Jamestown Revival are excited to release their debut album UTAH today. The much-anticipated album has received praise from critics, with PopMatters saying: “Jamestown Revival has been blessed with the ability to lullaby the listener with one song (the soft-stepping “Medicine”) before pulling a sonic punch with the next (“Headhunters”, as much a companion to Ryan Adams’ “To Be Young (Is to Be Sad, Is to Be High)” as I’ve ever heard).” Purchase the album at the link below:
Jamestown Revival are currently touring in support of UTAH‘s release. The tour includes shows in Chicago (Feb 16 at Double Door) and Los Angeles (Mar 05 at The Troubadour). For the band’s full itinerary, please see below.
Jamestown Revival is made up of Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance, two close friends who grew up together in the small Texas town of Magnolia. From a young age, they shared a love for music as well as the outdoors.
At the age of 22, they moved to Austin and began to craft a sound of their own. Deeply rooted in harmony, they merged the sounds of the South with classic American, and Western rock. Looking for adventure, as well as a change of pace, they eventually made the decision to head west and make the move to Los Angeles, CA. There, the duo wrote the songs that would become The California EP and their full-length debut, UTAH.
In order to capture the spirit of the music, the two found a log cabin high within the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. The pair, along with their band and engineer, set out to convert it in to a temporary recording studio. With wild moose right outside the window, and aspen leaves spinning in the wind, they tracked 14 songs. Performed live, with no headphones, and entirely to tape, the process captured the moments in the room.
