The Reverend Shawn Amos & The BrotherHood is a deep roots collaboration between the acclaimed blues singer-songwriter and harmonica player and some old friends: drummer Brady Blade (Indigo Girls, Buddy and Julie Miller), bassist Christopher Thomas (Norah Jones, Macy Gray) and longtime Rev guitarist Chris "Doctor" Roberts.
Their debut album, Blue Sky (available April 17, 2020) comes on he heels of The Rev’s 2018 acclaimed, politically charged Breaks it Down. 2019 saw him alighting in Texas, where the South begins, the West ends, and something else is taking shape – a world away, geographically and culturally, from his native LA. Here, he gathered together the Brotherhood, creating a sense of home in his rootlessness. Blade, Thomas, and Roberts provide not only musical, but also spiritual and emotional support for embracing new territory, artistically and otherwise.
