Pacific Standard

Who We Are

Disciples of the groups like The Band, Eagles, and Grateful Dead, Pacific Standard draws musical inspiration from the Laurel Canyon and Americana traditions of strong songwriting, top musicianship, and colorful vocal harmonies. Formed in San Francisco in 2015, Pacific Standard features some of the SF Bay Area's most talented musical performers.
Featuring (above L-R) Ian Ratzer on Keyboards, Chris Akin on bass, Greg Lamboy on Guitar and Lead Vocals, Ben Leinbach on Drums, and David Phillips on Pedal Steel, Pacific Standard fuses Americana, Alt-Country, and Folk Rock into a seamless blend of original and accessible music that is appreciated by a wide and diverse audience. 
They perform regularly around Northern California and are expecting the release of their new album, “The Honeyed and the Bittersweet” in 2018.  Whether performing their catchy, award winning original compositions or inspired versions of familiar favorites, their stellar musical performances blend with sweet vocal harmonies and exude the joy they share in playing music together.
