Thinking back to some of the most special live events we’ve presented at Revive Music, it’s hard not to recall the residency Mark de Clive-Lowe took up in NYC and LA entitled CHURCH. With musicians like Nate Smith, Mark Kelley, Eric Harland, James Genus, Chris Daddy Dave, Casey Benjamin, Jean Grae, Questlove, Nia Andrews, Gaslamp Killer, Jose James, and more joining the bandstand, each installment only got better than the previous as the night transformed music in a way no one had every seen done before. That is why we are beyond excited to be supporting Mark in bringing the CHURCH experience to wax with your help!
MdCL explained to us on it’s 1-year anniversary how he and vocalist nia andrews coined the term originally: “It’s in the tradition of the Black-American church and that uplifting spirit. That’s very much what we want to bring to the parties. Then at the same time, music is very much like a religion to me. It’s unseen, but it can be so omnipotent and really influential in how it touches people.”
On his journey to fund this record, MdCL has been dropping “One Take” videos as teasers and crowd pleasers that should remove any doubt from potential funders of the record. Take a peek at some of the magic below:
