"Sexy, low-slung and soulful, balancing barroom sneer with near-blistering emotional heat in a way that evokes the best of the brothers Allman and Flying Burrito." New Orleans Gambit Weekly
The most recent Bloodshot release, Sao Paulo, came out last year.
Anything past press-wise, photo-wise or whatever you'd want to check out is here.
For the dates listed below, Deadstring Brothers lead man Kurt Marschke will be performing solo. The live act will showcase Marschke's rarely shown multi-instrumentalism and give an intimate look of DSB songs throughout their four-record catalog, including the most recent Sao Paulo. Utilizing his tools of the trade, the DSB front man brings a wall of sound to the rock and an artisans touch to the ballads in his repertoire. From sparse songwriter fare to a full rock combo fronted by a single soulful singer, the solo show represents the full spectrum.
Earning comparisons to the Stones circa Exile on Main Street, Deadstring Brothers are Detroit incarnate. A little rough and tumble, they're roots rock drawing from Muscle Shoals, Soul, and Blues in one fell swoop. The songs are great for cruising around in your Ford, Chevy, or whatever you're driving these days. They rock, pretty much.
Sao Paulo, garnered a ton of praise and coverage, with Maverick (UK) calling it "Real whiskey soaked rocking country/blues music." And "...heart-wrenching, bulldozing, guitar laden, in-your-face country-rock." The Chicago Reader said the album was filled with "flinty, soulful performances that bring infectious vitality to bluesy rockers and boozy honky-tonk." And the Nashville Scene stated "On their newest, Sao Paulo, specifically "Houston" and "The River Song," singer-guitarist Kurt Marschke spurs the band to an uncanny approximation of the Stones in their raunchy '70s prime, while expanding their sound to encompass space-transmission blues and woozy, heartsick country balladry. Recommended to anyone who's ever worn out a cassette copy of Let It Bleed." Sao Paulo's predecessor, Silver Mountain, was named one of the best Records of 2007 by American Songwriter.
