|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 and roll is alive. The Blackfoot Gypsies are proof.
