Bred from the ashes of brothers Blair and Ian Dewane's now defunct but much loved indie pop band The Skooners, Rusty Maples started out as Las Vegas strip busking sessions between singer Blair Dewane and classically trained cellist Courtney Waldron. Those early busking sessions were well recieved by
the public, and feeling that they had something special going on they quickly added more members to make a full band adding songwriting partner/brother/lead guitarist Ian Dewane, multi-instrumentalist Mike Weller from prominent Las Vegas bands Hungry Cloud and A Crowd Of Small Adventures, on bass, and Minneapolis/Des Moines transplant Max Plenke on drums. Rusty Maples quickly found a sound all their own. Combining alt-country, folk, surf, garage-punk, and west coast sparkly indie pop. Rusty Maples has risen to the forefront of the Las Vegas indie scene, with comparisons to The Lumineers, Local Natives, Mumford and Sons, The Shins, and The Walkmen.
