DON'T MISS SUMMER SOUNDS AT THE SAWMILL
Waihekes Aaron Carpenter and The Revelators are going from strength to strength with a new EP out, great reviews including 5/5 stars in Dominion Post.
Popular singer-songwriter, Carpenter, formed his new seven-piece band this year.
Their debut EP called Aaron Carpenter and the Revelators was released on November 13 after a successful show at The Tuning Fork at Vector in late October. The band are promoted by Diva The Agency including a recent stellar performance at – the Rangatira Venue at Q Theatre, 305 Queen St, on December 10.
"Aaron Carpenter and The Revelators are a veteran gaggle of hot shot musicians whose insights keep listeners riveted throughout as they report back on life at the coalface of gritty reality. Their blues/country vibe infuses their music and the stories they tell with a core of authenticity and genuine human experience."
Dominion Post music reviewer Colin Morris says the EP is brash, illuminating, and exceedingly well recorded – considering it was recorded in a barn on Waiheke Island.
"Here is a prediction for 2016: the album will be an absolute smash if this teaser recording is anything to go by."
The Revelators are on tour over summer and Leigh Sawmill is a must on the trail for any band chasing the sun. Along to make up the bill is The Solomon Cole Band and local favourite and very talented; The Dirty Skirts, featuring Tom Irvine and Sophia Faa'logo who are on the crest of releasing their debut E.P.
