The Last Revel
From the budding music scene of the Upper Midwest comes the cutting edge Front Porch Americana soundscapes of The Last Revel. This powerfully talented trio of multi-instrumentalists from Minneapolis, Minnesota so naturally blends the genres of Folk, Rockabilly, Old Time String-Band and Rock to create a sound that is as equally original as it is timeless. The Last Revel trio utilizes their multi-instrumental abilities to bring the acoustic guitar, upright bass, fiddle, 5-string banjo, harmonica, kick drum and three-part vocal harmonies together to consistently deliver “Bombastic live performances,” as well as delicate and haunting folk ballads.
With their second, self titled, album released in May of 2015, The Last Revel further demonstrates their ability to create rich and delicately textured recorded material with a modern “tip of the hat” to the storied history of American folk music.
Jon Stickley Trio
"Sure, comparisons to previous musicians are a good way to explain a new artist to the masses, but to do so is to cheat Stickley of what he really is... a damn genius, a musical mastermind, and one of the most unique, creative, and inventive guitar players I've ever heard.
Since bluegrass players started delving into jazz, they've been composing progressive acoustic music, but so much of it has lacked the comfort in its own skin that Stickley's songs possess. I could go on and on about how amazing it is that his twisty and turny songs don't feel forced, and always bob and weave at the right time; or how Stickley's guitar playing shares as much in common with the flow of the greatest rappers of all time as it does with his flatpicking heroes..." -Anders Beck (Greensky Bluegrass)
