Driftwood Soldier and Muddy Ruckus

Driftwood Soldier

“Finding an identity in the storytelling aspect of traditional folk, Driftwood Solider infuse everything from the blues to the punk music of their adolescence, expressed through Lyman-Schmidt’s mandolin and Szafranski’s melodic bass stylings and junk percussion—a suitcase, a license plate snare, and “the Jangler,” a bottle cap tambourine contraption. Their instrumentation combined with Lyman-Schmidt’s Nick Cave-esque jarring baritone growls produce a uniquely rootsy sound.”

- Mother Church Pew

Muddy Ruckus

Muddy Ruckus is a duo of darkly inventive americana rock. Guitarist Ryan Flaherty and percussionist Erika Stahl, of Portland, Maine, play a grungy style of railroad indie punk blues and brimstone folk. The band blends rootsy guitar and edgy percussion on a suitcase drum kit, and is known for a full rock band sound, despite their duo status. They season their music with 'in-your-face' lyrics salted by the eastern old ports and mud of the Mississippi River where Flaherty grew up.

The New York Music Daily calls Muddy Ruckus “Darkly Inventive Americana.” Muddy Ruckus was awarded “Best in State of Maine 2016” by the New England Music Awards, and has been recently nominated for “2017 Roots Act Of The Year” by NEMA. Their second album, Pretty Bones, was awarded 2106 “Album of the Year" by Red Line Roots.
