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 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 the 11 songs that comprise UTAH. Performed live, with no headphones, and entirely to tape, the process captured the moments in the room.
Jamestown Revival are excited to announce a run of headlining tour dates (Sons of Fathers, The Wind + Wave and Kris Orlowski supporting) beginning in May and will also be performing this year at major festivals, including Bonnaroo and Hangout Fest. Check out the band’s killer performance on Conan of the single: “California (Cast Iron Soul)” and listen below to one of my favorite songs “Revival” and get it on BUTR Vol. 9: Americana for Hipsters I.
