The Muckrakes are a 7 piece Alt-Americana band from the backwaters of Hampton Roads / Tidewater Virginia. Formed in 2008, the band has very quickly become a regional favorite. Their energetic live shows and original music has garnered them music nomination(s), praise from the press, their fans and venues.
Their freshmen self titled CD / EP strikes the right chord with wonderful, quirky melodies and harmonies and skillful song writing sets that's bound to please any classical music buff, snotty punk, bluegrass picker, shaggy hippie, bluesman and folkster.
The group has found the right combination of sweet and sinister, of power and weakness, of new and old by staying loyal to their roots of the past and branching out to the new sound of modern Americana.
