A modern band rooted in old-school southern sounds, Folk Soul Revivalwhips up its own version of amplified Americana on the band's self-titled fourth record.The name says it all. Folk Soul Revival, like the band that created it, is an album that celebrates the sounds, stories, and small-town values of an earlier era, modernizing their approach with sharp songwriting and electrifying instrumental work. There's country twang, bluegrass bounce, hillbilly hell-raising, chicken-pickin' guitar, and roadhouse roots-rock, all sandwiched into a track list that mixes heartbreak, honesty, and humor in equal doses. Recorded in Nashville and road-tested on stages across the country, this is Folk Soul Revival's finest work — an album that nods to the glory days of the past while still pushing the band forward.
Hailing from the small mountain town of Castlewood, Virginia, 49 Winchester's unique sound is true to the region's strong culture of grassroots music. The powerful voice and poetic lyrics of singer & guitarist Isaac Gibson shine through the band's melodic songs.
The young band began playing shows in the months following graduating from high-school and has since released two full length albums and have played stages across the East including Mountain Music Festival and Bristol Rhythm & Roots.
