aaron carpenter & the revelators
Aaron Carpenter has a gift for articulating the plight of the downtrodden and misunderstood. A knack for stepping inside his fellow man’s boots and feeling the wear on the sole, the caked dirt between the treads, and the permanent awkwardness of the fit.
This insight keeps listeners riveted throughout as The Revelators report back on the lot of small-town lifers, neglected love veterans, and the invisible homeless, with both sympathy and a burning curiosity.
By his own admission, the Waiheke Island based songwriter turns more inward and that translate to blues and country music, music he credits as “the commonest of human experience, perhaps the only thing that we all truly share.”
His Revelators are none other than a veteran gaggle of hotshot musicians including none other than Glenn Campbell Ross, (The Misunderstood, Juicy Lucy fame).
In the latter half of 2015, Aaron Carpenter & those Revelators of his will release their debut E.P., it's first single and accompanying video "Stranger" to be tested October 1st. It's a classic collection of songs he's taken his whole life to write and its release will be a stroke of genuine relief.
As he champions in one of the country/rock songs from the release - "Forgiving yourself is the hardest thing"....
That it is.
