Jesse Dayton: ​Tour with The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band



AMERICANA GUITARIST JESSE DAYTON

SET TO RELEASE THE REVEALER SEPTEMBER 16


​Tour with The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band &

The Supersuckers This Fall…

(Los Angeles, CA – July 7, 2016) – Texas guitarist, singer/songwriter JESSE DAYTON releases his new album, The Revealer, on September 16t via his new record deal with Blue Elan Records. DAYTON, the country-blues-punk guitarist from Beaumont, TX, has been building a cult following around the globe, playing 180 shows a year in North America and Europe, with his guitar shredding, country-infused, Americana sound.
Recorded in Houston at the Gulf Coast’s hit factory, SugarHill Studios, The Revealer puts DAYTON’s considerable talent on full display as he plays guitar, bass, percussion, and keys, as well as singing his own harmonies. He’s assisted by childhood buddy Eric Tucker, Mike Stinson, and Eric Hughes on drums, and Austin ringers Riley Osbourne (piano and B3) and Beth Chrisman (fiddle). Evans and engineer Steve Christensen, a Grammy Award winner for his engineering work on Steve Earle’s 2009 Grammy nominated album Townes, round out DAYTON’s dream team. “John and I go way back to our days in Houston,” DAYTON explains, “and once we got in the studio it felt like the ghosts of Freddy Fender, George Jones, and Doug Sahm were in the room with us. They all recorded massive hits there with Huey Meaux and there’s just such a powerful vibe. You’re surrounded by all this Texas music history and that’s inspiring.”

The Revealer starts right off with a bang, from the track titled "Daddy Was A Badass,” a driving piece recalling the hard charging life of DAYTON’s own father and uncles. This opening track explains a whole hell of a lot about who JESSE DAYTON is and why he sounds so different from the current wave of Americana artists. Other highlights include "Three Pecker Goat” which Dayton co-wrote with longtime friend and Americana star Hayes Carll and a duet on "Match Made In Heaven" with Austin songbird Brennan Leigh.

An early chance meeting with Austin blues impresario Clifford Antone (the man who discovered Stevie Ray & Jimmie Vaughn, Charlie Sexton, Doyle Bramhall Sr. & Jr, etc.), led to an invitation for DAYTON to “come to Austin and play Antone’s, anytime.” This priceless exposure, coupled with the #1 ranking of his first record, Raisin’ Cain(1995) on Americana radio, led to DAYTON being hired at a young age to play with his heroes. DAYTON played lead guitar for Waylon Jennings’ on the album Right For The Time and on Ray Prices' Prisoner of Love. Then he recorded with Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Johnny Bush & played live with Kris Kristofferson & his hero Glen Campbell. DAYTON formed his own label in 2002, Stag Records, and began his most prolific recording period. He recorded five solo records, one duet record and one live record, all on Stag. He also recorded two soundtrack recordings, Devil’s Rejects and Halloween 2, for rocker/director Rob Zombie. DAYTON also found time to act in movies and music videos, produce several records for other artists (the latest being Supersuckers front man Eddie Spaghetti’s The Value Of Nothing on Bloodshot Records), write two screenplays, and most recently write and direct the horror movie, Zombex starring Malcolm McDowell, Sid Haig, John Doe, and Lew Temple (The Walking Dead).

DAYTON is currently on tour with X’s John Doe hitting Colorado, Kansas City and Houston in July. He’ll head out for more solo shows in August, up and down the west coast ending with the Rock N Rye Music Festival in Mammoth on Labor Day. Beginning October 7th, DAYTON will join his good friends, the Supersuckers, and The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band on a full U.S. Tour. Current tour dates are below with more dates TBA.
