THE LAST REVEL
From the storied music scene of the Upper Midwest comes the cutting edge Front Porch Americana soundscapes of The Last Revel. This powerfully talented collective of songwriters from Minneapolis, Minnesota so naturally blends the genres of Folk, Old Time String-Band and Rock to create a sound that is as equally original as it is timeless. Drawing influence from their salt of the earth Midwest ethos the band’s songs are roots in the characteristic that has made that region the heartbeat of America.
The Last Revel utilizes their multi-instrumental abilities to bring the full spectrum of modern Americana to life with lush arraignments of three-part vocal harmonies, acoustic and electric guitars, upright bass, fiddle, and 5-string banjo to consistently support impassioned performances of their honest and heartfelt songwriting. With their third full length album, Hazard & Fate, The Last Revel further demonstrates their ability to create rich and delicately textured recorded material with a modern “tip of the hat” to the storied history of American folk music.
Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Joseph Huber was a founding member of the .357 String Band–a group that, despite its abrupt break-up, still continues to gain popularity and is known as one of the most influential groups in the recent insurgent underground country and bluegrass movement. Having moved from .357, Huber has honed his songwriting abilities immensely and now continues moving onward and upward captivating folks with his sincere and well-crafted songs under his own name and with his backing band.
