Los Angeles band headed to the Recovery Lounge
UPPER JAY — Based in Los Angeles, California, The String Revolution is comprised of four professional guitar players who are virtuosos and create distinctive sounds with their guitars: mimicking percussion, special effects, melodic grooves, bass lines and more.
They share a passion for many different musical styles and guitar techniques, which has given The String Revolution a unique sound.
The band includes former Randy Rhoads student Janet Robin (recently named “Top 50 Acoustic Guitarist” by Guitar Player Magazine, 2017), who is also an acclaimed touring guitarist with the likes of Lindsey Buckingham, Meredith Brooks and Air Supply; award winning Austrian nylon-string guitarist Markus Illko; Swiss multi-credited producer, songwriter and guitarist Daniel Schwarz; and underground LA indie artist/guitarist Art Zavala Jr.
They released their first EP “Stringborn” in 2016, and their newest CD, “Red Drops,” is set for release this year. The String Revolution’s cover version of “Billie Jean” reached the Top 10 Spotify LA Instrumental Charts and has over 300,000 plays. “Stringborn” was also included on the 2017 Grammy Entry Ballot.
The band has been selling out local LA and California regional music clubs, house concerts and festivals including The Hotel Cafe, The Mint, Genghis Cohen, Laguna Beach Arts Festival and NAMM Headquarters, and will soon embark on international touring. Their shows include original compositions as well as memorable covers arranged in fresh and surprising ways that utilize their expert guitar skills.
