Raleigh, NC Americana band, New Reveille, who recently signed a label and management deal with Loud & Proud Records, will release The Keep on September 7, 2018. Nashville based producer / engineer Ben Fowler (Rascal Flatts, Ruby Amanfu, Lucy Hale, Kip Moore), a Multi-Platinum, Grammy Award winning, ACM Engineer of the Year nominee, produced their debut release.
“We’re so excited to share our new music with everyone,” says Daniel Cook. “The Keep came together very organically, and with the input from our producer Ben Fowler, and some amazing guest performers, the album just kept evolving throughout the process. We can’t wait to perform the new songs live, and also to see what’s next for us!”
New Reveille is gearing up to play some festivals beginning with a performance at the 19th annual AMERICANAFEST in Nashville on September 15, 2018 at Analog at Hutton Hotel. They will also play the main stage at Groove In The Garden on Saturday September 22, 2018 at the Stephenson Amphitheater & Rose Garden and the IBMA World Of Bluegrass Festival on September 27, 2018 at Kings at 11:00pm both in Raleigh, NC.
Today In Nashville (WSMV-TV NBC) recently featured New Reveille performing the song “Conway Shore” on June 11, 2018 – watch it HERE. They will be back on the show to perform “Way To You” on August 24, 2018. On September 19, 2018 they will appear in an episode of The Attic Sessions, a series of short videos that feature intimate performances and discussions with emerging artists and touring musicians, filmed in the Attic Lounge at the historic War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. New Reveille performed some songs and shared stories behind their song craft as well as their inspirations. In addition to the video released to YouTube, the interview will be released in October as one of the first episodes of a new Attic Sessions podcast. New Reveille have also been on The Vinyl Lunch in Nashville, listen HERE and recently headlined a Sofar Sounds in their hometown.
New Reveille’s distinctive talents find common ground in traditions that stretch back to and beyond early America. On that foundation, they build a unique sound that encompasses the virtues of music that came before and the promise of what it might yet become. Amy Kamm dances deftly on lead vocals between artful interpretive solo parts and three-part female harmonies that somehow soar, caress, and electrify all at once. Daniel Cook (banjo/guitar) and George Hage (guitar) avoid flashy patterns, and instead hearken back to a pre-bluegrass era. Kaitlin Grady on cello, adds a classical element, while blending with Autumn Brand on violin to create mini-orchestral textures and melodies. The songs vary. Lyrics conjure ominous visions and premonitions. Songs are more narrative. They feel personal but also literary, like some sadness from the past preserved in the poetry of song. Their music resonates and grows with each new hearing.
“Hounds,” New Reveille’s first single and video, which will go to radio at the end of July, addresses karma, and how one’s past eventually converges with the present. The title track, “The Keep” was inspired by Amy Kamm’s experience working as a nurse at a prison.
New Reveille self-released an album, Cannonball in 2013, quickly sold out their very first show at Deep South The Bar and soon were playing to standing room only crowds with their powerfully crafted songs, incredible showmanship, and eclectic live shows. They also won the prestigious American Advertising Gold Addy award for their “Babylon” video (over 155,000 views on YouTube) which Daniel Cook produced, edited, and co-directed.
The band name, New Reveille, a tribute to Cook’s military grandfather who played reveille in the mornings, could also mean a “new awakening,” which is how the band members view their signing to Loud & Proud Records, and what it means for their future.

Exclusive items are also available including various signed items, hand-written lyrics, instruments, unique experiences such as Skype cello or violin lessons, an acoustic house concert, and more.
