Strung Like a Horse is known for their signature brand of Americana, distilled from old-school storytelling, roots instrumentations, and alt-rock edge. Mississippi-bred, Chattanooga-based frontman Clayton Maselle brings the influences of John Hartford, Split Lip Rayfield, Danny Barnes, The Band, Violent Femmes, and Old Crow Medicine Show to his singular songs. Their authenticity, high energy, and great fondness for a good time have made the band’s live shows a cult favorite. Strung’s first studio album, WHOA!, was produced by multiple Grammy-winner Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, John Prine, Calexico/Iron & Wine, Margo Price, Lucero) at the legendary Sound Emporium in Nashville, and was released on Transoceanic Records.
WHOA! debuted at #2 on the Billboard Bluegrass albums chart, #2 on the Amazon Alt-Country/Americana chart, #1 on Amazon New Releases, #4 on the Alt-Country Specialty chart, #7 on Bluegrass Today’s Grassicana chart, #6 on the Folk chart, #4 on Alternative Folk chart, #1 on Alternate Root’s Weekly Top Ten, and No Depression’s Best of the Month. The album made No Depression’s “Best Roots Music Albums of 2020,” The Alternate Root’s “Top 100 Albums for 2020,” and Next’s “Notable Songs in 2020” year-end lists, and is currently on the Top 25 at Americana Radio. The album has earned praise from American Songwriter, No Depression, The Bluegrass Situation, The Alternate Root, Apple Music, Glide Magazine, Gimme Country, Lightning 100, NPR, WUTC, WMOT, and many more.
The popular touring act was noted by No Depression’s Amos Perrine as among the “Best New Music” and a “Don’t Miss” at AmericanaFest week in Nashville, and their official showcase wowed London at AmericanaFestUK 2020. Strung Like a Horse (pre-pandemic) tours year-round, performing up to 100 shows a year, including Bonnaroo (labeled "Best Band Name"), Moon River Music Festival, Suwanee Roots, Wildwood Revival, Rhythm & Blooms, Summer Camp, HartfordFest, LibertyFest, and has recently appeared on Jam in the Van. On the road, they have supported or performed with Old Crow Medicine Show, Shooter Jennings, Nicki Bluhm, Del McCoury, Charlie Daniels, Travis Tritt, Sam Bush, and Hot Buttered Rum. Their notable name, Strung Like a Horse, was chosen during their early days as a string band, who were very reliant on bows, strung with horsehair. Given their raucous, full-tilt shows, they would go through a lot of horsehair and often had to re-string their bows before or after performances.
Band current lineup includes: Clayton Maselle (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, mandolin), Eric “Crispy” Crisp (drums, bells, percussion), Tyler Martelli (lead guitars, piano, organ, keyboard, mandolin), Dan Pinson (upright double bass, electric bass, lap steel guitar), and (frequent guest) Paddy King (fiddle, cello).
“One of the most interesting folk-rock groups right now.”
“WHOA! captures the band’s live energy, stellar musicianship, and eclectic blend of influences.”
“Best Roots Music Albums of 2020”
“A formidable album, with tracks that are rock solid…energetic until the last noted has been played. What a superbly crafted record! What then can the music be compared to? I immediately jump to the premier league of Americana, and then I say Wilco.”
--Michael Struis, Alt-Country Forum
THE AIN'T SISTERS
The Ain't Sisters have transcended their origins as outlaw street performers to grace the stages of the Southeast and beyond with their unique brand of funk-infused, blues-driven Indie Rock. Commanding attention with every performance, this fresh outfit from Atlanta, Georgia has risen to the top of the local music scene, selling out Decatur’s historic Eddie’s Attic, rattling the walls of Terminal West, and establishing themselves as regulars on the local festival circuit (Hemlockfest, Decatur Arts Festival). A powerhouse of songwriting and electric live performances, other artists have taken notice. The Ain'ts are honored to have shared the stage with notable regional and national touring acts including Donna The Buffalo, Ralph Roddenbery, Brad Parsons and Starbird, Strung Like a Horse, and Tank and the Bangas.
“They have stirred up this old songwriter something fierce!”
- Ralph Roddenbery
