Red Clay Revival is thrilled to announce its return to Birmingham Alabama, August 27th at Zydeco. Playing music from their debut album Barefoot that featured Keller Williams, Larry and Jenny Keel, and Tim Carbone from Railroad Earth, music from their EP Chilly that features Jeff Sipe from Aquarium Rescue Unit and Ryan Cavanaugh from the Jeff Austin Band, and debuting some brand new tunes from the yet to be released Red Clay Revival record. They will be sharing the stage with hometown favorite Winston Ramble and The Yellow Dandies are set to open.
Born in the soul-basted countryside of Alabama, and brought to the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains to marinade and mature, Red Clay Revival delivers an experience that reshapes the parameters of “roots music” as its known. The songsmith extraordinaire, Doug McElvy lays a solid foundation, and his heart-driven compositions are orbited by the most notable and virtuosic musicians in the industry today. For the 2012 full-length debut, Barefoot, McElvy teams with resophonic guitar guru, Billy Cardine, as creative consultant and co-producer.
The album features collaborations with decorated pros, such as; Keller Williams, Larry and Jenny Keel, and Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth. “Barefoot” received stellar reviews and accolades from industry peers, and listeners alike. The title track earned a spot on Relix Magazine’s widely distributed July-August 2012 compilation disc. For the 2014 EP, “Chilly,” McElvy and Cardine again pair in production, recruiting the talents of world class violinist, Casey Driessen, and beat master Jeff Sipe for backing elements. “Chilly” delivers nothing short of pure musical gold. Red Clay Revival's powerful live performance harnesses an energy that electrifies any room, leaving audiences with an embedded musical experience.
