South City Revival is a taste of what one of the hardest working and most talented bands in Chicago is capable of and while it is a relief to finally be able to hear these songs at home - you need to see South City Revival play live.

Musicians Joe Pacelli (vocals, guitar), John Quinn (guitar), Mike Fitzgerald (bass), Jose Perez (drums), and Brendan Linnane (pedal steel) met in the parking lot of a Western avenue bar and decided they wanted to write songs like Townes Van Zandt and play shows like Bruce Springsteen. They asked each other “what does Chicago country sound like?”—a question that has shaped the sound and aesthetic of South City Revival since its formation.

in the spring of 2017, the band teamed up with local music great Mike Hagler IN CHICAGO to record their self-titled, debut EP. The release features a captivating blend of story driven songwriting and high energy studio performances, which combine to form a unique and original roots-country sound. 


The EP “South City Revival” is short, 21 minutes, but every second is a must, every note, every word sung is sensational... the band’s sound is a blend of Country and Roots Rock from the best I’ve heard.
