Thomas Howell…as the character “Ponyboy” in the movie the Outsiders, where he won the hearts of millions and still does to this day…or maybe as “The Reaper” in the show Criminal Minds, where his dark & twisted character still wreaks havoc in the minds of those who watched that storyline unfold. Tommy Howell is an accomplished actor, writer, director, producer. He most recently reprised his role of Ray in the final season of Walking Dead.

Rob Snyder is a Singer-Songwriter from West Chester, PA. Snyder’s appetite for music began at an early age and was encouraged by his family, as both of his grandfathers were musicians and writers.

With the moniker “Hank and Jesus are watching”, “Revival” showcases some of country music’s most talented songwriters every Tuesday. Snyder has had songs recorded by Luke Combs’ 4 Week Billboard Number One Song “She Got The Best of Me” as well as “Six Feet Apart” and “Dear Today”, Ashland Craft, Will Hoge, The Davisson Brothers Band, & Adam Hood.

Native Missourian, Nate Fredrick learned to play guitar after his dad brought one home—that he never learned to play—when Nate was 12. But he didn’t start writing songs until a decade later. “A friend and I were running from the police one night, and I accidentally fell off a cliff,” Nate says. “During the two-year recovery process, I started actually making music instead of just playing music. The first show I ever had, I played with my jaw wired shut.”
His bluesy Americana style is the result of influences such as Guy Clark Creedence Clearwater Revival and Van Morrison to name a few. Fredrick wrote more than 100 songs while writing for of his debut album Different Shade of Blue released February 26th 2021.
