The New York Music Daily calls Muddy Ruckus "Darkly Inventive Americana." Guitarist Ryan Flaherty and percussionist Erika Stahl of Auburn, Maine, play a grungy style of railroad indie punk blues and brimstone folk. The band blends rootsy guitar and edgy percussion on a suitcase drum kit, and is known for a full rock band sound, despite their duo status. They season their music with “in-your-face” lyrics salted by the Eastern old ports and mud of the Mississippi River where Flaherty grew up. Muddy Ruckus was awarded Best in State of Maine 2015 by the New England Music Awards. Their second album, “Pretty Bones,” was awarded 2016 Album of the Year by Red Line Roots. The band was also awarded 2017 Rock N’ Rollers of the Year by RLR. Their third album, "Bellows To Mend," was released in June 2018.
