Jc and the Revival

JC and the Revival founded by Rev. Aaron Lee Mills with the idea of bringing great Blues music with a Gospel message using plenty of vintage and modern overtones.
Blues and Gospel fit well together because Blues is singing the real hardship of life and the Gospel is the solution for hardship. Listening to his mother sing in the Southern Gospel music scene as child he was influenced greatly by that music but after discovering the lighting, Texas sounds of Stevie Ray Vaughan led him to seek and learn a completely new kind of music, the Blues.

"The first time I heard Stevie Ray's playing it sounded like gospel music. I could hear it being played in a church service.", states Aaron.

Many hours were spent listening to Blues music which led Aaron down a rabbit hole to Blind Willie Johnson and Robert Johnson . Many claim Robert Johnson gave his soul to the Devil and Blind Willie devoted his life to God. That seemed to be the birth of Gospel Blues, "Who do you give your heart to God or the Devil?"

The first set of works that Aaron produced was the album Red Hot Gospel.
