What is Americana Music? 

Americana is an amalgam of American music formed by the confluence of the shared and varied traditions that make up the musical ethos of the United States, specifically those sounds that are merged from folk, country, blues, rhythm and blues, rock and roll, gospel, and other external influences.  Americana, as defined by the Americana Music Association (AMA), is "contemporary music that incorporates elements of various mostly acoustic American roots music styles, including country, roots rock, folk, gospel and bluegrass resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw. While acoustic instruments are often present and vital, Americana also often uses a full electric band."  Source Wiki 

Americana is a wide umbrella as shown by the 2019 Grammy nominees for Best Americana Album which included, "By The Way, I Forgive You" by Brandi Carlile (who was also nominated for Best Song); "Things Have Changed" by Bettye LaVette, known primarily as an R&B artist; "The Tree Of Forgiveness by John Prine"; "The Lonely, The Lonesome & The Gone" by Lee Ann Womack, known primarily as a country artist: and "One Drop Of Truth" by The Wood Brothers, who have been compared to jam bands like Phish and the Grateful Dead. 

Is Raveis Kole Americana Music? 

Yes and more, depending on who you ask.  Raveis Kole is inspired by all genres of music. In their latest album, Laurie and Dennis showcase their fringe Americana appeal by adding in jazz and world elements.  "It Must Be Ok (We Starve)" offers beautiful jazz harmony and chords, "Aloha" includes Celtic tonality, rhythmic drones, and Eastern European elements while "Precipice Forgiveness (Flow is On)" showcases a Middle Eastern mystery vibe.
