Houston-based rock band Folk Family Revival made a visit to Austin on Friday, June 7, at the legendary Austin dive Sam’s Town Point. Teaming up with independent record label Splice Records, the band celebrated the release of their newest album “Electric Darlin’,” which had released that same day.
Made up of brothers Mason (vocals and guitar), Barrett (bass) and Lincoln Lankford (drums and percussion) and family friend Caleb Pace (electric guitar, mandolin and lap steel), Folk Family Revival is a band known to bend genres, from Americana to folk, rock to bluegrass. Their new record was produced by John Evans and recorded by Patrick Herzfeld just outside of Austin at Signal Hill Recording Studio in Dripping Springs, Texas.
The night kicked off with rockabilly/Americana artist John Evans, who hopped on stage and joined the brothers throughout their set as well. It was an evening full of energetic jam sessions, dancing and music in its purest form. Sam’s was packed full of fans from near and far, evidence that this talented foursome has created a devoted following of their own. After seeing them perform live for the first time, I wasn’t the slightest bit surprised.
The four brought an incredible energy to the venue, pouring their hearts and souls through their lyrics, melodies and riffs. The most beautiful thing about their music? It creates community. Folk Family Revival is a band that brings people together through their dynamic, catchy tunes. Take a listen yourself. I promise you’ll fall in love.
