Labelled “progressive edge” for their 2010 album Break in the Cloud, the Colorado folk band Elephant Revival combines elements of celtic, bluegrass, indie rock, and traditional folk with psychedelic country, jazz standards, reggae, and periodic hip-hop influences. The quintet creates a unique but unbelievably harmonious sound often referred to as “transcendental folk.”
Elephant Revival is currently on tour, so look forward to hearing songs from any one of the band’s four albums. With the release of their latest album in 2013, These Changing Skies, the band proved its unwavering commitment to quality sound. Recorded at the family owned Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville, Washington, the album was produced by Ryan Hadlock, best known for his work on The Lumineer’s platinum selling self-titled album. As if their incredible sounds are not enough, the band possesses a clear commitment to social consciousness as they reveal nature’s beauty through their music and work with various humanitarian nonprofits.
Catch them next Friday, March 7th, at the Mystic Theatre in Petaluma. We'll see you there!
