Gifts or Creatures

Brandon and Bethany Foote

Date, Location

    A unique blend of antique Americana

    Gifts or Creatures is the musical pursuit of husband-wife duo Brandon and Bethany Foote. The couple fuses a blend of midwestern folklore, old world history and cinematic soundscapes to create a conglomeration of antique Americana.

    “A growing patchwork of fretted and keyboard instruments continue to shape the musical landscape in which we travel. Tales that provide a people’s history from our midwestern locale forge the melodic structure and stories we share. With the support of a vast community, Gifts or Creatures has performed throughout the Mitten State with notable acts such as the Red Sea Pedestrians, Seth Bernard & May Erlewine, The Ragbirds, Chris Bathgate and Frontier Ruckus.” (

    Their new record, Yesteryear Western Darkness, is slated for an August 27th worldwide release.
