"From the first rolling guitar notes, carrying sadness and defiance like dust, this
sweeps me up: I want to know everything about where that feeling came from, and where
it's going." Greil Marcus - Pitchfork
"Genius twenty-first century musicians that are reinventing American heritage music
for this century. And it sounds even better this century."T Bone Burnett
“Absolutely brilliant” Anthony Wall – BBC 6
“Some of the best songwriting I have heard in years”.
Ryan Bingham - No Depression
The Americans perform original rock & roll with deep roots in traditional American
music. They have performed on the Late Show with David Letterman, twice joined Grammy
and Oscar winner Ryan Bingham on national tours, and played the first dance at Reese
Witherspoon’s wedding. They have backed up Nick Cave, Tim Robbins, and Lucinda Williams.
The Americans appear throughout American Epic, a four hour primetime PBS / BBC special
produced by Jack White, Robert Redford, and T Bone Burnett, featuring Nas, Elton
John, Alabama Shakes, and Willie Nelson.
The Americans recorded an original song for Hal Willner’s Son of Rogue's Gallery
(ANTI- Records), an album of sea shanties and pirate songs featuring Tom Waits, Keith
Richards, and Iggy Pop, executive produced by Johnny Depp. Reviewing the album in
Believer magazine, critic Greil Marcus wrote, “The Americans [are] led by Patrick
Ferris, whose deep voice doesn't sound like Richard Manuel's but feels like it.”
The Americans’ music is featured in the Michael Mann produced film Texas Killing
Fields, starring Sam Worthington and Chloë Grace Moretz. The soundtrack includes
two original songs, “Kiss Your Eyes” and “When The Blaze Is Blue.”
