About Reviver Records:
Reviver Records started with a song and a charity-driven campaign several years ago - "Let Us In". As an independent record label, Reviver is now on the verge of taking the term "independent" to a new level of entertainment - a new level of music. To some, this may sound as if Reviver Records is more of a cliché, but that is not the case. In essence, Reviver is an independent, risk taking, staunch in its beliefs, young, free, supportive... daunting and above all, caring record label. Reviver Records lives in its freedom to discover and introduce both new and classic songs/artists in varying genres. As an American record label, its lifeblood flows to support independence, creativity, and the culture of song, explore uncharted territory, and promote new and established artists and present records with artistry and radio in mind.
