Portland-born, DR has evolved from the confines of a basement, to some of Portland's most sought after stages, and more. DR's soulful sounds and energetic beats deliver an atmosphere that enraptures the audience in the dirtiest of musical revivals.
Led by the soulful vocals of Ms. Sarah Clarke and enhanced by verses from MC evv'n'flo, DR has emerged on the Pacific Northwest music scene with passion and flare. The unique ensemble intermingles classic and original tracks with a resounding presence, no matter how big or small the venue.
The dynamic, seven-piece soul outfit shines on stage, and defines influences from funk- and soul-infused icons of the past. Dirty Revival has shared the stages with musical heavy-hitters such as Michael Franti, George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Slick Rick, Nappy Roots and Gift of Gab, and have several multi-regional tours already under their belt.
The band has been actively touring in support of their debut album, the self titled, Dirty Revival, release in September of 2015.
The release was marked by a sold out CD release party at one of Portland's premier venues, Mississippi Studios. Driven by the warm reception of their freshman album, Dirty Revival has the heart and mind behind the music and the unyielding drive to share their soul.
