The Defendants Band / Press

“Western in nature with psychedelic leanings, Ron Ellis Gaut’s band the Defendants is not just another geriatric blues-folk creation. The quartet experiments within the realm, going tit-for-tat with classic Stratocaster solos and groovy bass lines. In the vein of fellow Portland act Scotland Barr (RIP) & the Slow Drags, the members of the Defendants boast an old-friend feel, feeding off each other's every move almost telepathically. And while frontman Gaut may lead on paper, this rootsy band is as balanced as a brand-new checking account. ”
