The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band
The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band
The Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band bridges genres and eras with an intensity and effortlessness few contemporary artists possess. And their latest album So Delicious elevates the trio's work to a new level. Produced by Rev. Peyton, So Delicious, offers the band's most diverse collection of songs buoyed by the Rev.'s supercharged six-string virtuosity β€” a unique style of fingerpicking inspired by his Delta blues heroes, but taken to new, original heights.

The fifth full-length original album by the group β€” which includes Breezy Peyton on washboard and supporting vocals and Ben Bussell on drums and supporting vocals β€”is their debut on Yazoo Records, a label known for the historic reissues of blues and
other old time American music that are the bedrock inspiration for the Rev.'s soundand approach.

"Yazoo was my favorite record label growing up," he explains. "For fans of old country blues and all manner of early American music, they are the quintessential label. And for me, it's like being on the same label as Charley Patton and 'Mississippi'

John Hurt. To think that Yazoo believes we are authentic enough to stand with the other people in their catalog means a lot."

The Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band has always been strong on authenticity, playing music that blends blues, ragtime, folk, country and other traditional styles with the sleek modern energy of do-it- yourself, homespun, punk fueled rock. And performing tunes plucked from their lives, their community or from the canonical songbook that fed the Rev. Peyton's formative creative identity. It's a mix that's allowed the band to win fans from all corners of the Americana and rock worlds, and bring a new generation to blues and other forms of American roots music.
