Album Notes
Powerhouse duo, Jason Mogi and Kim Trenerry have done it again with their 2nd album " This Old World". A beautiful blend of original tunes, a few traditionals and an amazing version of a Bob Dylan tune, this album is quite the that can be listened to over and over again.

Jason and Kim have been playing music together for over 10 years. Their music is always played from the heart...each tune a soul filled expression. Their harmonies are impeccable, powerful and a major part of their "sound". For all these reasons and the fact that these are real folks playing real music, Deadwood Revival has been getting much deserved recognition.

Rudy Minnaert "Country Eagle" The Netherlands

Amezing good music. The harmony between the instruments and the voices are amazing. this is the kind of music we hear to little on the radio. Nowedays it must be country pop but they have no respect for the roots of country music. This is the kind of music with brings you back to the basis and beginning of the good country/folk music. I am graceful to Deadwood revival for making there awesome music.

Tom Petersen, Victory Review

Oh, Deadwood Revival, we salute you!
One of the hottest bands on Northwest
Acoustic scene is back with their second
release, and it’s fully as good as the smash
debut we loved a couple years ago. Though
only a duo, they won the Northwest String
Summit band competition because they can
pick like nobody’s business. They have also
mastered the Gillian Welch trick of infusing
their originals with key lyrical and musical
phrases from the folk and country canon,
instantly evoking other times and places
while moving into new territory. Kim
Trenerry has one of the most distinctive
voices going, a piercing country-soul call
that works to shattering effect on the frisky
“Ain’t the Buyin’ Kind” and gives a loving
lilt to the loping “Lucky Day.” Jason Mogi’s
own light sandy baritone turns out to be
perfect for back-up and and the fascinating
“Old Bar.” The pair show their breadth with
the thoroughly modern raver “Shake the
Barnhouse Down,” which is almost like one
of those Big & Rich country raps, and a
cover of Blind Willie Johnson’s gospel
shout “Fully Saved Today.” The latter
begins a four song set of covers to close
the record, and it’s like a great record within-
a-record. If what Dennis James of
Truckstop Souvenir says is true – that a
band’s covers are the windows on its soul –
then Deadwood Revival’s soul is true
America. Run these up the flagpole: “The
Farmer Is The Man.” Dylan’s “You Ain’t
Goin’ Nowhere.” The traditional “Sandy
Boys.” Oh, Deadwood Revival, we salute

It's a revival of the best kind!
Jason Mogi and Kim Trenerry (Deadwood Revival) have a vocal chemistry that draws listeners in. They could make any nonsense a pleasing waltz or a raucous romp with the right harmonic twist. Their blend has a gratifying timbre, and their instincts are perfectly in sync. That's not to say the lyrics take second string, especially with lines like, "You wanna get to heaven after foolin' 'round in hell."
Deadwood Revival swoops in with a large sound that belies their two-piece setup. Their broad range emphasizes their remarkable talent for making the right choices. "This Old Bar" demonstrates the purity of their intentions in a simple harmonica solo, pulling all the right strings without virtuosic show.
Mogi's clawhammer has a confidence that speaks to his past as a drummer. Often he slips into the blues, turning Trenerry into a scorching songstress. It's a rare ability to pull off a hoedown and a seduction at the same time, and it bodes well for the future of the Revival.
The choice of cover songs on This Old World reveals the extent to which Deadwood Revival is steeped in the folk tradition. A smattering of old time banjo ("Sandy Boys"), spiritual ("Fully Saved Today"), folk staple ("The Farmer is the Man") and the inevitable - and unusually rendered - Dylan ("You Ain't Goin' Nowhere"), the selections span the history, most likely, of their own musical foundation. The striking feature here is how much these covers sound like original Deadwood Revival works - meaning it's a revival of the best kind. (Self-released)

Magnificent Vocal Blend and Banjo Brilliance
The most amazing thing about this duo is their ability to sound much bigger than two people playing two instruments. Between the two of them, they actually play many instruments and sometimes it sounds like they’re playing them all at once! Kim Trenerry (Guitar (incredible!) Vocals (awesome) Bass) and Jason Mogi (Banjo-incredible! Slide banjo (a new one on me and very cool!) Vocals, Guitar, and Harmonica) call home Port Angeles, WA., just up the road from me and have been playing together for about 10 years. Eight out of the twelve selections on this wonderful CD are original and reflect the diverse musical background which brought these two fine musicians together. They have a magnificent vocal blend anchored by Kim’s powerful voice complemented by the softer yet perfect pitch of Jason Mogi. Jason does some incredible things with the banjo, getting sounds out of the instrument that are unique and captivating in his use of a slide on his banjo in “Roscoe Stomp”. They both let loose in a rousing rendition of gospel favorite, “Fully Saved Today”. Jason wowed me again with his banjo brilliance using a fretless “gourd banjo” on his original instrumental “Down to the Wire”. This is just simply a GREAT CD, with mostly original music written and performed by two very talented people. Don’t miss this one!

love it - a must have
This is a long awaited second cd. Finally I have more of their wonderful harmony!

Fresh New Old Time Music
The original songs sound traditional, the covers are fresh reinterpretations, and it's all spiced with acoustic Grateful Dead flavor (except Jason and Kim are great singers). In fact, the vocals, and harmonies in particular, are the main delights here. This CD also captures the feeling of their exuberant live performances.

Joe Ross

Healthy vigor, gusto & enthusiasm into a new presentation of ‘old world’ inspire
Playing Time – 46:09 -- “This Old World” hastens back to less hectic and stressful days when music was primarily made on the porch or around the fireplace. The cover of Deadwood Revival’s second CD sets the stage with a historic 1887 photo of Port Angeles, Wa. back when the town was striving for the social and political perfection of Utopia. Originally meeting in Atlanta, Ga. in the mid-1990s, Jason Mogi and Kim Trenerry discovered that their ideas and interests were harmonious. The duo also realized they had a powerful vocal blend accompanied with their guitar and harmonica. They decided to head to the Pacific Northwest in search of that nearly perfect lifestyle where the cows all like to milk themselves. Now, the duo also incorporates banjo, bass and percussion into their music, and Jason has taken to building banjos.

With their travelin’ shoes on and instruments in tow, Deadwood Revival opens this set with “Bound To Go,” a tale of embarkation from this old world to the other side. The liner notes acknowledge banjo-player and song-carrier Stephen Wade for some inspiration. Cross-eyed Rosie’s Ellie Holzemer provides some skipping fiddle to the original opener, and she appears again with vocals and fiddle in “Lucky Day,” another Deadwood Revival original. In fact, their eight originals are embossed with some eclectic folk, blues, old-time and even classic country flavors. “Down to the Wire” is the most rustic and rawboned offering – an instrumental featuring a gourd banjo built by Jay Moschella. Then, “Shake the Barnhouse Down” forgoes banjo altogether for a guitar-centric groove that is a contemporary rendering of Saturday night in a small Tennessee mountain town. For banjo groove, the traditional “Sandy Boys” is just the ticket with additional lyrics from Mogi. There is also clawhammer and slide banjo featured in “Roscoe Stomp,” Jason's homage to Roscoe Holcomb.

Covers come from Blind Willie Johnson (Church I’m Fully Saved Today), Fiddlin’ John Carson (The Farmer is the Man), and Bob Dylan (You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere). Blind Willie’s forte was his ability to powerfully fuse sacred and bluegrass songs. While I am more familiar with and have more of a penchant for the New Lost City Rambler’s up-tempo rendition of “The Farmer is the Man,” Deadwood Revival’s bluesy version is quaint and pleasant. It’s a sentiment that rings true today – “The lawyer hangs around while the butcher cuts a pound / But the farmer is the man who feeds them all.” Finally, in the Dylan cover, Jason and Kim’s vocal interplay would make their offering a sure crowd-pleaser at the coffee houses, bars, clubs, parties, markets, concerts, festivals they perform at. In fact, their music has cross-market potential that has allowed them to find gigs at folk, old-time, roots and bluegrass venues.

On “This Old World,” old-time and folk sensibilities are being forged into evocative new world music. Deadwood Revival isn’t trying to make something out of nothing. Rather, they’re on the leading edge of the resurgence and revitalized interest in old-time music. They’re infusing healthy vigor, gusto and enthusiasm into their new presentation of ‘old world’ inspired music. I also sense that they’re striving for some Utopian vision and idealism in the music too. (Joe Ross, staff writer, Bluegrass Now)

John Molinari

A powerful sophomore effort! You'll love this disc!
This Old World finds Deadwood Revival firing on all four air cooled cylinders. Jason and Kim continue where they left off with their self titled debut. Crisp vocals accompanied by tight instrumentation make this disc a joyous journey through pure Old Time Americana. From the poignancy of Ain't the Buying Kind and You Ain't Goin' Nowhere to the foot tapping exuberance of Roscoe Stomp and Shake the Barnhouse Down, this disc truly satisfies.


feeling good music
A great CD that makes you feel good! This is what music is meant to be like. True music craftsmanship that has americana written all over it. Magical harmonies and melodies filled with stories that take you away, at least for a little while, from todays stressful times. Thanks DWR, you are appreciated!
