Inspired by the soulful sounds of the 1960s, Bridge City Revival (BCR) is a new soul music collective from Portland, Oregon. At the core of the project are bandleader and trumpeter Farnell Newton, guitarist Gus Berry, keyboardist and bassist Michael Elson, and drummer Tyrone Hendrix. Drawing inspiration from masters of the style from the past and present, including: The Chi-Lites, Otis Redding, The Isley Brothers, Lee Fields, and Sharon Jones, Bridge City Revival’s sound and raison d’etre are encapsulated in their name.
