Stompin' Good Worship
Posted October 22, 2012

Brand new act StompTown Revival consists of Americana blues duo Brandon Bee and Gabe Martinez (Circleside frontman). With plenty of soul and a love for a new brand of music they refer to as "spiritual stomp," this duo is creating a sound not found in Christian music today. With the release of their StompTown Revival EP, listeners are introduced to the unique southern stylings of what is hopefully only the beginning of this duo's long stay in the industry.
 
Debut single "Guiding Me Home" starts things off with rhythmic guitar plucks, but soon electric guitars and kick drum beats enter, giving the song more of a southern rock feel. As Bee and Martinez's harmonies sing the chorus, "You are the reason / Our souls carry on / Beyond this brief life / Through every season / Your beacon of love / Shines in the dark / You're guiding me home," listeners have the urge to clap along and stomp their feet. Reminiscent of a Southern rock, bluesy version of Shane & Shane, it's clear this duo has soul, in more ways than one.
 
As harmonica takes a prevalent place in "The Sun Will Find A Way," Bon Jovi-esque vocals ring out as they're joined by hard drum beats and echoing electric guitars. The song's hopeful chorus repeats, "And You roll the clouds away / And Your love is like the glorious day / Though there's pain / Oh the sun, the sun will find a way." Reminding listeners that God can make a way even in the darkest of times, these lyrics provide hope when it's hard to find.
 
Closing Thoughts:
With harmonica, slide guitars, kick drums, and the gritty southern vocals of Brandon Bee and Gabe Martinez, every track on StompTown Revival's EP oozes with authenticity and soul. With five original songs and a bluesy cover of "Leaning On The Everlasting Arms," this brand new duo sets the stage for what is hopefully many years of making "spiritual stomp" a well-loved genre in the Christian music world.
