BIOGRAPHY

Despite the name, Detroit’s favorite non-native sons are actually a duo from Providence, RI, composed of Jeff Toste (guitar/vocals) and Michael Lamantia Jr. (drums), aka Mikey Lams. Bringing the less is more approach to their combination of blues, folk, and “other" styles (with an emphasis on the “other"), Detroit Rebellion lit a fire in the blogosphere with their debut EP Fork In the Road, earning praise from LA.com, Louder Than War and Berkeley Place amongst others. The record garnered airplay on such notable stations as KXLU in Los Angeles and WMBR in Boston. The track “Dirty Boots" is being featured in the upcoming film Growing Up and Other Lies featuring Adam Brody and Wyatt Cenac. 

On their sophomore EP, The Detroit Rebellion of ‘67, the band relies simply on the formula that worked for their debut. Utilizing no tricks or gimmicks, the EP is a gritty, mold on the amps, stripped bare love letter to the blues.

In 2009, Toste began performing solo as Detroit Rebeillion, which he referred to as “a tribute to old school blues, folk and Americana." Once Mikey Lams joined on drums, Toste found Detroit Rebellion “mutating into something else." During the recording, Toste decided he wanted to add some texture to the songs, so he tried running a distortion pedal through his acoustic guitar, the same peddle he scored from Kurt Cobain twenty year ago.

The result of that “something else" and experimentation is continued on The Detroit Rebellion of ‘67, four tracks of gritty riffs and uncompromising rockers, recalling greats of the past (John Lee Hooker) up to contemporary revivalists Jack White and The Black Keys.

PRESS QUOTES

“Oozing with tinges of tribal rock and Americana.” - Rex Manning Day

“Detroit Rebellion’s Fork In The Road EP is a grimy motor mouthed Frankenstein all its own.” - The Fire Note

“Detroit Rebellion kick out some seriously grimy and groovy garage blues laced with chugging jazz rhythms, and I'm hopping on the bandwagon right now....And the next time Walter White and Jesse decide to rob a train of methylamine, they could draw inspiration from the grimy gallop of ‘Dirty Boots’ and first single, ‘Fork In the Road.’” - Providence Phoenix
