About Main Street Revival
A Roots-Rock band with a rounded and diverse sound that relies on melodic hooks with instrumentation and brass. Their lyrical influences are deeply rooted in storytelling and weave in surrealistic imagery with soulful narrative. Their music and art are reflective of the highways, back roads and working towns across the country.
Formed in 2018, Main Street Revival is the culmination of three veteran songwriters: Alan Charlton, Doug Wallace & Erik Hertzberg. Longtime friends, they grew up with similar influences (The Band, Bruce Springsteen) and continue to share and experience new music (Dr. Dog, Arkells). “Night Rider” came out in February 2019 which kicked off a set of five singles that were released throughout the year culminating in their debut album release in November.
Surrounded by musicians from their community; members of the band have been driving forces in various Ottawa acts including: Suns of Stone, Fog Eye, Cold Capital, The Wicked Mercy and Wise, Young & King.
'What I've heard so far really showcases the band's dynamic sound and wide appeal! If you're a fan of Nathaniel Rateliff, Tom Petty, or having a bevvy by the campfire, you'll love these guys!'
