And The Revellers Fell

BandAmericanaAcoustic

Acoustic-based Urban Americana puts older musical forms through a raw, progressive urban lens. Sound features lived-in voices with two-man harmonies, complex rhythmic interplay, winding guitar lines and articulate drumming makes the many odd-timed grooves sound even again.

Biography

JJ Deiso started the post punk band UDET with drummer Scotty Imp, developing an articulate, highly syncopated rhythm section over 5 years. Then the duo left their guitarist and Deiso began playing acoustic guitar and adopting a post-Americana style incorporating his blues, jazz, and country background he acquired while living in New Orleans. The duo eventually teamed up with Radian Records artist Lola Johnson, whose blues -with-a jazz teardrop style complimented Deiso's style well. During an early gig as a trio, a dancing fan approached the stage demanding a bass player. Julian Woolsey has been playing bass for the band ever since.

And The Revellers Fell play acoustic-based Urban Americana that features lively instrumental interplay, down-home, two-man vocal harmonies, spacious arrangements, and rigorous rhythm playing, in grooving odd meters that drummer Imp makes sound even again.

Lyrics

Jump My Mind

Written By: Jason Deiso

I came around from the other side,
baby, you don't want to know.

I have a way with the lonely ones,
Who won't waste my time
She Jumped my mind

Don't get along with no uptown girls,
baby, I don't want to know
I have a thing for the only ones
Who won't wast my time
She jumped my mind.

Time I find the one I know
To hold me in the quiet air
I settle for nothing I know
She won't be my maybe
Be my maybe
Be my maybe

Unrelenting

Written By: Casey Waldman & Jason Deiso

Pure and unrelenting
This love, I cant undo
For the gentle heart that sings
Inside of you
Through all my travels
For all of these years
I waited for the queen
I knew you would appear

Where have you gone
Won't you return
It seems I've lost again
I guess I'll never learn

Your truth and wisdom
Electric beauty and grace
Every corner I turn
I want to see your face

The face that gives me solace
Nights wrapped in you
Don't tell me I don't know
I'm damn sure I do

Where have you gone?
Won't you return?
It seems I've lost again
I guess I'll never learn
