ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kim and Jason met in Atlanta, GA during the mid 90's. She was a veteran performer in musical theatre and he was a drummer playing with various groups in the local blues, folk, and jam-band scene. They both ended up in the same band (Kim as a doo-wop girl, Jason on drums) and started hanging out between gigs playing guitars and singing Neil Young tunes. Inspired by the pure sound of their harmonies and frustrated with hectic city life, they decided to abandon their current directions and head to the Pacific Northwest to try something new. They performed as an acoustic duo in the coffee shops and bars of Port Angeles, WA as "Tongue and Groove" and were an immediate hit. T&G eventually added several other members, went electric and evolved into one of the Olympic Peninsula's favorite bands, releasing three CD's and playing everything from late-night Dead-esque jams in local bars to the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle.

Over the course of five years, T&G's gig schedule became too busy for some of the members working full-time jobs and the band's momentum quickly waned. With the confidence and experience gained from fronting a successful band and hungry to keep performing, Kim and Jason returned to their acoustic roots...

From his interest in the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia in particular, Jason was led to the pure, rustic sounds of old-time music and claw-hammer style banjo while Kim explored bass and old country-style rhythm guitar. With the discovery of contemporary old-time influenced artists like Gillian Welch, Old Crow Medicine Show, Be Good Tanyas, and The Reeltime Travelers, Kim and Jason were inspired in a new direction and Deadwood Revival was born.

Described as "pure, honest, passionate, and refreshing" DwR's performances sound much fuller than one would expect from a duo and include foot-stomping hoe-downs... imaginative, cleverly arranged covers... and original tunes that embody Kim and Jason's impeccable vocal blend and old-time simplicity wedded to their undeniable influences nurtured by 20th century American radio.

album deserves a wide audience
Deadwood Revival

Fans of old-time bluegrass will be in for quite a treat if they pick up a copy of the new self-titled debut of Deadwood Revival. Deadwood Revival consists of the husband and wife team of Jason Mogi and Kim Trenerry. Living and gigging in the Pacific Northwest, the duo formerly fronted the jam band Tongue and Groove. These multi-instrumentalists have crafted a fine all acoustic album that hearkens back to 1930s Appalachia.

Consisting of ten original and three traditional tunes, Kim and Jason create an old time country atmosphere through tight vocal harmonies, banjo, acoustic guitars, harmonica, bass, various percussion and some guests on mandolin, trombone, dobro and even spoons and washboard. The arrangements are at times forceful and driving and at other times laid back and mellow. Jason Mogi is one fine player when it comes to clawhammer banjo, as highlighted on the traditional “Darlin’ Corey” and instrumental “Old Mother Logo.”

The album opens with a call to put on your “traveling shoes” on “Passenger Side.” The harmonies ask the listener to get “down to the country” and implore us that it is a “fine day for a ride.” Travel seems to be a theme on other tunes as well. “Cover My Tracks” is a leaving song and “Daisy” laments a VW van rusting away on its last days, somewhat reminiscent of Neil Young’s “Long May You Run.”

Another theme seems to be weather. On “Old Wind Blowin” Kim Trenerry takes the lead vocals to the accompaniment of some tasty mandolin by guest Eric Prust. The upbeat Mogi song “Good Day Sunshine” is contrasted later on the Trenerry penned “Rainy Day Blues.”

The standout track on the album is “Southland.” Written and sung by Trenerry, “Southland” yearns for the “warm winds” and “red Georgia clay.” In the sleepy South, dogwoods are in bloom and Georgia is always on her mind. Anyone who has lived and longed for the “Southland” can identify. In the hands of a country music superstar, like say Alison Krauss, this song could be a number one hit.

All in all, Deadwood Revival is one fine debut and the self-produced album deserves a wide audience. After my first listening, I was moved to unplug my electric guitar and dust off my old Martin for the pure acoustic inspiration of Kim and Jason’s debut.

dwr ROCKS!
we just bought their 2 CD's and cannot stop from playing them - we love them so much that we have booked them for our upcoming wedding this summer! Great voices, harmony, and lyrics!

Amazingly pure sound, every track a feast for the ears and soul!
After seeing DwR once in Port Angeles, we purchased the CD and were amazed at the pure, fresh sound of these two incredible young artists. Each track is total joy, taking you to places you never want to come back from. The level of this duo's talent is almost unbelievable. I hope they're around for a very long time.

This is a fine CD to brighten your day !
CD Review: Deadwood Revival This duo of Jason Mogi and Kim Trenerry played at the Beanery recently and I was quite taken with Jason’s imaginative and clean claw hammer style banjo combined with Kim’s guitar and nice vocal harmony. I bought a CD and have enjoyed the happy, energetic sound they accomplish with their music. Compared to the live performance, the CD has more variety and some extra musicians. My favorite cut is Old Mother Logo, a traditional tune that spotlights Jason’s marvelous claw hammer banjo style. They have some fun old timey numbers too with lively instrumentation and tight vocal harmony: Cover My Tracks, Old Wind Blowin’, Darlin’ Corey. Some cuts like Good Day Sunshine (with trombone) Daisy, and Tempie remind me of good old jug bands. Other cuts like Passenger Side are a more contemporary sound with pleasing vocal and Jason’s tinkly banjo making you want to tap your toes. This is a fine CD to brighten your day.

Wow!
We were impressed by Deadwood Revival- so much so that we're off to hear them live. Their music is honest, light hearted, and a joy to listen to.

Buy this CD. You won't regret it! I love it so much I'm buying another one!
This is my favorite CD ever. Just having it on can transport you to a happy, energetic and productive place. Rarely have I found a collection of songs which all resonate so deeply with real life. Bravo!
