“When you listen to these guys, you get to the marrow of the Delta blues. It’s visceral and rough-hewn, yet polished at the same time...”   - Mariss McTucker, Lively Times

“These guys roar out of the chute with the bare bones elements that drive all the best rhythm and blues: gritty electric guitar, elastic bass and a backbeat that punches you right in the sternum.” - Bob Wire, Missoula Independent

MudSlide Charley is currently promoting their fourth album, Words & Bones, which was released March 2nd, 2018.  The album was recorded in Missoula, MT at Black National Studio with recording engineer, Chris Baumann.  Words & Bones, is thirteen tracks and 59 minutes of genuine Missoula born, ramshackle soul. 

This is an excellent refreshing eclectic Blues album by this Missoula Montana based five-piece band who play the Blues the way I believe it should be played, with grit and straight from the heart…Montana is often referred to as being “wild & untamed”, this perfectly describes Mudslide Charley, please don’t ever change. Blues Matters

“Lee Rizzo’s vocal chops are on full display on “Death Letter Blues,” a Son House song recorded live during a Union Club show.  Her raw passion and burnished growl are almost frightening, but perfect for the bare-knuckled blues classic.” - Ednor Therriault, Missoula Independent

Mudslide Charley are a very interesting band out of Montana, who play rough, raw and raucous blues and roots music…Mudslide Charley have a very distinctive, almost ramshackle sound, one that appears to be constantly teetering on the edge of disaster. But this untamed quality only adds to the band’s charm. Littig and Hamilton both lay down a series of uninhibited but spot-on solos that never forget to serve the song first and foremost, while the rhythm section of Moquin and Kjelland are as comfortable on the rumbling gospel of “Burden”, the quiet restraint of “Jelly Donuts” or the Tom Waits-esque “Devil Can’t Stop The Rain”.
