The Rev, Whiskey Rebellion Review
Connect with The Rev: Facebook |
Based in Scottsdale, AZ, The Rev is an ensemble of seasoned musicians with a sound all their own. Though rooted in country, the songwriting comprises elements of outlaw swamp stomp, Brian Wilson inspired harmonies, Brit pop structures, and southern rock guitar styling, all within an indie vibe. It took a series of not-so-happy accidents to get here. Founding member and singer/songwriter, Eric Meyers, nearly died before he wrote a single note. An avid surfer and all-around waterman, one of his favorite hobbies is the ancient art of free diving (that’s no scuba tanks, just a big breath hold). Meyers went diving for lobsters off of San Diego late one night in October of 2017 and almost didn’t return. He was swept into an undersea cave and barely made it out before he blacked out and drowned. That night changed everything. Meyers turned his focus to songwriting and by the time the New Year came around, he had written the first four in what would become a long roster of songs. On November 30th, 2018, The Rev released their debut single, “El Diablo.” The band is simultaneously putting the final touches on their upcoming winter 2019 EP and have begun recording songs for their full-length LP, due to be released in fall of 2019. Until that time listeners can enjoy “Whisky Rebellion,” the Rev’s latest single.
