"My Future Baby and Me"
“My Future Baby and Me” radiates with a delightful jazz pop sound that bursts with life. From the moment the song begins, you’re greeted with a joyful ensemble of instruments; the rhythmic drums, the walking bass lines, warm keyboard tones, bright brass, soulful saxophone and lush backing vocals. These elements all blend to create a timeless composition tailored for modern ears. Giovany Revelle’s vocals are a highlight, exuding a smooth, inviting quality. He effortlessly delivers catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrics that convey the anticipation and optimism of a life yet to be lived.

"Chicago-based Revelle has impressed us every step of the way so far, and this track is the last single to be released before his debut album (which came out yesterday). We strongly urge our readers to go take a listen to his entire body of work. The consistency and quality that we’ve heard so far from Giovany is astonishing for a debut album, and we simply cannot wait to hear that his music is being heard by a wider audience.
This track reminded us very much of the great Jools Holland Orchestra, with a few touches of Brian Setzer thrown in for good measure. Revelle’s vocals are a real joy to listen – you can always hear him smiling as he sings, and it is just charming. My Future Baby and Me is such a positive and enriching track."

Giovany Revelle enchants you with his dynamic swing and delectable groove on his latest track “Believe In”. This song is largely driven by its jazzy soundscape and is full of instrumentation that is heavy on brass and steady in its tempo. Giovany’s singing is expressive and incredibly laminar in its flow leading to an infectious vibe that keeps you hooked on this song's delicious melodies. This is a song that also stays in motion without a second reprieve from its constant motion of sounds and motifs that result in an auditory experience that is engaging from top to bottom. I loved listening to this track and so will you!
"The Chicago resident returns with yet another charming release, ‘Believe In’. The record shuffles the sonic and stylistic picture quite a lot, shifting into Soulful Pop territories with a touch of Americana and Folk.
Built on a tapestry of elegant drums and tight organ chords, ‘Believe In’ flourishes further thanks to the addition of a stunning horn section, augmenting the retro charge already contained in the song. Revelle’s vocals feel lighter this time, sharing an overwhelming feeling of hopefulness and excitement, perhaps with a veiled sense of nostalgia thrown into the mix."
"Believe In has a very relaxed summer holiday feel to it. The general vibe of the track reminded us of Jack Johnson. Giovany seems to have reinvented himself with each new single from this album, displaying his wide-ranging influences from Big Band through Jazz and Soul and Latin. The defining theme throughout every track we’ve heard from Revelle is the happiness in his vocals. He is clearly loving what he does and, like Louis Armstrong, you can hear him grinning through the mic. His positivity is infectious."
"Time" music video out now!
"‘Time’ is feel-good music at its very best. Fans of Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel and KC and the Sunshine Band will be up and dancing around the room before the first couple of bars are over. Reminiscent in places of ‘Tell Her About It’ or “Walking on Sunshine’, this is a song which just oozes confidence and positivity."
"I suggest everyone to listen to Time in the morning before starting a hard day at work…you will enjoy an incredible energy booster.
I was very impressed by Giovany Revelle’s compositional skills. The chord progression is never obvious and banal and manages to entertain the listener from the first to the last second. The musical arrangements are refined and of great quality.
The lyrics are deep and interesting, and you feel that this artist has a message to spread… his vision knows no bounds and I think his music is therapeutic in such a difficult time for the world. An artist that I would recommend to everyone as he produces quality music."

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.
