Rhythm X Revival

Rhythm X Revival is an energetic rockin’ country blues band formed through songwriting and the friendship of duo John-Luke Shelley and Johnny Tesoriero. April saw the release of their nine-track debut self-titled album recorded at The Teskey Brothers’ studio by Sam Teskey, with Ben Wicks on bass guitar. 
John-Luke and Johnny have been reincarnated as Rhythm X Revival from their previous bands JLS & Co, High Speed Steel and The Three Tones. They have performed in festivals around Australia including the Broadbeach Blues Festival, the Queenscliff Music Festival, Bendigo Blues Festival, Echuca Blues Festival, Wangaratta Jazz Festival and Guitars across the Bay.  
Featuring John-Luke as the lead singer and on lead and rhythm guitar, Johnny Tesoriero on drums, Chris Rourke on bass and Jeremy Neumann on keyboard, Rhythm X Revival has soulful tones of country and blues with modern melodies, catchy lyrics and captivating vocals. 
‘This fast-paced electric-drenched blues, is fun-filled, energy-packed and keeps you guessing’ as quoted in The Rockpit. 
‘If there was a simple way to explain the album to any Country or Blues fan, you would say that Rhythm X Revival is purely the reincarnation of the deep, old school Tennessee sounds we all know and enjoy’, as quoted in Amnplify.
