Brian Revels is energy and angst in a comet trail of music that is as perceptive as it is entertaining. He hearkens back to an earlier time, a bygone era when words were true and hearts were strong. His observations of Americana ring with authenticity, with the rawness of earth, the clarity of rainwater and the depth of the sky.

He’s a wily veteran of the Atlanta, Georgia music scene, a multi-instrumentalist, a natural-born storyteller with a poetic edge. He helped to build the band City Mouse into a regional force before it was finally time to step out on his own. He’s from folk and blues and country and bluegrass, an alternative to them all and a better man for their influences. The hole he’s worn in his guitar is not as large as the one he’s worn in his heart with the cares of the lives he hopes he can redeem one song at a time.

Be sure you see him now so you can say you knew him when – before the wider world discovers him and lifts him away. His timeless musicality will touch your soul with the drama, and the significance, of love lost and regained, of the human frailty that reduces and yet ennobles each of us.

Papa Jack Couch is a singer/songwriter of insight and wit. He performs originals forged over long years of two-lane blacktops and smoke-rise sundowns, with direct influences reaching back to Gram Parsons and Johnny Cash. Emerging with relevance and thump, he brings fresh perspective to the age-old themes; life of the soul, pain of the heart. His material resonates especially with those still trying to grow into full-fledged adulthood.  

With a voice of Tupelo honey over burnt sourdough, and a rhythm playing style -- on a battered ‘59 hockshop Martin -- just good enough to forestall eviction, his performances are always saved by inventive, insightful writing and an amazing range of observation.  

After spending his formative years all over Georgia, Florida and Alabama, and having survived two separate invasions of Nashville, most of his life has played out in Southeast Georgia’s endless pines and mysterious swamplands. He now lives in Meriwether County and loves nothing more than coming into town and playing hard won, hand carved music.
