Rebel Roots Studio was started late in 2008 by J.B. Beverley in Richmond, VA. Beverley started Rebel Roots in an effort to get away from commercial studio politics, and to give his and other people's recordings a more down-home, laid back feel.
Starting with the recording of the Wayward Drifters sophomore release "Watch America Roll By", J.B.'s talent behind the mixing board quickly gained much esteem and notoriety.
"I wanted a true home to record in. I got tired of being in commercial spaces, looking at the clock every few hours and thinking to myself ' We're going to owe this guy another few hundred bucks when at the turn of the hour'. It made more sense to study up on recording, work some trial and error, and invest in some equipment."
In 2012, Beverley partnered up with long time friend and band mate Buck Thrailkill to move Rebel Roots to it's new home in Fayetteville, NC. The result has not only been good for the Wayward Drifters, but for several other musicians as well. Tales of laid back recording sessions, laughter, and all around good times have become standard when referencing Rebel Roots, and J.B. has devoted almost all of the time that he isn't on tour to recording, mixing, and mastering a slew of recordings.
