Last things first: If you like Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, or the Pixies, chances are you'll go apeshit for Lake Worth's zany rock outfit BLACK FINGER. Combining a nomadic mix of bluegrass, punk, and Southern rock, its music has gypsy veins and wanderlust woven into most of the material. The group's debut album, CONTAINS LEAD, is a refreshingly eclectic and textured mix for saints, sinners, and everyone who ends up at tough bars in dusty towns. At times, the music here is so cool, it seems Clint Eastwood himself might jump through your stereo. Attitude and foot-stomping rhythms are eked out of the most unassuming instruments, like Tim Benfield's mandolin and Anne Allaire's fiddle, which is not easy to do. On slide, dobro, and lap steel guitars, Andy McAusland demonstrates he can move you from the fast paced rhythms of edginess to the languid sound of zero gravity with ease. As Greg Lovell, the group's lead singer and ace guitar player, offers mysterious images that toe the line of reality throughout the album, his voice turns gritty, deliberate, and defiant. Find this band and you'll discover a place where the downtrodden get lucky, the timid are untamed, and everyone is allowed to be carefree - Vanessa Hodgkinson - New Times (Palm Beach/Broward)


"BEST NEW BAND OF 2007" - City Link Magazine (Broward/Dade/Palm Beach)


They came, arising out of the murky shadows of the Lake Worth swamp. Riding high on their beaten down airboat, somehow managing to keep their cowboy hats snug on their heads and covering up their skull and crossbones tattoos just enough, so as not to scare the natives. That is how the rock/bluegrass group known as Black Finger burst onto the scene in Palm Beach County. A group that's much more Black Crowes tha Badfinger.
Their debut LP "Contains Lead" positions them in the same Gram Parsons leneage of country rock acts such as The Jayhawks and Wilco, but devoting much more energy to traditional folk sensibilities. BLACK FINGER is unique in so much as they are rock enough to play legendary haunt Respectable Street but country enough to fit on the bill at Willie's Chili Cookoff (which for the record, they have never played).
BLACK FINGER has brought roots music back to Florida. The question now is, who can find a decent jug of Moonshine to compliment their swamp boogie? - Closer Magazine / March 2007
