Muddy Ruckus
Muddy Ruckus
Muddy Ruckus is an alternative rock duo of “darkly inventive americana” according to the New York Music Daily. Guitarist Ryan Flaherty and drummer Erika Stahl of Portland, Maine play a grungy style of railroad indie punk blues. This stripped-down power-duo blends rootsy guitar and edgy percussion on a suitcase drum kit, and is known for a full rock band sound.

Muddy Ruckus recently released their new single Brimstone on Jan 25th, 2019. The song was recorded in their home studio in Maine. It begins with a haunting whistle to hook you in, followed by a jangly guitar and profound lyrics like “and I believe i’ll forget all about you, it’s the best thing I can do - for my anger it won’t bring me nothing but those foolish brimstone blues”. Transitioning between alternative rock and folk fusion, the duo keeps a foot in each door by featuring several of their influences in just one song.

"The band is reigning in the ruckus and revealing a bit of their softness with their new single Brimstone, featuring bassist Mark Abraham from Enter The Haggis. Haunting whistles and warm, soulful harmonies lure you in — all the while building up into a powerful, rootsy, instant rock classic you’ll want to play again and again. Listen and hear their unique blend of seasoning, spices, and textures from a road well traveled - helping you to ease your mind and go wherever the music takes you." - Rad Plaid

Muddy Ruckus and The Z-Boys of Providence, RI are releasing a 7" vinyl in March, 2019. The songs were recorded at the amazing Rocktorium Records in W Kingston, RI. The split-vinyl will drop with 4 shows in some of the best venues across New England, including One Longfellow Square in Portland, ME and Columbus Theatre in Providence, RI.
