Listen to Red Clay Revival:

I love this band! These musicians carve an irresistible groove that always gets the party started. Doug Mcelvy is an authentic, soulful powerhouse of a vocalist and songwriter, not to mention a world class fly fisherman!  Fishin and pickin- what could be better?!

About Red Clay Revival:

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 it is known. Bandleader and songsmith extraordinaire, Doug McElvy, lays a solid foundation at the epicenter of Red Clay’s musical magnitude. 

McElvy’s skillful, heart-driven compositions are orbited by the most notable and virtuosic musicians in the industry today. For the 2012 full-length debut, Barefoot, McElvy teamed with resophonic guitar master, Billy Cardine, as creative consultant and co-producer. The album features collaborations with decorated pros, such as Keller Williams, Larry and Jenny Keel, as well as 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 paired 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.

Red Clay Revival’s new track “Gold” takes you straight to the fly fishing streams of western North Carolina. Singer-songwriter Doug Mcelvy (who’s also a fly-fishing guide) is as natural on his guitar as with his fly rod. With jam-scene veteran Zeb Bowles on the fiddle, this is roots rock at its finest!
