Get Around Town

BIO « You just gotta love a classically trained rock band. Ambroise Willaume (vocals, guitar, piano) and Jeremie Arcache (cello, vocals) met as kids at France's prestigious Maitrise Notre Dame de Paris music school, which has been in operation since the 12th century. The pair later teamed up with Christophe Musset (vocals, guitar) to form the basis for their current band, Revolver. While their name is taken from the influential Beatles album, it's a fitting description for the group's evolving sound. Pairing classical chamber music with influences such as Elliot Smith and The Velvet Underground might seem like a particularly daunting task, until you hear the masterful way they pull these influences together. Revolver's French EP, Pop De Chambre, is a delightful collection of folk songs, and it's a prelude to their fantastic debut album, Music for a While. œ (Via KEXP) IN THE PRESS œRevolver played a set full of its signature exquisite folk pop. Each melody and vocal harmony was toe-tapping and softly moving... Revolver's NYC live debut was one that is unforgettable for those who experienced it CMJ 2010 official review (via cmj.com) "Hear the full set of the timeless and versatile guitar group [¦] Revolver brought the house down with its upbeat, seemingly rockabilly-inspired jams. It was amazing to have a band play in a lobby, thousands of miles from home, making its U.S. debut on the air ' live ' and pull it off flawlessly" NPR Music - Favorite session (via KEXP Live from the Ace Hotel Lobby NYC) www.revolvermusic.tv www.twitter.com/revolverfrench
