“Get ready to hear more from Clay Melton as he takes the stage…No doubt those performances will be red hot, as Melton sharpened every guitar lick and lived every lyric on the road as a headliner and opening act for such superstars as blues guitar legend Robert Cray and multi-million-selling modern rocker Chris Daughtry,” says AMERICAN BLUES SCENE.
Blues-Rock Prodigy CLAY MELTON lives and breathes the fiery swagger of the electric guitar and the irresistible allure of rhythm-soaked sounds. At only 27, the Louisiana-born and Texas-based blues-rocker has already spent 14 years performing live. His powerfully raspy voice and wicked guitar licks leave no doubt hes grown up in the school of barroom blues-rock. His recent album release, 'Back to Blue' (July 2021), is being spun on more than 160 radio stations in the U.S. & abroad. The album hit #9 on the Roots Music Report and the title track, "Back to Blue", reached #1. 'Back to Blue' is Meltons follow-up to 2017 critically acclaimed, full-length debut 'Burn the Ships' which climbed the charts to #5 on Billboard Heatseekers Chart. Past credits for Clay include opening for blues-legend Robert Cray & platinum-selling artist Chris Daughtry. "The pairing of his powerful voice and his enviable skills on guitar make Clay a powerful Texas force to be reckoned with," raves KETR-FM Dallas.
