A refreshing spin on heartland music as beloved by fans of Credence, Tom Petty, and Springsteen. Daily Mirror

"Genius twenty-first century musicians that are reinventing American heritage music for this century. And it sounds even better this century." T Bone Burnett

Absolutely brilliant Anthony Wall BBC 6

Some of the best songwriting I have heard in years.
Ryan Bingham - No Depression

The Americans perform original rock & roll with deep roots in traditional American music. They have 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 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, featuring Nas, Elton John, Alabama Shakes, and Willie Nelson.

The Americans recorded an original song for Hal Willner's Son of Rogue's Gallery (ANTI- Records), an album of sea shanties and pirate songs featuring Tom Waits, Keith Richards, and Iggy Pop, executive produced by Johnny Depp. Reviewing the album in Believer magazine, critic Greil Marcus wrote, The Americans [are] led by Patrick Ferris, whose deep voice doesn't sound like Richard Manuel's but feels like it.

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.
