Bittersweet Revival CD
Add To Cart
Folk music is the music of the masses.  It’s about people, not just pretty words.  
It should say ‘this is how we feel’.
Bittersweet Revival was created simply and anthemic in order to reach all people. There is hope in people, strength in our numbers, and power in our voices.  The album offers equal parts optimism and outcry, as 2018 is a year for both.
For Faultlines, at least, Bittersweet Revival transmits the soundtrack to this future.  
— John Flanagan
I wrote ‘LOVE IS ALL WE OWN’ for audiences to sing along. It’s a counter-positive song to ‘RAIN.’ Both songs acknowledge our current political state, but at the end of all the rallies, the marches, and the voting drives, we have to come home to ourselves and live in our love, not our anger.
In this high-charged era in which people are being pigeonholed by their differences, ‘LOVE IS ALL WE OWN’ implores us to recognize our similarities.
— John Flanagan


“2017 was a difficult year for America. Things have gotten ugly,” SONGWRITER JOHN Flanagan said. “A lot of songwriters have chosen to write distracting tomes to better times - and of course we crave escapism - but it’s the job of good creators to also hold up a mirror to society and say ‘Look at what we’re doing; see how hatred affects people.’”

 It’s in the spirit of Women’s Marches and twenty-first-century activism that Faultlines recorded songs like ‘Rain’ and ‘Save Us.’ In search of ways to instigate societal change, the band recently hosted two benefit concerts that raised over $30,000 combined for the ACLU of Southern California and Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles.
