Delta blues and hillbilly fervor combine with musical acuity sharp as razor wire… You’d best know… this trio is a force to be reckoned with! The growl of a good truck engine, the fiercest passion for country, home, and family, and an uncanny ability to breathe new life into old forms of music give them a pedigree many Americana acts would kill for. An ironclad work ethic keeps them on the road 250 dates a year. The Rev. J. Peyton, his wife Breezy and distant cousin Aaron "Cuz" Persinger are a living, breathing embodiment of the traditions native to their Brown County, Indiana home. Their brand new third album fromSideOneDummy Records, Between The Ditches, is a chronicle of this lifestyle. Recorded at White Arc Studio in Bloomington, Indiana, the album was produced by The Rev. Peyton and Paul Mahern (John Mellencamp, Iggy Pop). Between The Ditches features a new level of craftsmanship in both recording technique and songwriting. The Rev. feels that it's their best album to date.
