BLACKFOOT GYPSIES RELEASE “HANDLE IT” TO GLOBAL RADIO EXCLUSIVELY VIA AIRPLAY DIRECT
Posted on August 27, 2015
Plowboy Records and Nashville’s own Blackfoot Gypsies, are very excited about releasing “Handle It” to the global radio community exclusively via AirPlay Direct!
“This is an incredibly talented young act, with a very diverse set of influences that explodes into a truly original sound when they combine it with their absolutely ‘riveting’ live performances.” -- Lynda Weingartz, CEO – AirPlay Direct
"From the first two measures into their set, I was hooked on Blackfoot Gypsies and I was not even in the same room when they were playing! I literally concluded the conversation I was having and bolted towards the stage which was in a room full of people absolutely losing their minds to this group of seemingly incongruous individuals pumping a tight, cohesive and blistering message of rock and roll. Charisma, swagger and hooks are what make this band. 'Handle It' just puts a smile on your face and makes you wanna' dance. Trust us on this one! -- R. Shannon Pollard, President - Plowboy Records
The band, originally a guitar/drums duo, has grown to a quartet for 'Handle It' and drink from the same deep well as Zeppelin, The Stones & The Faces: delta blues and the foreboding ghosts of country music's past. They blast out raw, classic rock & roll all dolled up in feathers, sequin jackets, vintage bell-bottoms & cowboy boots. And their wild shows have landed them on stage with the Alabama Shakes, White Fang and more.
Founding members Matthew Paige, who “makes Keith Richards’ riffs sound clean by comparison” (Creative Loafing) and drummer Zack Murphy have rounded out their sound with bassist Dylan Whitlow and Ollie Dogg on harmonica for this album. The 10 tracks showcase their “bombast of reckless experimentation” (The Downcast) with American music; “Under My Skin” bursts with bluesy psychedelia and “Spent All My Money” echoes 'Desire'-era Dylan with finger-picked guitars and violin.
