Modern Country Music

Lincoln Don’t Lie

Based out of the suburbs of Chicago, Lincoln Don’t Lie performs today’s top 40 modern country music and adds their own unique spin by creating “country-fied” versions of pop and alternative tunes.


Lincoln Don’t Lie reminds you of everything that is great about country music. Fronted by the vocal talents of lead singer Tarah Leigh Tesmer (vocals/guitar), the band celebrates country music as well as popular alternative and indie hits. Based out of the suburbs of Chicago, the five-piece performs today’s top 40 modern country music and adds their own unique spin to countrify the rest. The name Lincoln Don’t Lie highlights the band’s origin in Illinois, its pride in the history of the Midwest, and the group’s overall welcoming demeanor. Like Abe, the band is honest in its focus and uses this to deliver engaging performances that stay sharp and genuine to country music.

Formed in February 2012, Lincoln Don’t Lie joins the talents of Mike Echlin (vocals, keys, guitar), Eric Dobson (drums, vocals), Chris Walke (lead guitar, pedal/lap steel), and Jeff Thompson (bass, vocals). Together, these musicians provide a foundation for Tarah to work her magic and provide audiences with more than just a cover song but an interpretation and performance like no other.

We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you soon!
