Rusty Maples

Bred from the ashes of brothers Blair and Ian Dewane's now defunct but much loved indie pop band The Skooners, Rusty Maples started out as Las Vegas Strip busking sessions between singer Blair Dewane and classically trained cellist Courtney Waldron. Those early busking sessions were well received by the public, and feeling that they had something special going on they began adding more members to make a full band, picking up songwriting partner/brother/lead guitarist Ian Dewane, Mike Weller from prominent Las Vegas bands Hungry Cloud and A Crowd Of Small Adventures on bass, and Minneapolis transplant Max Plenke on drums. With the full lineup locked in, Rusty Maples wasted no time booking nationwide, first opening for David Bazan and soon thereafter stepping in as the backing band for New York's OK SWEETHEART during her 2012 SXSW tour and showcase. In 2013, their month long spring tour includes a SXSW showcase and the Tree Fort Music Festival in Boise, Idaho.

With a sound all their own combining alt-country, folk, surf, garage-punk, and west coast sparkly indie pop, Rusty Maples has risen to the forefront of the Las Vegas indie scene, with comparisons to The Lumineers, Local Natives, Mumford and Sons, The Shins, and The Walkmen.

"Check ’em out if you like … Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon or Ra Ra Riot. From the high-energy performances and drumming style to their use of rhythmic guitars, The Who’s influence is evident in the band’s dynamic and sound." - Vegas Rated

"In 2012, Rusty Maples released the game-changing EP, Make Way, drawing comparisons to bands like Mumford and Sons, Kings of Leon and The Lumineers. The Las Vegas Weekly named Rusty Maples “Best Live Band of 2013” in its annual Readers’ Choice Awards." - Mix 94.1 FM
