It’s fitting you might have caught a glimpse of Alexis & the Samurai's exploits on HBO's Tremé and NBC's The Voice. However, the it's pair's off-screen efforts that have been earning them so many good ratings.

Exiled after having lost everything in hurricane Katrina, Alexis Marceaux has spent the last several years returning home and building up a career from scratch. The meantime has been hard-fought but fruitful, with appearances at The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Voodoo Music Experience, SXSW, and several tours of the US and Europe. The two 20-somethings initially teamed up for Alexis' sophomore effort Orange Moon (2011). Under the tutelage and engineering of The Polyphonic Spree’s Rick Nelson, the duo drew an all-star cast, 25 of NOLA’s finest musicians of every genre (including Paul Sanchez, Andrew Duhon, "Big Sam" Williams, and many more), for a big, lush, indie-pop opus with a distinct Louisiana flavor. Duo partner and "samurai" Sam Craft, an already-ubiquitous sideman in many outfits around town says "I wanted to tap into all the friends I've made along the way, through playing with my rock band Glasgow and [trad-jazz behemoth] The New Leviathan Oriental Fox-trot Orchestra", both of which had independently achieved great success locally and nationally. "New Orleans musicians have huge hearts and we're grateful for them sharing their talents with us," says Craft.
