Originally from England and Ireland, Ben Jones and Andrea Magee of Beat Root Revival came to America four years ago as two solo acts. But after audiences noticed the onstage chemistry they had when playing together, the formation of the duo was inevitable. Now the Europeans have made Austin, Texas their new home in search of sharing their music far and wide. Blending their smooth harmonies with elements of folk, blues, country, and rock n’roll has earned them a loyal fanbase here in Austin, and the release of their latest album, Up, will surely bring more fans into their corner.
The duo talked about their latest album with host Jeff McCord ahead of their album release show at the 04 Center October 18th. Check out the live performance below!
