Americana Gothic

by The Mayflies

What happens if Kurt Weill and Kris Kristofferson sit in with the Band in a dive bar in the middle of Iowa? Evocative lyrics sung in a voice as rich as the black Iowa soil, all couched in lush, rolling instrumentation.

Album Notes
The Mayflies are a hard rockin' quintet that has been playing clubs all over the Midwest and West since 2000. The Mayflies were invited to attend the prestigious 2001 South By Southwest festival, in Austin as the sole musical guests from Iowa and in the short time since have performed with such celebrated acts as Asleep At The Wheel, Greg Brown, Deke Dickerson & The Ecco-Fonics, Robbie Fulks, Alejandro Escovedo, Grand Champeen, Mike Ireland & Holler, Lonesome Bob, Bo Ramsey, Jim Roll, Slobberbone, and Dale Watson & His Lonestars. Embodying all of the adrenalin of a garage rock band with an appreciable love for the history of American music... from bluegrass and gospel, to rural country, to the soulful urban bliss of punk and jazz, The Mayflies have become known for their spirited, vibrant, and intimate performances, as well as for their unique chemistry. Always energetic and often startling, The Mayflies are genuine Americana.
