Easily one of my favorite finds of 2014, Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance have brought their band down to the gulf coast of Alabama three times this year and each time has been better than the last. Watching them evolve from the unknown opener for The Wild Feathers in January, to the surprise hit of the Thursday night Kick-Off Party for Hangout Fest in May, to headlining the same stage they opened on at the start of the year for a large, enthusiastic crowd that sounded more than well-versed in Jamestown Revival’s discography in October, 2014 has been a year of much deserved exponential growth in popularity for these two small town Texas boys.

Despite their rapid success, the fellas that make up Jamestown Revival remain some of the most genuinely kind and down-to-earth people you’ll come across. At the conclusion of their show last week, all five members stood around the merch table chatting, signing autographs, and taking pictures with a long line of grateful fans that snaked through the entire width of the room for as long as it took each and every person to get their opportunity to say hello. I commented to Chance after the show how impressed I was to hear so many people in the audience singing the words to every song on their albumĀ Utah, and he admitted it’s still a “truly humbling experience” to hear their songs sung back to them by a room full of people. Well Zach, I have to say, you better get used to it.

My good friend Lynn Oldshue of The Southern Rambler sat down with Clay and Chance during Hangout Fest in May for some interesting and entertaining conversation, as most chats with those two seem to be. Go check out that interview (accompanied by photos from yours truly) by clicking here.
