How to describe Dustbowl Revival? As good a place to start is probably right at their beginning when Chicago native Z. Lupetin moved to LA to be a playwright and screenwriter, grew disillusioned with his job in advertising and placed an ad on Craigslist seeking musicians who shared his love of Louis Armstrong, Bob Wills, Old Crow Medicine Show, Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin and the brass bands of New Orleans, but also wanted to write songs in the vein of Americana pioneers such as Wilco, Lucinda Williams and Bruce Springsteen.
That was in 2007, and through perseverance the band have now had appearances across the globe, and for the last ten years have worked a 200 shows a year schedule. They’ve just released an album ‘Is it you, is it Me‘ from which the Indie-folk meets brass section stylings of ‘Runaway‘ is taken.
