Blood Feathers

Published on March 6th, 2011

Philadelphia rock band Blood Feathers has been gaining a lot of hype over the past year. Blood Feathers started out as a freewheeling classic rock band, fusing together a wide variety of genres from rock to blues to jazz, and even some gospel. The six-piece group first joined forces in 2005, made up of members Ben Dickey (vocals, guitar, piano), Drew Mills (vocals, guitar), Mickey Walker (bass guitar), Patrick Marsceill (drums), Sam Murphy (guitar), and Tracy Stanton (saxophone, percussion, keyboard).

Since recording their debut album Curse & Praise in just a week during 2006, the band has been churning out spectacular tracks with unique elements of horns, keyboards, and four-part harmonies. They have performed all throughout the Philadelphia area, and held live concerts for WXPN and World Café Live.

The group’s second album, Goodness Gracious, was released in 2010 and mixes all of their earlier musical elements to create something that sounds like timeless American rock n’ roll with hints of blues, psych rock, R&B, rockabilly and Western swing. It’s music that is inevitably bound to affect even those dazed wallflowers.

This past October, Blood Feathers had a handful of gigs with The Walkmen and AA Bondy. Keep on the lookout for more performances this spring as they return to the road with The Walkmen.
