Feedback Revival, The Blackfoot Gypsies, Hardin Draw, Long Gone Darlings and Sam Lewis
Feedback Revival is a rock band from Nashville, Tn.
Dan Fenton’s shredded voice is the perfect vehicle for Feedback Revival’s songs about Camaros, women who mess up your mind and rock ’n’ roll — don’t forget rock ’n’ roll. A New York native, Fenton began making noise as part of hard-rock band Education of Monkeys. These days Fenton and his quartet live in Nashville, and their music derives from Led Zeppelin, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and other masters of the massive riff. “I Wanna Be Your Man” isn’t the Beatles tune, but Feedback Revival are smart enough to quote the Lennon-McCartney song before roaring ahead. “Money” follows a similar path — it sounds familiar, but the riffs take on a life of their own: “Take your hands out of my pocket / Before you lose them for good,” they sing. These guys make loud, mean rock ’n’ roll, so you might want to take them at their word.

The Blackfoot Gypsies
Hometown: Nashville, TN
Genres: Rock / Blues / Country
Label: Gypsy Records
Members: Zack Murphy and Matthew Paige
The Blackfoot Gypsies is the bombastic melding of Matthew Paige, singer and guitar player, and Zack Murphy, tenured drummer from Nashville, TN. With the attitude and swagger of vintage country and rock lore from the past, the Blackfoot Gypsies is paving their path as one of America’s next contributors to the legacy of rock and roll! The authentic trans-western vibe has been masterfully crafted in the traditional roots of American music. We can hear the influences of Bob Dylan’s ragged vocals, Robert Johnson’s slide and blues soul, and Willie Nelson’s stories. Tough yet occasionally tender, the Keith Richards-inspired riffs and thunderous rhythms of Led Zeppelin are contrasted by Gram Parson’s angelic sense of country music.
The music crosses all boundaries creating fans of all ages and backgrounds. The Blackfoot Gypsies create timeless American music that feeds the American soul.
