Metamorphosis literally involves a caterpillar devouring parts of itself in order to be birthed into something more beautiful. This metaphor of metamorphosis is one that has been used to describe many an artist’s transformation from raw, earthy garage talent, into something palatable, homogenous, and radio ready... next stop pop stardom.
But what if the butterfly discovers it feels more at home in the earth, digging, digesting and describing the very essence of life, instead of flying high above the tree tops and blue skies of ready-made pop? What if the moth could return to worm? What if you could rewind metamorphosis and strip all the shine away and find that lost anthem of the soul? What if you could scrap the digital and return to the natural state of stripped down analog?
That is just what Jimmy DeTalente and the Electric Revival has done.
With lyrics full of life experience, infused with emotion provoking guitar riffs, tied together with soulful, groove-driven drum parts, Jimmy DeTalente and the Electric Revival's music is comparable to Crowder, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church, and NeedToBreathe.
