Combining a rich influence of sonic stylings and serving up theirstories on a foundation of infectious grooves and raucous melodies,The Mantic Muddlers have a soundscape that pays tribute to the richhistory of Roots music, whilst pushing forward into new territory.Songs that walk a tightrope between Fiction & Reality are put forth onsuch instruments as the searing Violin, thunderous Double Bass andResonator Guitar, and then enriched with a coating of heartfelt vocalharmonies… For lack of a legitimate genre, you’ll be hearing Roots,Rattle & Roll!
With their latest release, Tall Tales & The Gospel Truth having beenrecorded entirely live in an abandoned industrial kitchen, the triocomes to life with sheer soul and shine a light on the sanctity ofmusic. When appearances at such iconic festivals as Weyfest, Boomtownand Victorious are combined with numerous support slots in the vibrantcities of Bristol, Brighton and London, it becomes clear that theunrelenting delivery of a Muddlers live show is purely for the stage,with songs born to be sung, and stories longing to be shared.
