In late 2005, the first song was written. By late 2006, the skeleton for the first record was laid out and scratch recordings were underway. In February of 2007, the first show was played to a small room of around 150 people and Old Southern Moonshine Revival was born. In October of 2007, Old Southern Moonshine Revival released their self-titled debut album to a sold out Ziggy's crowd in Winston-Salem, NC…
Flash forward five years to 2012. With their second full-length album debuting it's first few weeks inside iTunes Top 100 Country Albums, Old Southern Moonshine Revival is touring in support and is turning heads everywhere they go. "It has been a ton of hard work, but we love what we do. We have to do this. It's not something we can turn off." says lead vocalist Marcus Kiser. "These songs hit close to home for us, and we are finding that they hit close to home for a lot of people. That's a pretty special connection between the artist and the listener. We don't take that sort of thing lightly." Neither do the fans. Old Southern Moonshine Revival has shipped music or merchandise to 40 different countries around the world, have 45,000+ online friends/fans/followers, and "The Revival", as they call it, is still growing. "We love our job. We take it very seriously, but it is hard to not have fun playing music for a living" explains lead guitarist Brent Lain. "We enjoy the hard work side of this business. It is gratifying to see our hard work come together into something way bigger than ourselves."
Old Southern Moonshine Revival has a unique sound and a unique approach of making that sound heard. "Passion. Above all else. Passion." adds bassist Jamie Shaver. "People know when you're faking it. They know when you don't believe in what you're doing. Passion breeds followers. I am a perfect example of that."
No one knows what the future holds, but if Old Southern Moonshine Revival has anything to do with it, The Revival is going to keep right on spreading. Around your town. In every state. Everywhere there is an ear to hear, The Revival is coming...
