From the heart of the midwest, The Blackbird Revue's worn, comfortable, americana sound is beginning to garner national attention. Featured on NBC'sThe Voice, and boasting one of Kansas City's top ten albums of 2013 (Ink Magazine), this husband and wife duo has created a sound that is achingly beautiful, hauntingly memorable, and passionately performed.

Many are taking notice.

They were selected as a national finalist for the Bud Light Battle of the Bands 2012, invited to participate in the Chevy Music Showcase for Kansas City, and nominated two years running as the best Americana band in Kansas City by The Pitch Magazine. 

While sharing the stage with such artists as Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Kopecky Family Band, Gregory Alan Isakov, Over the Rhine, and Hey Marseilles, The Blackbird Revue has performed at numerous venues across the midwest, including the South By Southwest Festival in Austin, TX, and Kansas City's Middle of the Map Fest.      

Here's what others are saying:

"Listening to Danielle and Jacob work together, harmonize together, and just be together, you realize that they have … something … indefinable, yet unmistakable. This isn’t just a musical duo, and this isn’t just a married couple. This is a union of two spirits and souls that complement each other perfectly as no other could. The underlying intensity and obvious passion shine brightly." - The Deli Magazine

"Their sound is lovely, all melodic and well-crafted, midtempo and melancholic. And their harmonies can be deadly." - Ink Magazine

"Weaving the intimate presence and sweetly weathered vocal blend of The Civil Wars together with a penchant for creating delicately driving indie-rock textures, Kansas City outfit The Blackbird Revue really has achieved something special in a short amount of time. Fronted by husband-wife duo Jacob and Danielle Prestidge, the group has crafted a sound that manages to be ethereal and earthy all at once, swirling and magnetic yet immediate and relevant. Catch the group in a snug setting while you still can." - The Columbia Tribune
