Rev Simpkins and the Phantom Notes – Band

Rev Simpkins – sinner-songwriter – performs a heady brew of bruising freak blues, string-snapping finger-picked folk, and sanctified psychedelia. His madcap albums, Babbler & Crow, Lions and The Pelican Sketches are packed with off-kilter stories, dark jokes, allegories, parables, and brazenly reworked Bible tales delivered with the help of brass bands, church bells, string orchestras, pipe organs and crows.
