“A juggernaut of vicious guitar riffs and pounding rhythms.” – Examiner.com

“Fine music packaged in retro-sexy feathers, hair, hats, animal skins, beads, fringe. … Blackfoot Gypsies construct songs that make you want to both ponder their relatable lyrics and shake your ass until your cheeks are numb.” – No Country for New Nashville

“Meaty, swaggering and devoid of irony.” – Nashville Scene

“Making Keith Richards’ riffs sound clean by comparison.” – Creative Loafing

“Future rock & roll icons.” – Soundstamp

“May cause rowdiness and an urge to drink Jack & waters until your lights go out.” – The Angry Grad

“A high haired mix of sixties garage band sounds and caustic ’70s rocker blues through a psychedelic filter.” – Star News Online

“The bombast of reckless experimentation with unmarked pharmacy bottles from grandma’s medicine cabinet, tempered with a sturdy appreciation for the bluesier side of late, late sixties rock ’n’ roll.” – The Downcast

“Those outlaw gypsies horsewhipped us all the way to the Deep South–harmonicas blazing. War paint melts when your face gets rocked up. By the end of the show, something always gets busted or broken. Blood and tufts of fur.” – No Country for New Nashville

Bio

Nashville’s Blackfoot Gypsies are a rock ’n’ roll band—straight up, no modifiers necessary. With four years, four releases, and countless miles under their belt as a two-piece guitar & drums powerhouse, Zack Murphy and Matthew Paige have recently added fellow brethren Dylan Whitlow (bass) and Ollie Dogg (harmonica), bolstering their passionate, careening, undeniably American sound. Seeing the band live is like watching someone cling to a firehose at full blast or dig their heels in atop a thrashing mechanical bull… holding on for dear life, slowly guiding and reacting to forces at the brink of their control, somehow coming up aces in the end.

Blackfoot Gypsies have shared bills with everyone from the Alabama Shakes and Trampled by Turtles to Futurebirds, The Ettes and The Carolina Chocolate Drops. Their second full-length LP, Handle It (coming fall 2014), is the band’s debut as a full-throttle four piece. Drawing inspiration from the downhome roots of the Delta blues and the foreboding ghosts of country music’s past, Murphy, Paige & Co. go to the same well as Zeppelin, the Stones & The Faces, coming up with bucketful of angsty rock ‘n’ roll that’ll jolt your flatlined heart back into perfect rhythm.

Rock is dead? The Blackfoot Gypsies call bullshit. They’re living proof it’s alive and well.
