The Revelations featuring Tré Williams
I picked up the message below from Southern Soul:
How's it going everyone?! My name is Bob and I'm new to the group. I'm an A&R/record
producer in NY and huge fan of Southern Soul Music in general.
I was hoping to put you guys up on a band I'm developing called "The Revelations feat. Tre Williams". This is a new band based in Brooklyn NY whose sound is pretty heavily influenced by late-60s to mid-70s. The front man, Tre Williams, is a native of Daytona FL and the second singer is from South Carolina.
We're going for a sound built on the classic soul music but with a modern edge.
Let me know what you think, I'd love to know what you guys think...
Check out the video above then drop over to their MySpace:
"Deep Soul": The Revelations' debut EP will be available on iTunes and other digital download services on November 18th 2008
Welcome to The Revelations featuring Tré Williams (Decision Records/Traffic Entertainment). Here, there are no teenage whines, no auto tune, no samples: nothing but pure, unadulterated soul sung by a red dirt artist with the vocal chops of yesterday’s soul legends and played by a band with passion and talent. The Revelations featuring Tré Williams represents a renewed dawning in soul music, one that marries the concrete jungle grit of the streets with the midnight blues of the rural South. The rawness of Stax and propulsive drive of Motown has been re-imagined for contemporary listeners needing relief from timeless problems. Far from a historical artifact straining to use yesterday’s sound as tomorrow’s gimmick, the songs painstakingly crafted on the Revelations’ debut project, Deep Soul, are born from the pain, frustrations and experience of soul men struggling to give expression to their lives and loves through song. To cull the level of unabashed honesty present on these tunes requires a return to one’s roots to give them the proper weight, meaning and, most importantly, a resonance for the world.
