Personnel
♠     Alexis Marceaux Vocals, Guitar, Aux Percussion
♠     John Craft Violin, Percussion, Guitar, Keyboard, Vocals♠°♠  Exiled after having lost everything in hurricane Katrina, Alexis Marceaux has spent the last decade returning home and building up a career from scratch. The meantime has been hard–fought but fruitful, with appearances at The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Voodoo Music Experience, SXSW, and several tours of the US and Europe. Alexis and bandmate Sam Craft met in 2009 and initially teamed up for Alexis’ sophomore effort Orange Moon (2011). Under the tutelage and engineering of The Polyphonic Spree’s Rick Nelson, the duo drew an all–star cast, 25 of NOLA’s finest musicians of every genre for a big, lush, indie–pop opus with a distinct Louisiana flavor.
♠°♠  Marceaux put out her solo release Dandelion in ‘09, and its songs were picked up by various television shows (MTV’s The Real World, E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and others), but with Orange Moon, she’s elevated herself into a “songwriting force to be reckoned with” (No Depression), securing more media placements, as well as rotation in Starbucks cafés and other stores.
♠°♠  The duo will be on the road in the next several months in support of their brand new LP Move Into View.                                                              © Author Robby Klein

♠°♠  Alexis and the Samurai, the longstanding folk–pop duo of multi–instrumentalists Alexis Marceaux and Sam Craft, wrote the song “Swamp Fire” back in 2011.
♠°♠  “The inspiration,” Craft said in an email, “came from driving on I–10 at night and seeing the marsh grass ablaze on either side of the interstate — extremely haunting, but a weird reminder of how crazy and incredible this place is that we call home.”
♠°♠  Marceaux and Craft, who recently also started up the raucous, percussion–heavy and bilingual (English and Louisiana French) ensemble Sweet Crude, have seen a lot of road lately. When the seven–piece Sweet Crude returns from a string of summer dates in Canada later this week, the two will take the stage at One Eyed Jacks  to celebrate the single release of “Swamp Fire.” The song appears on the forthcoming Alexis and the Samurai LP “Move into View,” which is due out locally in October and nationally in early 2016.
♠°♠  Marceaux’s pop belting drives the propulsive “Swamp Fire,” which is made compellingly eerie by the addition of more electronic waver and wobble than Alexis and the Samurai, whose sound is heavy on violin and acoustic guitar, usually employ.
