Elephant Revival Releases 'It's Alive' EP & Illustrated Songbook

Just in time for their fall tour, Ruff Shod/Nettwork recording artists Elephant Revival are releasing IT’S ALIVE, a seven-song EP, plus an illustrated hardcover songbook containing lyrics from the Colorado quintet’s first two albums and the EP. It also contains a bonus digital-download card for three songs not included on IT’S ALIVE. The EP and full-color book, which also features chord charts, notations and arrangements — with artwork by every band member — may be purchased at shows or on the band’s website.

Produced by Sally Van Meter and recorded at Immersive Studios in Boulder, Colo., the EP contains seven tracks mastered by Gus Skinas at Sonoma Mastering. They are: “What’s That?” “Quill Pen Feather,” “Wakes Only Daughter,”  “Tam Lin Set,” “To and From,” “Part of a Song” and “Don’t Drift Too Far.” The download card accesses “Raven Song,” “Caribou Mountain” and “Novel of New.”

Elephant Revival are: Bonnie Paine (vocals, washboard, djembe and musical saw); Sage Cook (electric banjo/guitar, acoustic guitar, mandolin, viola and vocals); Dango Rose (double-bass, mandolin, banjo and vocals); Daniel Rodriguez (acoustic guitar, electric banjo/guitar and vocals;) and Bridget Law (fiddle and vocals). Their tour launches Sept. 20 at Vail, Colo.’s Gerald Ford Amphitheater, and finishes with four nights of intimate performances at favorite Denver-area venues.
