Bio: They call Jimmie Bratcher “The Electric Rev.”

Not only because his lightning-strike performances crackle with high-voltage guitar playing and emotionally charged vocals. Or because Bratcher makes the hairs rise on the arms of the crowds he entertains in the map of clubs, festivals, bike rallies,...See Full Bio

“Secretly Famous is the seventh studio album for preacher/guitarist/vocalist Reverend Jimmie Bratcher, but according to Bratcher, “I really feel like it’s my first.” The Rev explores his roots with a blend of back-porch blues, grime, and hope that feels just right. Joining Bratcher on the album is Craig Kew on bass, Lester Estelle Jr. on drums, and Rick Steff on keys. Kew’s bass lines are grimy, funky, and soulful at the same time and lift this album to another level. Kew can walk and shuffle hard, but his syncopated, yet melodic bass lines create a masterfully funky groove on several tunes, most notably on “57,” which is one of the best tracks on the album. This is a good album, well worth listening to, and there’s not a single subpar track on the record. It’s progressive and hard-hitting, but also pays plenty of homage to the blues, country, and rock ‘n’ roll of days gone by. The Review: 9/10 Can’t Miss Tracks – 57 – Tobacco Road – When I Fall Apart ”
