Bringin' A Bit Of Nebraska

Armed with only a guitar, a few cowboy cut shirts, and a handful of road-worthy songs, Justin Lamoureux will pour his heart out for audiences throughout the south and central parts of America.

Omaha, NE based singer-songwriter Justin Lamoureux, who pretty much makes up Midwest Dilemma, has been keeping busy on the road with his country influenced indie-rock sound. Midwest Dilemma will make an appearance in Houston, TX, on Sunday, May 29th, 2005. This all ages show will be held at the Super Happy Fun Land, located on 2610 Ashland Street. The evening will begin at 8pm with local artist Shaun, followed by Minneapolis, MN songwriter Brad Hoshaw. Midwest Dilemma will finish off the night. There will be a $6 cover charge at the door.

Born and raised in the Heartland, Justin Lamoureux has much to tell about his life and experiences growing up in the Midwest. At an early age Justin's father, a 30-year veteran railroader and singer/songwriter, helped influence his journey and life as a musician. Leaving his tired Sioux City, IA hometown for a new beginning and flourishing music scene – he headed to Omaha which was a needed change of pace. Not until after his early twenties did Lamoureux find his own voice and simplistic approach to songwriting. Many of his songs originated from inspiration found in the weather, relationships, geography, and situations that sometimes hit close to home. But don't confuse the word simplistic with boring. Justin puts it all on the line with his intense stage presence and explosive style, revealing urgency for honest emotion.

In mid-2002 Midwest Dilemma was introduced by Lamoureux as a concept that would take shape through writing, recording, and touring. Midwest Dilemma has logged thousands of miles throughout the country sharing the stage with artists such as Jesse Malin, Kathleen Edwards, Kid Dakota and country legend, Malcolm Holcombe.

"A chaotic wave of simplicity and emotion at its finest... down to earth songs that take you to other places." - Matt Reed, Long Island, New York
