Earley described American Goldwing as about letting the groups loves and early influences out for public display, expressing the album as a culmination of “the sounds we grew up with, the hard guitar rock and country picking of our younger years mixes with glimmers of our usual space-aging technology and pawn shop Casio apomb. Heavy guitar riffs and blasting drum fills live side-by-side with plucking banjos, wailing harmonicas and muddy slide guitars that make you want to shotgun a beer in the shower while listening to the Stones or Joe Walsh”.
Forming in 2000, genre-straddling has always been a specialty of BLITZEN TRAPPER, who have masterfully blended indie, folk-rock with alt-Country, but at their heart they have a classic Rock and Roll sound that is drenched in warming harmonies.
Their live show has always garnered alluring reviews and promised unwavering, passionate energy onstage..
“Sent their fans into a fit of delirium, as those in attendance begged and pleaded for more.” – Henry Hauser beatsperminute.com
“In an imaginary musical marriage, Led Zeppelin’s edge and Lynyrd Skynyrd’s folksy twangs had a baby. Taken a step further, that baby procreated with Tom Petty’s voice. BLITZEN TRAPPER would be the Led-Skynyrd grandchild’s name.” -MXDWN.COM
“EARLEY’s solo highlighted the folk roots of the band’s music and resembled the soulful crooning of BOB DYLAN… BLITZEN TRAPPER displays a multi-faceted distinctiveness that translates into a truly superb live music experience…with each member of the band wielding different instruments throughout the entire set.”heyreverb.com
