This week saw the release of alternative folk rocker Trevor Rebello’s new album, Roadhouse Royalty.

The album has 12 tracks all recorded sporadically from March to August 2017 at High Seas Studios in Johannesburg. Recorded and mixed by Jacques Du Plessis and Adrian Erasmus. Mastered by Jacob van der Westhuizen and produced by Jacques Du Plessis, Adrian Erasmus and Trevor Rebello.

“We really took our time on this album. I spent the past 2 years writing over 30 songs. We started in March at High Seas going through all the songs and choosing the final tracks that would make the album. We then further pre-produced each song spending days working on each part. With this being my first full length EP, I really wanted to present a body of work that I was absolutely proud of and I think that I have achieved that.

The album is more mature and upbeat than my previous EP “Slow Horses” but also includes some of the sadder and deeper songs that I am known for. I’ve stuck with a fusion of rock, soul, folk, country and gospel with a strong throw back to 70’s/80’s Americana/rock.

Roadhouse Royalty is all about being the “king” of your own home. It’s about self-acceptance and appreciation for what you have in life. It’s about feeling comfortable with and proud of where you come from. I love real places and real people who are not pretentious and get up early every day to go and work to support their families. For me, these are the type of people you find at the roadhouses on the East Rand of Johannesburg.

Hardworking, real and honest people! Roadhouse Royalty is a throwback to a time when we were younger and life was simpler and a trip to the roadhouse would be the highlight of your week. It’s where you would hang out with your friends and family, maybe hook up with a girl – and for a few moments you would feel like royalty” Trevor Rebello
