Biography

St. Louis, Missouri (2005 – present)

Strawfoot is a six piece alternative country/Gothic Americana band from St. Louis, Missouri. The name is taken from the Civil War era march cadence of the same name. Their music infuses a variety of influences ranging from bluegrass, southern gospel and the blues, to eastern European folk and alternative rock. Steeped in the rich, dark history of America and beyond Strawfoot play haunting cautionary tales of outlaw scarecrows, wayward preachers, falling pianos and the devil to create the dark sounds of “Candy-Coated Salvation and Eternal Damnation”.

Formed in the summer of 2005 and fronted by the Reverend Marcus, a distant relative of famous author Mark Twain, Strawfoot performs with violin, banjo, harmonica, upright bass, guitar, mandolin, percussion and the occasional accordion. Their high-energy shows regularly include burlesque dancers and a tongue-in-cheek absolution of the audience’s sins.

A part of the burgeoning Gothic Americana scene gaining popularity both in the US and abroad, Strawfoot has performed with Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers, The Ditty Bops, Curtis Eller, The Meat Purveyors, Reverend Glasseye, Humanwine, Of Montreal, Bobby Bare, Jr., Jason Ringenberg, the Black Diamond Heavies, the Monads, The Redwalls, Tim Barry, The Hackensaw Boys and William Elliott Whitmore among others.

    I am amazed that they remain pretty much obscure.

    It's like a Guns And Roses tour bus collided with Bill Monroes bus and both landed in an ole southern tent revival. Gotta love it.
