The duo of Alexis Marceaux and Sam Craft initially teamed up for Alexis’ second solo album, Orange Moon in 2011. After the project, the two figured out ways to make big live arrangements with just the two of them and began writing songs as a team. On any given song, you may find Craft playing a violin with one hand, a piano with the other, and drums with his feet, all the while Marceaux plays guitar, drums and both of them sing.
Since teaming up, Alexis & the Samurai have been featured on HBO’s Tremé, NBC’s The Voice, and CSI New Orleans. Additionally, they have been nominated Best Rock Band in New Orleans by Offbeat Magazine and have been nominated individually for Best Female Vocalist (Marceaux) and Best Violin/Fiddle (Craft) by the magazine as well. – Bio
