BROOKLYN OUTFIT’S THIRD EFFORT FEATURES SINGER RELL GADDIS

CHECK OUT THE STYLISH BLACK & WHITE VIDEO FOR “WHY WHEN LOVE IS GONE”

 
Critically-acclaimed soul band The Revelations are getting ready to release their third full-length studio album. The Cost of Living arrives via Decision/Red River/Sony RED Music on April 29th. 

Led by vocalist and songwriter Rell Gaddis, The Cost of Living was recorded at Willie Mitchell’s legendary Royal Studios in Memphis, TN and features five original songs and three cover tunes.  From the first single, a throbbing version of the Isley Brothers tune “Why When Love is Gone”, to the Memphis soul drenched original “Game of Love”, The Cost of Living captures listeners very quickly.

Produced by Bob Perry and Lawrence “Boo” Mitchell, The Cost Of Living also features the bass driven “Mama”, written by Rell and the band, about a single mother scrounging to raise her children, alongside the jaded optimism of  the reggae tinged rocker “It’s Okay.”  With the hard funk groove of “Money Makes The World Go ‘Round” to the heart-broken disillusionment of the soul classic “Got To Use My Imagination” , The Revelations continue their tradition of presenting blues topics with soul music’s urgency, weaving tales of perseverance despite hardship.

Alongside Gaddis (a former Roc-A-Fella signee), The Revelations feature Wes Mingus on guitar, Gintas Janusonis on drums, and newcomer Ben Zwerin on bass. The album also features Stax and Hi Records session legends Bobby Manuel (guitar), Lester Snell (keyboards), and Charles Hodges (organ).

Since they first came on the scene in 2008 with the Deep Soul EP (Decision), The Revelations have made a significant impact on the blues/soul scene. Jim Farber of the New York Daily News wrote, “The (Revelations) songs’ melodies often recall the work of ’70s soul stars, but they’re played with a ’60s fury”. Adds Soul Tracks “… rich music where nothing’s artificial, nothing’s counterfeit, and everything’s just pure, all natural soul.”

The Revelations have provided musical backing for icons such as the Wu-Tang Clan and Lee “Scratch” Perry, as well as soul royalty Otis Clay, Willie Clayton, Benny Latimore, and Swamp Dogg. Their engaging and energetic live performances have won over audiences from Brooklyn to the Mississippi Delta to California as well as Europe, and helped them create fans such as A-listers B.B. King, Bobby Womack and Stevie Wonder in the process.
