Love songs for lumberjacks, bluegrass for punk rockers, serenades for sailors, drinking songs for desperate nights.

US songwriter Everett Badmarsh writes songs about love, heartbreak, disaster and the search for beauty in a broken world. Together with bandmates Larry Coldberg, Kurt Amundsen, Lasse Kristensen, and Tony Karlsen, Badmarsh explores a musical landscape which draws upon the last 100 years of American popular music, mixing old-time string band, folk, and second-line jazz with punk, country and rock’n’roll. 

Formed in 2010, the Fabulous Flea Market Band have released multiple recordings on the Crescent City label: ‘A little something for everyone’ (EP) 2011, ‘Queen of Denmark’ (single) 2013, and the full length eponymously titled ‘The Fabulous Flea Market Band’ (LP) 2014. 

The Fleas have opened for Americana legend Justin Townes Earl, performed on Norway’s TV Norge together with honorary member, snowboard champion Daniel Franck, toured throughout the US and Scandinavia, played numerous festivals and gained a loyal following on both sides of the Atlantic.

The band is currently in the studio recording their second full-length album.
