It was in the Pacific
North West at the crossroads of old country, blues and rock and roll where
four music business vets, singer/songwriter William Thomas Anderson,
bassist Donnie Lemmon, drummer/vocalist John Holme and vocalist/guitarist
Scott Riley were baptized in the southern sonic swamp waters and came up
born again as the Green River Revivalists.
It’s no wonder a band of this caliber has come out of the Greater
Seattle Area, the driving rain drove these musicians into the rehearsal
studios, pubs, bars and theaters to sift, stir and brew the magic potion,
a swampy elixir that would captivate the young, the old and
everyone in between crossing genre and generational boundaries.
For a combined total of 100 professional music industry years the
Green River Revivalists have picked their way through the Cotton Fields,
they have Run Through The Jungle, seen the world as the Travelling Band
and taken the last train out of Lodi on the Midnight Special.
Seeing this level of musicianship crash together with their
tangible southern rock and roll vibe will not be hailed as the second
coming of Christ but it very well may be the Christmas miracle of seeing
the spirit of CCR raised to life to rock the planet one more time.
The world needs the honest, socially conscious, clean livin’
music of the people, the world more than ever needs another musical
revival and these good old boys are committed not only to performing the
CCR material in the spirit it was written but also to writing new records
that can be sonically tailored for the 21 century and a new generation
who’s geared up and ready to rock and change the present to make it
better for future generations to come.
“It’s our love of Americana, roots rock, the blues, old country
and social justice that drew us like moths to a flame to the Creedence
Clearwater Revival material and to each other.
Creedence Clearwater Revival is a very honest and real expression
of who we are as musicians and as songwriters so when the four of us had a
sit down it was no time before the mojo was flowing and we saw where our
musical destinies where headed.” WTA
So y’all start crankin’ up those old Creedence records real loud and getting your sing along voices ready, cause the Green River Revivalists’ traveling show will be coming to a town near you REAL soon ya hear!
