The Burners
Portland-Maine is the home of a band whose passion, drive and musicianship can best be described by their name, The Burners. The Burners consist of Songwriter and rhythm guitarist Ryan Flaherty, guitarist Mike Arciero, bassist Duane Edwards, accordionist Laura Balladur and violinist Phil Bloch. This eloquently rowdy ensemble of modern-day gypsy, Americana, French cafe, rock and jazz pioneers are lighting up every stage they play with relentless energy and stage presence. The Wire of Portsmouth, NH describes the Burner's music as "a blend of gypsy Americana played with fire and sweat." Perhaps a more accurate description follows with a comparison to famous bands like Gogol Bordello, The Devil Makes Three and The Doors. There's also a New Orleans street busking vibe going on there.... Virtuosic rhythms on acoustic guitar, mandolin and upright bass are complimented by cafe accordion, hot violin and harmonized vocals.  Captivating lyrics, burning tempos, and diverse instrumentation define the band's music. The crisp sonority of each song invokes yips, hollers and devilish dancing from audiences everywhere. The Burners hight-spirited songs offer a flavorful stew of fiery, passionate and foot-stomping music.

The Burners formed in 2011 as a vehicle for guitarist and singer Ryan Flaherty. Flaherty had put in the hours to hone himself into a razor-sharp guitarist and polish his songwriting craft. Flaherty had written a handful of tunes rooted in Americana and Gypsy Jazz styles. He began playing these tunes with jazz and tango guitarist Mike Arciero and bassist Duane Edwards from Portland, ME. The mix of folk and gypsy styles became the backbone of The Burners original style. They released Flaherty's first album "Hungry Moon" in 2011. Soon after accordionist Laura Balladur, vocalist Jennie Backstrom and violinist Phil Bloch came on board to round out The Burners sound. On February 26th, 2012, the musicians recorded their album "Here Comes Everyone" in a matter of three hours at Acadia Studios in Portland, ME. The outcome was amazing. In a few hours the band had recorded a stellar live album that sounded like it had taken months to record. The band released the album the next month and it was accepted into Pandora Radio's genome by the end of March, 2012.
