JAMESTOWN REVIVAL’S SAN ISABEL RELEASED TO WIDESPREAD CRITICAL ACCLAIM

FALL TOUR DATES CONFIRMED INCLUDING SEVERAL SHOWS WITH RYAN BINGHAM

Jamestown Revival’s critically acclaimed new album, San Isabel, is available now via Thirty Tigers. Stream/purchase HERE. Co-produced by Jamestown Revival and Jamie Mefford (Nathaniel Rateliff, Gregory Alan Isakov), San Isabel was recorded at Ward Lodge Studios overlooking the San Isabel National Forest in Buena Vista, Colorado and includes 10 new songs co-written by Clay and Chance as well as a rendition of The Mama & The Papas’ 1965 classic, “California Dreamin’.”

Recent critical acclaim for San Isabel…

“…stirring harmonies and captivating storytelling…” –Billboard

“...bright harmonies and loping guitar patterns…splits the difference between modern-day Americana and old-school folk.” –Rolling Stone

“The record is abundant with imagery—one minute they’re evoking the expansive west on ‘Round Prairie Road’ and ‘Mountain Preamble’ and the next they’re crooning a thoughtful ballad on ‘This Too Shall Pass.’” –Paste

“An effortless vocal harmonization washes over you as the light guitar strum dances playfully in the backdrop of this starry-eyed folk melody…The final product is a mesmerizing track that’s both beautifully crafted and earnest at its core.” –Earmilk

“moments of sheer beauty and transcendence.” –No Depression

“one of the most gorgeous sounding albums heard in a long time.”   
“Play the entire album. Every track is a standout. You’ll never tire of their harmonies. Soak them in. They may revive you spiritually in a way that a shower refreshes you physically.” –Glide Magazine

“…a gorgeous new album that marks both a return to  Jamestown  Revival’s acoustic roots and a bold step forward into more topical lyricism.” –The Bluegrass Situation

“Wearing its influences on its sleeve, the band channels the bright compositions of acts like Simon & Garfunkel or Crosby, Stills & Nash with the playful guitar and intertwining vocals…” –Austin Monthly

“…hushed and moving…” –Austin American-Statesman

“With skillful harmonies and a tightly-honed sound, Jamestown Revival has the kind of polish and heart that only two people who’ve been playing together for a long time can create.” –mxdwn.com

“…delightful harmonization…”
“…with the music you can almost see the sun peeking out through the clouds, signaling that you’re almost there – showing you that this too shall pass.” –Atwood Magazine

“…their music somehow taps into that secret sauce of what makes certain classic songs so timeless and endlessly enjoyable.” –BroBible

“Their style is heavy on harmonies, with songs inspired by everyone from Louis L’Amour to John Prine, with a little Willie Nelson thrown in for good measure…definitely one to watch (and hear).” –The Plain Dealer


In celebration of the release, Jamestown Revival will continue to tour extensively throughout 2019 including several dates supporting Ryan Bingham. Upcoming stops include Madison’s Barrymore Theatre, Minneapolis’ First Avenue, Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Austin’s Paramount Theater (two nights) and Dallas’ Southside Ballroom among several others. Tickets are on-sale now via https://jamestownrevival.com/tour/. See below for complete details.

Of the inspiration behind the album, Clay comments, “We wrote this record with sort of an overarching theme, which is cutting out the noise for a minute and maybe stepping away from social media, from the internet and from the complicated, busy nature of most of our lives—and focusing on existing for a minute. If this record inspires people to do a little bit of that, then we would be really happy with that result.”

In addition to Clay (vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, harmonica, banjo, steel guitar, bass), Chance (vocals, acoustic guitar) and Mefford (juno, acoustic guitar, banjo, background vocals), San Isabel also features Nick Bearden (bass guitar), Ed Benrock (drums, percussion, background vocals), Psyche Dunkhase (cello), John Grigsby (bass), Dan Reckard (wurlitzer, organ, piano, accordion) and Rachel Sliker (violin, viola).

The release of San Isabel follows a series of breakout years for Jamestown Revival. After meeting as teenagers in the small town of Magnolia, TX, Clay and Chance went on to self-release their debut album, Utah, in 2014 followed by their acclaimed 2016 album, The Education of a Wandering Man. Of the Austin-based pair, Consequence of Sound declares, “…one of the country’s preeminent Americana duos,” while CMT praises, “…an eclectic style of alt country for hearts who live to ramble.” Building a fan base through grassroots support, Jamestown Revival has toured relentlessly over the past four years, performing at iconic venues from the Ryman Auditorium to Red Rocks Amphitheater as well as countless festivals such as Coachella, Austin City Limits, Stagecoach, Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic and more.
