Who: Alpha Rev
Where: Austin TX based band
What: alternative folk/Americana
Sounds like: Needtobreathe and Five for Fighting
While only recently discovered by these ears as a result of Casey McPherson’s gig with the prog rock supergroup Flying Colors, Austin based band Alpha Rev’s have been around since 2005. With three releases to their name the band are finally beginning to secure some of the recognition they deserved. Combined the thoughtful intellectual lyrics, memorable melodies along with the instantaneously recognizable vocals of McPherson songs like “New Morning”, “Sing Loud” and “Highways” contain all the ingredients for a successful band. It only leaves you scratching your head wondering why it has not yet happened. In this musical world of 15 minute fame Alpha Rev’s success is way overdue and deserve to be heard.
New Artists coming at you all the time.
