Introducing... Revelstoke

Toronto's Andrew Seale (more recently known as indie folk act Revelstoke) released his debut EP titled Espirit d'Escalier on July 5th, 2011. The EP is up for free download to the public, exclusively on his Bandcamp page. Self-written, recorded, produced, and mixed Seale proves himself single handedly capable of driving this musical enterprise.
Revelstoke has since been gaining attention within the local scene from his unique one-man show. The combination of guitar (often played with a violin bow) and banjo create songs much bigger than the venues themselves. His compelling live performances have brought him to stages opening for Appleseed Cast, Brett Caswell, and more. Inspired by the eclectic nature of artists like Sufjan Stevens and Bon Iver, Seale captures sincere and honest moments with his music. You can't help but come back for more.
Seale recently caught the attention of the Revelstoke Times Review because of his moniker and in a show review the Toronto Social Review scribed, "Exceeding expectations...[Revelstoke] makes raw, beautiful joy with a killer vocal range. He also engages in looping, which is eternally fascinating when done live. Just so you know, we saw him first, we told you so.
Revelstoke will be performing twice at this year's North by Northeast Festival in Toronto. Once on Wednesday, June 15th at the Central upstairs patio and the second on Sunday, June 19th as part of the Live in Bellwoods Series.
