Revere is a trio (brother, sister and cousin) that originated in 2011. Their music style is a fusion of RnB and Gospel. Petaia (lead vocalist) and Tatupu Fata (group leader) are siblings hailing originally from Whanganui. Their first cousin Seidah Tuaoi (vocalist) is orginally from Wellington. Both families moved to Auckland, where they were able to hone on their musical abilities and help grow their family church ministry. The band name Revere was taken from the word Reverence which means Worship which is a direct reference to their Faith and their Grandparents Christian legacy.

In 2016 and 2017, they were nominated as a finalist in the gospel category at the Vodafone Pacific Music Awards. Following this, they released "Groove Thing" produced together with their band members whom are also producers and sound engineers from Studio One Seven Six.
