Revival, an Album by Gillian Welch. Gillian Welch's debut album confidently establishes the template of her sound and style- her uniquely stoic voice and guitar with additional guitar and harmonies provided by partner David Rawlings who co-composes many of the songs. When Gillian Welch released her debut album, Revival, in 1996, plenty of listeners and critics were taken aback by her strikingly accomplished re-creation of the sound and mindset of country music of the '20s and '30s, as if she'd miraculously stepped out of Harry Smith 's Anthology of American Folk Music into Nashville in the late 20th century. If Welch and Rawlings often reach to sounds and styles of the past on Revival, they do so with an unaffected sincerity and natural grace, and the album's best moments ("Orphan Girl," "One More Dollar," and "Tear My Stillhouse Down") are the work of a gifted singer and songwriter who knows how to communicate the sounds of her heart and soul to others, and producer Burnett gets those sounds on … Welch and Rawlings were courted by producer T-Bone Burnett, whose creative interest left the duo with unlimited artistic license. … Genres: Americana, Contemporary Folk, Alt-Country, Singer/Songwriter. Gillian Welch and David Rawlings - post-graduation this stripped down Americana duo moved to Nashville where a few years later, they laid down the tracks for their first album, Revival.
