CD Review: The Dustbowl Revival Bring Together Their 8-Piece Band For A New Album

From Los Angeles, CA comes the new self-titled album from The Dustbowl Revival. Their music is drenched in New Orleans' French Quarter history as they follow the blueprint laid out by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, but with their own flair added to the music. Their new album will be released on June 16th through the Signature Sounds label and showcases the power of this 8-piece band.

Their new 11-song release begins with the rhythm/horn duel of "Call Me Name" as singers Liz Beebe and Zach Luptin share the lead vocal duties on this funk fueled number. They continue with the jazzy-pop feel of "If You Could See Me Now" and the dynamic, quick pace of "Good Egg." The Dustbowl Revival deliver the gospel-soul infused "The Story," before slowing the tempo down for the mellow country tones of "Debtor's Prison." The album's first single, "Busted" is a slinky, soulful song that allows Beebe to take control of the spotlight with her vocals. Grammy-winning blues artist Keb' Mo duets with Beebe on the bluesy feel of "Honey I Love You." The Dustbowl Revival finish up their new release with the quiet, acoustic folk of "Got Over" and the seven-minute, slow-moving, Americana sound of "Don't Wait Up."

The Dustbowl Revival are currently on their U.S. tour which runs through to September. For a complete list of live shows and to find out more about their new self-titled studio album, please visit
