About The Patti Fiasco

The Patti Fiasco

Jet-fueled by powerhouse frontwoman Alysia Kraft, The Patti Fiasco rides the edge of emotional extreme, delivering a brash, yet fiercely soulful brand of rock and roll with a heavy dose of rockabilly, blues, and ballad. At times raw and volatile, and at others, sweet and lilting, the band fuses a hard-rock swagger with the two-step of its Wyoming roots. It’s the attitude of Joan Jett with a Steve Earle twang, the soul and slide of Bonnie Raitt, Black-Keys-style dirty blues-rock, and the lyric edginess of Shovels and Rope.

Alysia Kraft’s unrelenting energy, inspired songwriting, and vocals “as pure and clean as they are powerful” (Westword) earned her The Colorado Sound 2023 Award for most Outstanding Live Performer. The dobro, handmade and electrified—literally—by band member and 2007 RockyGrass dobro competition winner Ansel Foxley, builds the band’s signature blend of rock, country, and Americana. Lead guitarist Dee Tyler’s riffs range from gritty and driving to pensive and melodic, and his backing vocals add warmth to Kraft’s pointed lyrics. Hailing from some of Wyoming’s tiniest towns, the Patti Fiasco has made a significant mark on the Rocky Mountain Region in their over ten years performing together – sharing stages with Blondie, Nathanial Raitliff and the Night Sweats, Ben Harper and Charlie Musslewhite, and building fervent fans and community everywhere they play. Reinvigorated by line-up changes, a creative refresh provided by solo pursuits, and a “best yet” collection of new songs, The Patti Fiasco will release its first new music since 2016 in spring 2024.

Presented in collaboration with Swallow Hill Music.
