The Blind Spots / Bio

The Blind Spots, a five-piece rock band featuring electrifying lead singer and force of nature, Maddy Walsh, released a widely-anticipated debut album, El Camino Dream, in 2010 and their sophomore album, Small Stampede, in 2012. El Camino Dream gained immediate attention and was named in the top ten area albums for the year in the band's hometown, Ithaca, NY, a vibrant musical scene. Walsh was named top female vocalist, and one of the songs, "Star," was picked among the best songs of the year. The album features imagistic, metaphor-rich lyrics and powerhouse lead vocals over bold electric guitar and a library of keyboard sounds. They got that paisley, loose-leaf tobacco, indie-pop feel, spilling out of the dark, ethereal space of homelessness and tumbleweed or crackling through a transistor radio over New York City rooftops and still all the ‘tude and sexiness of straight rock and roll...
 
The Blind Spots' trademark brand finds influences in John Lennon, Wilco, The Cars, The Clash, The Rolling Stones, Rilo Kiley, The Pretenders, Jack White, Regina Spektor, Elvis Costello, Keith Moon, Otis Redding, Michael Knight, parents and grandparents, dogs, memories, hangovers, sex, hope, and the utterly ridiculous.

Keep an eye out for the Blind Spots this year – they are well on their way to winning the hearts of new devotees.
