Blues-rock prodigies are a special breed.

They live and breathe the fiery swagger of electric guitars and the irresistible allure of rhythm-soaked sounds. That’s Clay Melton’s musical calling in a nutshell. 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 he’s grown up in the school of barroom blues-rock.


Clay’s recent release, Back to Blue (July 2021), is being spun on more than 160 radio stations in the U.S. and abroad. As of August 21st, Roots Music (the #1 independent music chart in the world) ranks Clay on the Blues Rock charts with the #1 song in the world for the title track Back to Blue, #9 album in the world, and #7 album in Texas for all genres.


Back to Blue is Melton’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed, full-length debut Burn the Ships which climbed the charts to #5 on Billboard Heatseekers. Back to Blue boasts production and engineering credits by Grammy-winner Danny Jones (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Patti LaBelle, Etta James) as well as Clay himself.


Clay Melton is quickly establishing himself as a rising star, most recently opening for Grand Funk Railroad on the Chevrolet Main Stage at the State Fair of Texas, and sharing the stage with Sir Earl Toon, of Kool & The Gang fame. Past credits also include opening for blues-legend Robert Cray and platinum-selling artist Chris Daughtry.
