Press Quotes & Articles

"ThaMuseMeant, a quartet with an unbelievably original sound, is not your average rock band, and it’s difficult to place its music into any one category. It successfully combines elements of bluegrass, country, rock, swing, folk, jazz and jam rock. These, paired with melodic vocals and lyrics rivaling those of Bob Dylan, create a one-of-a-kind musical experience."
- Kari Freund Daily Lobo 2/15/01

On Silver Seed, Pelta’s sultry gypsy-style fiddling brings fresh perspective to the image-driven lyrics of veteran members Moore and Curl. Curl stands out on this latest effort with vocals making her seem like the love child of Björk and Reeltime Traveler Martha Scanlan. ThaMuseMeant tastefully channel swing, jazz and old-time styles in their original acoustic folk material. Given the geographical meandering of this now Portland-based troupe of musicians, it is astounding that their mesmerizing new album comes across absolutely focused and grounded.
-Caroline Keys

Building on the sweet jangle of bluegrass but tilting its face to absorb the rays of modern folkgrass, alt country and gypsy jazz, ThaMuseMeant entangles a crisp rural twang, a lazy front porch rumble, and a sneaky, creeping story quality of mischief, sinister parlours and shadowy, back corners of smoky pubs, all wrapped up within the unassuming voice of guitar, mandolin, fiddle and the common country folk get-up. Standing out as a favorite among the jam band and bluegrass scene, their ability to inject innovation into well worn, exhausted genres, especially with Amiee Curl's spooky, distinctive vocals, gives this gang of musicians the striking talent to light a fire under the ass of good, ol' time music.
