Here's a new August 2012 interview with Reverend Peyton, lead vocalist/guitarist of Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band. Rev, along with band members Breezy (rev's wife and washboard player/backing vocalist) and drummer/cousin Aaron Persinger, have just released a new record called "Between The Ditches," already generating buzz as a "career" type album. The Rev talks in detail here about the writing, recording, and objectives of this album - specifically wanting to make "a record, not just a recording." The roots power trio approached this record a little differently, paying attention to all the little sonic nuances, Rev says "right down to the hi-hat sound." He uses a variety of vintage guitars also (like a 1929 Gibson Flattop F2 and 1930's nationals), demonstrating his unique ability to replicate Delta blues players like Robert Johnson, Son House, and Charlie Patton with his fingerstyle approach to picking. Rev also talks about the band's fan base, steady rise to success, band chemistry, and incredible work ethic.Congrats to the band, as shortly after this interview, the new record debuted as the #1 blues release on iTunes - a strong Billboard Top 200 chart debut also followed.
