"At times, if you listen to the lyrics closely, beyond the seemingly upbeat tone of the album, you’ll hear a man on the brink of an existential crisis. What is the meaning of the world, if any? How can we cut the noise and get to the true meaning of life? Between the feel-good dance songs, the slow-rendering ballads, and the kaleidoscope of musical instruments, we hear Borgo finding the answer to these questions, and we’re lucky enough to come along for this musical ride."
A veteran band before their first performance, members of the group have performed at South by Southwest, Red Rocks Amphitheater, Denver’s Underground Music Showcase, Hi Dive, Lion's Lair, The Gothic, and several Denver basements. Although the band’s sound is firmly rooted in traditional soul music, Leon and the Revival infuse their songs with modern touches: driving guitar and keyboard work and melodic, effects-laden basslines.
Frontman Paul Leon Ramsey describes his inspiration for the Revival's live shows: "When I was a kid, my dad's cousin told me that when my dad was a teenager, he used to sneak out of the house on Friday nights to sing at the juke joint on the outskirts of town. As he told me the story, I watched my father blush (for the first and only time). That secret still ignites my imagination. Our shows are an interpretation of what the juke joint out on the country roads of Sherman, Texas might have been; the image of folks dancing and giving themselves over to the music just enough to make them blush and grin decades later."
