Rhythm X Revival are an energetic new rocking country blues band formed by John-Luke Shelley together with Johnny Tesoriero. The two musicians have collaborated and each written songs for a new album which they have just recorded through The Teskey Brothers' Studio.
The band was runner-up at the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society’s Blues Performer of the Year in 2016 as JLS & Co (now renamed Rhythm X Revival).
..this an album that does something for you and something to you. In a live setting at one point I would probably shed a tear. Magnificent just doesn't seem to cover it and if I would give a higher mark I would. Outstanding...' 10/10

'Back To The World' is another of Meares’ mini-masterpieces. The 10-minute closer, An Old Dog And A Shotgun, would be worth your time alone, would be the album standout, the reason to come here to hear this but there’s not a single dud track. Once again he’s taken time to create something ‘whole’, a piece, an album that could, in another setting, stand up as film or book, a graphic novel, a macabre ballet.
