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.
The musical journey of the Blackfoot Gypsies continues to evolve, as their footprint on new towns across the country continues to take shape. The Blackfoot Gypsies have a strong presence in their hometown of Nashville, TN, having played in the the top venues Nashville has to offer.
The music crosses all boundaries creating fans of all ages and backgrounds. The Blackfoot Gypsies create timeless American music that feeds the American soul.

"The Blackfoot Gypsies have created a place that dreamers, night flyers, and adventure seekers can gather and embrace the triumphant harmony of spirit and music – made by humans, for humans.
With 4 years, 4 releases, and countless miles under their belt as a 2 piece band, Zack Murphy and Matthew Paige have called on fellow brethren Dylan Whitlow (bass) and Ollie Dogg (harmonica) to join forces and help expand their already wide spectrum of American music. The upcoming release of the band’s second full length LP, Handle It, serves as the debut of The Blackfoot Gypsies as a full-force four piece band.
Infusing the honest roots of blues and the deep secrets of real country music, The Blackfoot Gypsies create a rock ‘n’ roll pace and angst that keep your heart alive, all while pounding to a true Nashville beat. The swirling vortex of their records and live show welcome you into a world where linking arms with friends and strangers keeps your head far above the clouds. In a world where all too often “music” is made simply to keep the masses happy, the Gypsies make music you can believe in, not just fall for."
