Album Notes
The Blue and the Grey EP
"Fresh Tampa four-piece Marksmen fuses hard roots and dark Southern rock in their inaugural recording, a solid 25-minute work marked by resounding rhythms and a vocalist whose wails are dosed heavily with raw longing. Singer-songwriter Geri X makes an appearance midway through for “Conformity Is Key,” a pretty acoustic ballad with the ironic refrain, “You’re too caught up inside of your idealistic mind / conformity is key / when love is what you seek / and you shall find, eventually, eventually.” - Leilani Polk, Creative Loafing

"A southern folk-rock foursome peppered with doses of Jason Isbell, My Morning Jacket and especially The Thrills, Marksmen played first on Saturday. If you're into local music, they've got two of the catchiest singles you'll hear all fall: Don't Make a Move and The Blue and the Grey (you can hear both songs on their MySpace). Burly, bearded frontman Matt Segallos has a pleasantly sonorous Southern warble (not far from Conor Oberst territory) to go with a borderline unhinged electricity onstage. And I've got to give it up for drummer Reed Murray, who crushed the kit on the thundrous outro to Arizona." - Jay Cridlin, TBT

"Fans of My Morning Jacket and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit will probably dig Marksmen's new EP. Don't Make a Move is a more revved-up and rocking version of the demo track from which their new name came, The Marksman. Title track The Blue and Grey is 5-1/2 minutes of anthemic Southern rock. And Conformity is a lovely, sunny folk collab with Geri X." - Artist of the Day, TBT

"Marksmen bring big commercial sound with a local budget."

"The Tampa Music sceen is really coming around with bands like The Marksmen." - Jake Moore
