With an intoxicating blues rock sound and a youthful energy through the roof, Nashville’s Blackfoot Gypsies have a vision of reaching the top of the Music City’s barrage of artists, with the upcoming April 14 release of their third full-length record ‘To the Top!’ via Plowboy Records.
The Blackfoot Gypsies recently released the first single from ‘To the Top!’ titled “I Had a Vision.” The number gets off to a fiery start with all four members colliding at an intersection of rock’n’roll as an ominous siren lingers in the background. Per Paige, the tune has a lot to do with the current makeup of our world and how it doesn’t align with what he believes it’s capable of.
“I woke up one day and had a lingering dream about life and a better way of living, which is a coincidence with how times are in the world now,” Paige said. “It’s about having a peaceful, good, respectful land to live in, but it’s a dream.”
The Blackfoot Gypsies return to Lexington on Feb. 10 at The Burl for an encore to their stop there last July, the first show in the room. For the show the Gypsies will be supported by local acts The Other Brothers and Alcatraz Shakedown.
The Blackfoot Gypsies have made Lexington a home away from home in recent months, performing at several different venues in town including The Green Lantern and Willie’s Locally Known along with The Burl. The group’s spring tour will see them circle back through central Kentucky once again in The Moonshiner’s Ball from May 19 to 21.
