bones) on Faceless Man. Lee Lips from Hog Hoggidy Hog, Johnny de Ridder (Fokofpolisiekar), Hunter Kennedy (Die Heuwels Fantasties & Fokofpolisiekar), Pierre Greeff (Die Heuwels Fantasties) and Fred den Hartog (Die Heuwels Fantasties & Thieve) are also joining, with more guest artists to be confirmed.
