Elephant Revival / Press

““Their sophisticated hybrid of American roots music … the quality of sound that they make with fiddle, guitars, mandolin, banjo, double bass, and washboard are an embarrassment of riches in terms of distinctive lead voices.””

The Harold Scotland

““The band has a particular talent for arrangements, their songs marbled with changes of pace and mood, their instruments and vocal harmonies orchestrated in poignant interludes.””

““If this [Elephant Revival] doesn’t make you smile, something is wrong with you.””

New York Times

“Elephant Revival is a magical blend of melodies and rhythms, with their roots in the past and hearts in the future.”

of String Cheese Incident - Billy Nershi

“...the CD brims with poised folk ballads, modern Celtic fiddle dirges, hints of blues and Appalachia… coaxing the spirit but slyly avoiding climbing fully into each form’s body.”

“Following the lead, but not the footsteps, of groups like Leftover Salmon and the Yonder Mountain String Band, the five-piece Elephant Revival has created a unique and appealing modern acoustic sound simultaneously soaked in all manner of tradition”

Jeffrey Keith - Marquee Magazine

“When I hear Elephant Revival I am struck by my inability to define it. I am forced to confront the music as it is, connecting to it with a virgin spirit of mind. Consequently it feels like I am experiencing music and all its joys for the very first time.”
