After 3 years, 1000+ shows, and 12,000 albums sold, The Statesboro Revue is running on all cylinders. Their first record was produced by Grammy winner David Z(Prince,Jonny Lang) with the goal of creating groove-oriented, old-school rock n roll music, according to primary songwriter and singer Stewart Mann. "People call us rock, r&b, blues, country, Americana, southern rock. All I know is every song we put out has substance to it, heart and soul, fire and grit. Call it what you want, all we can do is keep making the music we believe in. A huge part of our sound is the caliber of talent I have behind me, and it's a beautiful thing." That talent Mann is referring to is a star-studded lineup from a wide array of backgrounds, and their cohesiveness and staying power is frightening. From the top, guitar player Garrett Mann is a tasty, lick oriented player who sits back but can also step up and take over a show when called upon. Knaak, on the other hand, is the driving force behind the wall of incendiary guitar playing that has come to be a Statesboro Revue staple. On the bass is Ben Bradshaw, whose funk and soul background fits perfectly with Mann's groove-laden tunes. Drummer Mike Peters is a machine behind the kit. Rounding out the lineup is Stewart Mann, whose soulful, powerful, and incommensurable voice truly sets The Statesboro Revue apart from other bands. His ability to dive into the emotion of his songs and vary his attack and timbre is something rarely seen or heard. Combined with his knack for hooky, groove-filled songs, Mann is about as diverse as a singer/songwriter comes. The savvy and prowess of this band is a force to be reckoned with, and if you've seen them you'll realize for yourself why Rolling Stone said they were one of the highlights of SXSW 2009. With the new album, a label deal,& a radio release, don't stand in their way, just get up & groove
