So Delicious, the seventh studio album from renowned Blues/Rock outfit Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band blew out of the gate and already is making its mark on the blues world, debuting this week at a lofty #3 spot on the Billboard blues chart. With strong support from independent retail—including release week in-stores at legendary locations like Landlocked, Indy CD & Vinyl, Culture Clash, Shake It, Grimey’s and Vintage Vinyl—So Delicious continues a string of critically and commercially acclaimed releases from The Rev and his unique musical crew. Now in the midst of a flurry of tour dates which span both the U.S. and around the globe, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band are setting themselves up for an even greater level of success and notoriety as a group that is truly keeping the blues alive and well.
The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is something of a phenomenon in today’s music scene. Amidst a bevy of so-called “roots” artists, the Rev. and crew truly embody the roots of American music. Citing legends like Charlie Patton and Muddy Waters as influences, the Big Damn Band’s music exhibits a more genuine homage to the early blues greats than almost anything produced today, all delivered with a ferocious energy. In light of the authenticity of their sound and vibe, legendary Shanachie Blues imprint Yazoo Records is the perfect match for The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band.
