Revelator Hill
Revelator Hill
Revelator Hill is Fronted by the Awe-inspiring master guitarist and vocalist Bobby Thompson who is no stranger to the blues and rock world. He cut his teeth learning to play in the old blues clubs of D.C. from the likes of Bobby Parker. After honing his craft as a much sought after support man touring the country with Junior Marvin as well as SOJA and several others.Thompson decided to step out as a solo artist, releasing three albums since 2011. A recent review from Roots Music Report claims;
"Thompson’s songs portray "muscular blues- and soul-rock strong on soulful vocals and cut-above-the-norm originals."

With his smooth, gripping vocal stylings and his perfect musical taste on anything with a string, Thompson is what’s referred to as a “musician’s musician. Considered a “must see” act of the Northeast/Mid Atlantic region, Bobby was nominated for the D.C area Musician of the Year award in 2015.

Revelator Hill is his latest collaboration with some of the finest rock and blues musicians in the Washington DC area, including Seth Morrissey (bass & vocals), Gary Crockett (drums & vocals), Wes Lanich (keyboards), and sometimes special guest member Ron Holloway (saxophone). This group is wrought with deep emotion and blazes down the path pioneered by the great Jimi Hendrix, blending deeply-rooted blues traditions with a popular rock edge to create a sound that will stir every soul.

Their sound has been described as a mix between The North Mississippi Allstars, Ben Harper, Gov't Mule, Traffic,Eric Clapton,The Black Crowes, while still sounding original. They have been steadily growing their fan base up and down the east coast and Canada and are quickly becoming one of the hot bands to see in many markets.

The band released their new album "Atlantic Detour" on Root 9
Records on March 7 2017 to rave reviews from critics and fans alike. They are currently out on a full spring and summer tour in support of the album
that will take them all over the East Coast and Midwest as well as
stops in Canada. And will be headed back out on the road again in early Fall.

The band has toured extensively up and down the East Coast as well
the Mid-Atlantic,Mid-West and Canada where they are headed back on the summer leg of this tour for a feature set at The Montreal Jazz Fest in July.
