Giovany Revelle is a first-generation singer-songwriter and producer child of immigrants born in Corpus Christi. His roots, however, are firmly grounded in Chicago where he’s lived for over three decades. It’s where he’s become a seasoned musician. Growing up he traveled frequently to Mexico exposing him to different genres of music and soon began writing songs inspired by his experiences. After High School, Revelle focused on writing songs about immigrant rights and acting as Musical Director for his church. He has played bass, drums for other local Chicago acts, and most notably produced Rosalba Valdez’s EP, “Yo Soy Mexicana.”
In 2017, after the sudden loss of his father, who supported and believed in his music, he decided to focus on his original music, searching for musicians to record with. He was fortunate to find Roy McGrath, who co-produced Revelle’s debut album. In late 2020, after a severe car accident that served as a catalyst, he was committed to finishing his album that had already seen setbacks due to the pandemic. He recorded 11 songs in his home studio to build them, recruiting musicians and backup singers who would help deliver his soul-driven music with nods to his roots and influences. The result is a full sonic voyage rooted in nostalgia that uses modern production to showcase Revelle’s penchant for writing catchy and timeless tunes.
Giovany Revelle's eponymous upcoming debut album was recorded over the course of a year with some of Chicago’s top musicians at Rax Trax Studios, one the city's top tier studios. It took years of planning and over 21 musicians to bring his vision to life. Between charting horns, developing string arrangements, extensive rehearsals with rhythm section and backup singers to plan out harmonies, this was the most fulfilling producing role Giovany has had for his self-financed debut album that soon will charm and delight listeners.
