At the heart of Jamestown Revival is a friendship that spans over a decade. Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance 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. About an hour north of Magnolia TX, there was some old family land with a dilapidated ranch house where they spent the better part of their adolescence. At one point or another, music from Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Everly Brothers, to fellow Texans Willie Nelson, Guy Clark and Stevie Ray Vaughan found it’s way through an old pair of speakers that sat on the back porch. The pair spent the day exploring that thousand-acre plot of land, and when the sun went down they took to the records of the songwriters and bands that inspired them. At the age of 22, they moved to Austin and began to craft a sound of their own which is deeply rooted in harmony and merging of 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 made the move to Los Angeles, CA. Throughout the course of the next year, they wrote what is Jamestown Revival’s first full-length album, Utah. It’s heavily autobiographical, telling the stories of their adventures, their discomforts, and their observations. 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 make up Utah. Performed live, with no headphones, and entirely to tape, the process captured the moments in the room.

Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance have since moved back to Austin and signed a record deal with Republic Records. Adding to the already soulful album, the band has since re-released Utah to feature three brand new arrangements of the signature tracks.

With an album already out on Lyttelton Records and rave reviews under their belt, South Island three piece, Devilish Mary & The Holy Rollers will be joining the bill with Jamestown Revival. Sultry frontwoman Devilish Mary (Anita Clark) comes backed by the fantastic Ben Woolley and Simon Gregory. Expect a repertoire of incandescent swing jazz tunes to warm you up before the Texan country kicks in.
