The Revelations featuring Tre' Williams at World Cafe Live

The Revelations featuring Tre' Williams join us for XPN Free at Noon at World Cafe Live.
A co-production of WXPN and NPR Music.

The Revelations featuring Tre' Williams The Revelations' members, featuring singer Tre Williams, revive '60s and '70s soul, yet there's a modern quality to their sound that suggests they're not bound to the confines of a jukebox. Their debut record, Deep Soul, blends images of the bluesy South with the gritty streets of a bustling city into one contemporary view of life.

The raw-voiced Williams brings to mind a modern-day Otis Redding. With a background in church choirs and R&B, he's developed an impressive four-octave range that's lent itself to tracks by Nas and Petey Pablo. The sextet's mixture of soul, funk and hip-hop on Deep Soul creates a fusion of old standards with fresh ideas.
