Welcome to What I Like, our weekly chat with local musicians about their favorite things.

This week: the Blackbird Revue

The Blackbird Revue plays country-inspired ballads and adrenaline-ridden, soaring anthems fueled by ear-catching harmonies. The band is currently writing new material but won't start recording for a while. Stop by one of the Revue's shows, though, and you'll most likely catch a new tune. Buy the band's album, The Whaler & Other Stories, on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby or straight from the band.
