The Brevet is described as an epic Americana sounding band. Their name is a nod to Civil War soldiers who were given a higher rank as a reward for “meritorious conduct” but without the power, prestige and authority that comes with an official promotion. The bands passion for their music comes first and audiences become complete converts. Combining elements of alternative, rock, folk, and country, they have been compared to Kings of Leon, Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers. Since the release of their 2013 independent debut, "Battle of the Heart", the Brevet has landed high-profile placements at Coachella and BottleRock, and on film and television, including The Good Lie, Ashby, 90210, American Idol and Apple.
