Biography

Country girl meets city girl; folk meets urban. Andrea Revel’s second LP Citysong “marries her folk-roots side with light electronic beats and atmospherics, for a moody and often intoxicating disc” (Calgary Sun). Described as “Morcheeba goes to Nashville”, this collection of bedroom tapes is “introspective without being indulgent and sophisticated without being standoffish” (Montreal Gazette), creating a sexy and sometimes melancholic late night listen.

Often described as a rogue-folkie for crossing over into the electronic realm, Revel’s sound has been a natural evolution for a musician transplanted from Calgary’s hotbed of folk to the urban soundscapes of Montreal. On this LP Revel collaborates with sound designer and electronic producer Michael McCann (FUBAR, It’s All Gone Pete Tong and Splinter Cell IV). Revel has opened for Andy Stochansky, Lindy, Jorane, Jeremy Fisher, David Francey and Rae Spoon. Wetlabel describes her live as “…absolutely incredible. Her writing is fresh, her voice angelic and her guitar playing is simply out of this world.”.

Citysong was licensed to Difference Music in Portugal and made its European debut in 2006. The album has broken top ten on several college and radio stations in Canada and the US; CKUA ranked it among the top 3 Albertan CDs (Fall 2004). Revel’s music has been featured in Old Navy and Target TV commercials (check out www.myspace.com/andrearevel to view them) and is in the television series This is Wonderland, Re-genesis, Zoe Busiek; Wild Card, 1-800-Missing, the Montreal films L’Enigme de James Brighton and What is Indie? and the video game Splinter Cell IV: Double Agent.
