Artist of the Month: The Revivalists

The Revivalists

If I could describe this band with one word it would be... RAW. They have a great ole southern rock n roll sound but with touches of New Orleans Jazz & Funk. It's oddly exciting and calming all at once.  I think you'll have to give them a listen to decipher them out for yourself. All I know, is that there is something special about The Revivalists and their sound.

 I haven't had the pleasure of going to any of their shows, but my very good friend has gone to quite a few and she tells me that it's truly a great experience. I was also informed that besides the music that David Shaw (lead vocals) is another reason to go see them.  Hopefully, I'll have a chance to on the 16th at The Maple Leaf. ::fingers crossed:: If you'd like to see them, you can check out their show schedule {here}.

They have an EP titled The Revivalists that has 5 songs on it as well as their first album titled Vital Signs which features many great songs! My favorties are "Catching Fireflies" "Appreciate Me I" and "Hurricane Winselow."   On their official site, it says that a new album will be released in early 2012.
