Revel in Romance • Zach Pietrini Band

Revel in Romance

(Atlanta, GA )

With a blitz of tight, rhythmic instrumentation, wall-of-sound punk allusions, and ethereal, 3-dimensional synths, Revel in Romance, (a 5-piece Alt. Pop Rock Band out of Atlanta, GA.), has achieved a soundscape as in-depth as it is relatable. Their lead vocalist, Saxony Raine, is the 2016 GA Music Awards Winner - Best Female Rock Artist. They have been featured at several prominent festivals and conferences across the U.S. including Warped Tour, SXSW, Summerfest and Sweetwater 420. They've been an Atlanta Braves Band of the Year, were recently filmed for Mississippi's PBS special series "Amped & Wired" and Massachusetts' "LIVE FROM CENTER STAGE" and have won a Balcony TV Global Peoples Choice Award. Revel in Romance's Debut EP "Right and Wrong" released June 2016 has had 2 songs reach number one on radio stations in the U.S. and England and their debut " ECHOES" music video is currently airing on MUCH TV channels and MUSIC PLUS TV channels across Canada.

Cutting their teeth on themes of passion, pain, love, and sex, Revel In Romance's debut EP, "Right and Wrong", (produced by Mama Jan Smith, Shawn Grove, and Jesse Owen Astin), themes itself around being both the hero and the antagonist, being the heart-breaker and the heart-broken, being young, being loud, and being self-aware of it all. Featured on the EP is subwoofer-crushing "Echoes", young and reckless pop anthem "Summer Nights" and their poetically moody "Dust" tracks.

Revel in Romance began with a Grammy Prize, when the original members; Saxony, Devin and Parker released an acoustic EP entitled “Stripped” and were featured with a double page spread in Eide Magazine. Performance highlights for the trio included: Opening for the Band Perry, Six Flags over Ga, and landing a featured performer slot for the 2014 Atlanta New Year's Eve Peachdrop. Though successful, acoustic wasn't the trio's vision. Shortly after the release of "Stripped" the band added their drummer, Mark, (who'd previously played such acts as The Jonas Brothers, Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney). Then, with a vigorous audition process, added bassist, Remington, to make Revel in Romance complete.

Their first weekend together as a full band, began with a live performance of their song “Little Love” on Balcony TV. The resulting video went to #1 in the World on the Balcony TV Global Charts (the same charts as Mumford & Sons, Foxes, Edward Sharpe, and others), and stayed there Winning the BTV People’s Choice Award. By November, they sold out Hard Rock Atlanta's Velvet Underground and wrapped the year up by performing as the rock group chosen for SESAC's holiday party at Terminal West.

Parker, rhythm guitarist for the group said during an interview with Rockstar Dreams, “We can’t believe where this year has gone. Being able to work with top producers like Mama Jan Smith on our album, releasing our music for people to hear our sound, and being supported by such great fans really puts our music into perspective."

Revel in Romance is currently wrapping up their second EP and is planning it's release for spring 2018.

Zach Pietrini


Voted Best Live Act in Milwaukee (Milwaukee Magazine, 2017), it’s been 4 years since Zach Pietrini showed up on the Milwaukee music scene. Despite being a Chicago transplant, The Zach Pietrini Band has become a recognized name around town playing featured spots at Summerfest and Bastille Days. At the forefront of the Americana resurgence in the north country, Pietrini quickly distinguished himself with his fearless vulnerability, prolific writing, and dynamic live show. “Pietrini’s skill is crafting the kind of Americana that gets right into you with a beguiling friendliness” (88Nine Radio Milwaukee).

Pietrini’s 6th release, Denver Sessions, has continued to solidify his reputation as an Americana force. Picked for Best Album 2019- by Artistic Echoes, the new album was a "b-sides record that is more like an A-sides anthem." Music Review Roulette. Musically, “Pietrini’s smooth and delicate voice [affixes] to infectious hooks and a touch of classic country” (Milwaukee Record).
