Jesse Dayton, the Austin-based guitarist, singer, songwriter and filmmaker has announced the July 24th release of his newest EP, Gulf Coast Sessions, a collection of original songs inspired by the music he was raised on while growing up in Beaumont, TX; experiencing the sounds of the area from Beaumont to New Orleans. Two singles, “Lo-Fi Lover” and “Carencro Girl” are available on all streaming and digital download services today: http://lnk.blueelanrecords.com/jessedayton-lofilover-carencrogirl
“The Gulf Coast Sessions was inspired by that Interstate 10 area from Beaumont to New Orleans, where I was raised and where the old music was still going strong in the 70’s when I was a kid,” explained Jesse about the sentiment behind the recording. “East Texas African-American blues and gospel was everywhere, with lots of revival church music on the radio. I thought about all of these scenarios while we were making this raw little stripped-down record. It’s all Gulf Coast house party music with East Texas Blues, Red Hot Zydeco and New Orleans
The Gulf Coast Sessions EP was recorded on the back porch of friend Clay Connell’s old house-turned-vintage-shop Roadhouse Rags in South Austin. Taking the spirit of Jesse’s childhood memories, the results are a raw, stripped down house party fun!
“It’s loaded with vibe and reminds me of the music the grownups played at the hurricane parties I went to as a kid.”
Through his decades-long career, Jesse Dayton has become one of the music industry’s best kept secrets and valuable weapons with a sound that blends rock, blues, old school country, punk-rock and zydeco.
