Raleigh, North Carolina Americana band New Reveille featuring Amy Kamm, lead vocals, Daniel Cook, banjo, guitar, and vocals, and Autumn Brand fiddle and vocals recently made a swing out to the west coast to promote their newest album, The Keep. They were joined by special guest, Los Angeles based session musician, Adam Tressler on guitar and banjo.
The band stopped off at San Diego’s historic Liberty Station for a free outdoor concert, part of the Liberty Station Art District First Friday Concert Series. Liberty Station, the former home of the Naval Training Center, is now filled with art galleries, shops, restaurants, dance studios, theatres, and public parks and open gardens where locals and visitors alike come to discover the true spirit of San Diego and listen to live music.
New Reveille was named one of the top ten new country acts to know by Rolling Stone Country in August 2018. The band is worth checking into for their irresistible blend of energy and twang.
Despite the constant sound of jets taking off from nearby San Diego International Airport the band performed a wonderful acoustic set. Autumn even joked about a new song called “Blame it on the Plane”. I for one can’t wait to hear it.
If you like Delta Rae, Amanda Shires, vintage Black Lillies, or Mandolin Orange, then you need to check out New Reveille. Amy’s vocal are pure and traditional. When she and Brand harmonize, well it doesn’t get much sweeter.
The band played mostly originals but threw in a couple covers as well. The full setlist is below:
Rock of Ages (Gillian Welch Cover)
Only Promised Land
Truly Been the One
Way to You
Hardest of Wine
All These Things That I Have Done (Killers Cover)
