Our recent discovery Tommy Rebel and his band The Righteous are the epitome of survival in the face of adversity due to rock ‘n roll.
Based in Austin, Texas, Tommy Rebel is known as a lead guitarist, singer-songwriter, poet-philosopher, and shaman. Music has been a long and winding road for him. Immersed in music at a young age, the passion for music never wavered and only gave Tommy the perseverance to fight his way through a wide array of issues. These ambitious experiences became the basis for the rock ‘n roll lifestyle that is Tommy Rebel.
Rock music has been a constant outlet and lifesaver for Tommy Rebel. He remained a staple of the scene through the ‘80s and 90s opening for rock stars such as Molly Hatchet, The Outlaws, and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. After some time away, music came calling again and the power rock ’n’ roll trio Tommy Rebel and the Righteous was born. Their energetic and original sound comes from decades of the lifestyle and a socially conscious message.
