Biography

In the summer of 2010, the Los Angeles based band Revoltaire was formed. The group consists of Ruby Stewart (vocals), Jason Yates (guitar,keys), Chris Cano (drums) and Shawn Davis (bass). Introduced by a mutual friend, Ruby and Jason met for the very first time at Jason’s loft in downtown. Bonding over their shared love of the blues, and all things music, the two spent the next few weeks getting to know each other’s musical sensibilities.

Over a whiskey at the Short Stop bar nearby, they dreamed about forming a band together, a real band. Soon after they were privileged enough to be joined by Chris Cano and Shawn Davis, two Angelenos, who are veterans in LA’s underground music scene. Revoltaire was quickly becoming a reality.

What naturally formed was a blend of Rock N Roll and gritty American Roots music. The chemistry within the group was combustive from the very beginning. Ruby had an uncanny ability to keep up vocally with the rest of the band. They jammed for hours on end. Exploring and experimenting for the next few months, these extended jams resulted into hours of potential song ideas. Often these improvisations were well over 30 minutes long. It was this creative process that soon defined the group’s sound. In an effort to get back what has seemingly been lost in today’s climate of the solo artist, manufactured groups, and computer generated music, Revoltaire took the long road to acquire that true band sound.
