The Americans
The Americans
"The Americans are part of this group, these genius twenty-first century musicians that are reinventing American heritage music for this century. And it sounds even better this century."
- T Bone Burnett

Formed in Los Angeles, The Americans perform original rock & roll with deep roots in traditional American music. The band has performed on the Late Show with David Letterman, twice joined Grammy and Oscar winner Ryan Bingham on national tours, and played the first dance at Reese Witherspoon’s wedding. They have also backed up Nick Cave, Tim Robbins, and Lucinda Williams. The Americans appear throughout American Epic, a four-hour primetime PBS / BBC special produced by Jack White, Robert Redford, and T Bone Burnett. In the film the band appears alongside a number of amazing artists including Elton John, Taj Mahal, Beck, Willie Nelson, The Avett Brothers, and Merle Haggard. The band recorded an original song for Hal Willner’s Son of Rogue’s Gallery (ANTI-Records), an album of sea chanties and pirate songs featuring Tom Waits, Keith Richards, and Iggy Pop, executive produced by Johnny Depp. The Americans’ music is featured in the Michael Mann-produced film Texas Killing Fields, starring Sam Worthington and Chloë Grace Moretz. The soundtrack includes two original songs, “Kiss Your Eyes” and “When The Blaze Is Blue.”
