Muddy Ruckus is Ryan Flaherty and Erika Stahl. The Portland based acoustic power duo plays an original blend of americana, gypsy stomp and epic rock. Flaherty, originally from Rock Island, IL, met Stahl in 2013 in Portland Maine. They played on porches, street corners and campfires and became Muddy Ruckus. An Explosive clash of gypsy inspired guitar, edgy percussion, obscure lyrics and growling vocal harmonies follow suit. Muddy Ruckus pulls inspiration from the music they love – old-timey folk music, dirty blues, circa 1940 hot swing and American rock – dressing it with Dylan-esque lyrics that poke fun at society and examine the state of the world.
Muddy Ruckus recently released their new self-titled album in the Fall of 2014. In a years time the band has toured both regionally and nationally, was nominated for the New England Music Awards “Best in State of Maine”, and was included in Daytrotter’s “Best Songs Of 2014” list. You can also find music from Muddy Ruckus on Daytrotter.com and Pandora.com.
