Initially formed by Stephen Ellis, Revere (named after a comic-strip in 2000AD) wrote and performed with a rotating line up until 2005 when Ellis relocated to London. The band self-released several singles and EPs in 2005-06, including As The Radars Sleep..., Chloroform, Skin and Learning to Breathe.
Revere spent the years between 2007 and 2010 touring, and working on their debut album Hey! Selim. Performances included the Union Chapel, Glastonbury, The Tabernacle in Notting Hill, and Standon Calling Festival. Ellis supported Al Stewart on his US and UK tours in 2009, and in spring 2010 the band embarked on a UK tour to promote the release of their third single We Won't Be Here Tomorrow.
September 2010 saw the release of Revere's debut album Hey! Selim. Two tracks were released as lead-up singles, The Escape Artist and We Won't Be Here Tomorrow. The band also recorded an in-studio session for "BBC Introducing".
After a short break, Revere regrouped to compose and rehearse more material. A new song, What Am I If I'm Not Even Dust was performed on BBC Radio London's Sunday Sessions,. The end of 2011 saw the release of four digital remix EPs entitled Revere: Reworked #'s 1-4.
In November 2011, Revere toured the UK with Malian kora player and 2-time Grammy winner Toumani Diabaté. Towards the end of the tour, Revere and Diabaté recorded several tracks together, including a cover of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart". In early 2012, Stephen Ellis returned to The South Bank Centre to accompany Vieux Farka Touré on the track 'All The Same' (originally performed by Dave Matthews).
In February 2012, Revere won Channel 5's "Send Us Your Music" competition: their prize was a video for new song Keep This Channel Open.
