The Rev performs new EP at Grace Records

The Rev kicks off 2020 with an acoustic performance in Mesa, Ariz


The Americana band known as The Rev performed at Grace Records in Mesa, Ariz. This was its first performance of the new year as they showcased new songs such as "Rain Like Wine" and " Whiskey Rebellion." The performance took place in a small venue setting with very intimate songs and interactions throughout the night.

"There's something exciting about playing brand new material for people that have never heard it and gauging their reaction. What you see is what you get," said lead guitarist and singer Eric Meyers.

The listener gets to hear the song in its most raw form and there's something gratifying about that, according to Meyers. This is the start of a trend for the indie rock/ Americana band as they are in the introductory stage of its existence. Meyers and the rest of the band plan to continue playing acoustic sets and local performances throughout the valley. Releasing all of this new material sets them up to play a lot of live shows with the band and hopefully get to participate in some music festivals, according to Meyers.

"I'm chomping at the bit for the rest of 2020," said Meyers.

A highlight from the night was getting to hear the guitars at work and the solos performed by Meyers as he performed under pressure. Also, to see the hard work of producer Josh Rosenboom shredding throughout the night. The future is full of content for this new band located in the valley as they are already working on a new EP heading into 2021.

"I see 2020 like a great big runway that's going to help us lift off and really get out there and show everybody who we are. It'll give them a true taste of our sound," said Meyers.

If you love the indie-pop band called, "The Smithereens," then you'll love the lead guitar part in the hit song "Theory of Everything." Meyers loves to pay homage and incorporate to music that he loves and grew up listening to as a kid.
