CLAY MELTON BAND – SATURDAY, 10/1 @ 1:00PM
Ask any of the thousands of fans who’ve been energized by Clay Melton Band’s high octane shows throughout their home state of Texas, and they’ll usually use names like John Mayer and Foo Fighters to describe their explosive vibe. But dig deeper into Clay’s musical journey and you’ll hit on that classic moment at age 11 when he heard Jimi Hendrix’s “All Along The Watchtower” and his world quickly changed.
Influenced further by Stevie Ray Vaughan, Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, Clay was being hailed as a young master guitarist by his mid-teens. The Dallas International Guitar Festival proclaimed Clay “one of the TOP 10 Guitar Players in Texas under 20 years old” after his performance brought down the house.
More recently, Clay Melton Band has received phenomenal feedback on their new EP from industry greats such as Grammy winning producer Jared Lee Gosselin (Velvet Revolver, Frank Zappa, Macy Gray) who said, “This kid is a force of nature!”
Also a Grammy-winning producer, Joel Soyffer (Joe Cocker, Doobie Brothers, Aloe Blacc) mixed and mastered the EP at Coney Island Studios.
