Jamestown Revival Come to Brooklyn Steel on Sunday Night

April 28th, 2017

Zach Chance (vocals and piano) and Jonathan Clay (vocals and guitar) met as teens in Texas and bonded over a wide array of music. Eventually, each launched a solo singer-songwriter career, sometimes harmonizing together while on tour. Thanks to the enthusiastic crowd response to their combined vocals, Chance and Clay formed Jamestown Revival six years ago, making Southern-tinged Americana featuring their harmonies. Their first album, Utah (stream it below), burst onto the scene in 2014, offering “up a big, bright, and mellifluous set of meticulously honed, radio-ready, country-folk confections that blend tight Everly/Avett Brothers harmonies with breezy West Coast melodies that invoke names like the Lumineers, Blitzen Trapper, Band of Horses and Belle Brigade,” according to AllMusic. Jamestown Revival (above, performing “Love Is a Burden” live in studio for KUTX FM) returned last year with their sophomore effort, The Education of a Wandering Man (stream it below), which PopMatters called “an upbeat road album filled with rich harmonies.” Going on to add: “While Jamestown Revival’s harmonies are the constant that provides cohesion, it’s their melding of influences that makes The Education of a Wandering Man stand out in a sea of post-Black Crowes country-rock outfits.” See Jamestown Revival play live on Sunday at Brooklyn Steel. Maine holler-folk four-piece Ghost of Paul Revere open the show.
