Biography

Formed in the reputable music town of Ithaca NY, Revision is a funk/rock band made up of three Ithaca College music grads. Having the instrumentation of Soulive coupled with the songwriting savvy of Wilco, their music grooves, rocks, and has a sincere live energy.

Fueled by their Vegetable Oil van, Revision has averaged over 100 shows a year touring with acts such as Derek Trucks, Soulive, Charlie Hunter, Michael Franti and Spearhead, and The Cat Empire.

Their most recent release "Jeckyll and Hyde" is a two faced masterpiece. The first half is dirty instrumental funk...the perfect party soundtrack. The second half is vocal heavy and stripped down, Elliot Smith meets The Beatles.

The album was mixed by Alan Evans (Soulive) and Matthew Ellard (Elliot Smith, The Slip, Billy Bragg and Wilco).

All their records were released on 1 gig USB drives which include video downloads, artwork and high quality audio.

This band is relentless in the studio, putting out two full length albums and a live DVD in under two years. This has gotten them placements on shows such as ESPN Baseball Tonight, TNT's "Dark Blue", and several independent films.
