CD Review: Jonathan Jeter & The Revelators Debut "Late"

From Texas comes the trio of Jonathan Jeter & The Revelators with their debut EP entitled "Late To My Own Funeral." The saying goes that things are bigger in Texas and this band holds true to that saying by giving us that big alternative country sound.

The album begins with the acoustic, country sounds of "Come On," which is a slow way to start an album. Jeter's hard edge vocal delivery doesn't exactly fit in with the gentle sway of the music on this track, but his vocals are geared more for the up-tempo sounds of "19 Doin' 20" and "Eventually." The song "Bar Fly" finds the perfect mix of country-pop lyrics with Jeter's vocals and the band's sound. The album ends with the southern swamp, country-blues flavored "Voodoo Woman." A great fit for Jeter's vocal style while the band play their hearts out.

Jonathan Jeter & The Revelators have a load of dates in the Texas area running until the end of the year. To hear more from this band, be sure to check out their website at jonathanjetermusic.com.
