The Americans play original rock and roll with a roots twist - something a little different. They have been on The Late Show with David Letterman, played with Grammy and Oscar winners like Ryan Bingham and entertained at Reese Witherspoon's wedding. They appeared in the PBS/BBC program American Epic, recorded a song for Hal Wimer's Son of Rogue's Gallery and music for the Texas Killing Fields. And they are playing live, her in LA, joining last week's guest laura Jean Anderson at her CD release party next week. But first, they get to talk to us.
