Julius Pittman and the Revival

Jun 23, 2018 |  0 comments

The Julius Pittman and the Revival band is the vision of Julius “Ray” Pittman to form a band dedicated to revitalizing ‘Old School’ Rock & Soul sounds of the Memphis Stax Volt era. Julius Pittman has been the leading force for several popular bands over the years, including the Kingpins (1980’s and 90’s) and The Ray Pittman Project, which lead to the evolution of the Julius Pittman and the Revival in February 2009. The music of the “Revival” presents a trip back to funky southern soul. “My overall concept to get into a rock and soul revival, without forgetting our blues and jazz roots,” said Pittman. “Al Green is one of my all-time favorites, and the first time I heard Jack Mack’s first album, ‘Cardiac Party,’ I literally jumped out of my seat. I knew that’s the kind of band I wanted to be in.” Julius Pittman and the Revival brings to the audience, sounds and dynamics reminiscent of Otis Redding, Al Green, Jack Mack & The Heart Attack and Tower...

Stuart Young at the age of 26, has found himself traveling where the music leads. He was raised in the beautiful state of Maine in where music became a passion at the age of 13. He started playing bars and cafe’s at the age of 15 and has continued to love sharing his heart through songwriting ever since. He wants to start a conversation, not just deliver a song and leave. Many of the songs he writes are taken from the most intimate parts of his journal. Tattered and torn but longing for hope; he delivers a song with such transparency that echo the hardships and questions he has on life. He invites the listener to look for hope in the darkness and peace in the pain. Music breaks walls down that people have built over time in their lives. Music allows authentic community to take place. When I write, I write in mind of the listener. I want the ears that listen to have the freedom to ask questions and see hope in the darkness that surround them in life. Music has a way of doing that....

Rachel Garcia and Thu Tran create music as vibrant and diverse as their multiracial backgrounds. Rachel’s rich, nuanced vocal delivery and Thu’s dynamic guitar arrangements provide the backbone for the duo’s swinging, soulful and heartfelt songs that tell emotionally honest and compelling stories. Their identities as mixed-race-Mexican-American and first-generation-Vietnamese-American (respectively) subtly inform the inclusionary, modernist perspective of their lyrics, which provide “smart commentary on social attitudes” (Pasadena Weekly), while their music and melodies cut across decades of classic American song forms, bending and blending genres to produce a unique sound with a fresh, clever and distinct approach to the classic traditions of American jazz, folk and blues. After meeting in 2006, the California-based duo began writing and performing music together. Over the course of two years, as their songwriting developed, they began to incorporate influences from...

Will Kimbrough is one of our favorites here, whether performing on his own or with Emmylou Harris, Rodney Crowell, Jimmy Buffett, or Todd Snider. ”Kimbrough’s body of work reflects a lifetime of performing, writing, and collaborating from more angles than Da Vinci’s protractor. True to his search for universal truths, his profound musical knowledge and expert creations reflect years of learning the intricacies of folk, blues, gospel, country, rock’n’roll, punk rock and jazz.” Kimbrough was born in Mobile, Alabama, and started his musical career as a founding member of Will & the Bushmen, a popular college band in the eighties that produced a handful of albums and singles and made it to MTV. He then went on to form the Bis-quits with long-time friend Tommy Meyer. The Bis-quits produced an eponymous album which was released on John Prine’s Oh Boy Records label. Will is also a producer and has produced albums for Adrienne Young, Rodney Crowell, Todd Snider, Kate...

Lucas Roy is an Internationally Touring artist from Maine. His soul soothing vocals captivate any listener and redefine smooth. He is currently working on his debut EP, expected to be released in December of 2017. He has toured in Iceland and is currently planning a tour down the East Coast of the United States for 2018. Annie Stokes is an indie-folk musician from Virginia. Raised in the nation’s capital on an eclectic mixture of musical theater, bluegrass, and classic Americana, her music is a fusion of city sounds and country soul. Although playing guitar only began as a hobby, soon her hometown was buzzing about “that girl who sounds like Jewel.” Annie’s lilting voice, poetic and introspective lyrics, and fingerpicking style draw listeners in with their rootsy and authentic feel. She’s found, after years of making music and connecting with audiences, that when the artist prioritizes the song and the human experience that it’s based on,...
