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 Washington, DC from the likes of Bobby Parker. He honed his craft as a sought-after support man, touring the country with Junior Marvin as well as SOJA and several others. Thompson then 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 DC 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 and vocals), Gary Crockett (drums and 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.
