20-Piece Folk Collective ‘The Ree-Vahs!’ Release Third Album ‘Man Overboard’
The Ree-Vahs! – a North East UK folk collective from the borders of Durham and Northumberland have recently released their third offering Man Overboard – a tribute to founder member and songwriter, Paul Lee, who tragically took his own life in May 2017.
Acclaimed for singing in authentic North East accents, The Ree-Vahs! Deliver fresh folk songs about love, life and loss, depicting stories from the former mining and steel towns of the North East borders. After releasing their first album back in 2014 and their second in 2016, both achieving critical and commercial success, the band follow up with Man Overboard, named after a home recording made by the late Paul Lee several years ago.
After writing and performing together since their teens, band members and brothers Andy and Paul wrote the album prior to Paul’s death. Recorded in Liam Gaughan Studios, Newcastle, Man Overboard features heartfelt lyrics and warming folk instrumentation throughout, with some songs addressing social issues and some dedicated to family members.
The Ree-Vahs! and Paul’s friends came together in Jan 2018 to film a video for “Pack Your Bags” from the album which can be seen on their VEVO channel (here http://vevo.ly/0vMpyM).
Man Overboard is available to stream and download on all major platforms now, and the band is expected to perform at gigs and festivals across the UK over the course of 2018. For more information connect with The Ree-Vahs! on social media.
