“Clay Melton is certain to be recognized as one of this generation’s guitar heroes,”declares Red Hot Rock Magazine. Raised in Houston, Texas, by way of Lake Charles, Louisiana, the 24-year-old Rock/Blues artist has the bayou in his blood, coming up in the nurturing Houston blues scene where renowned musician and mentor Carlos “Los” Johnson introduced 13-year old Clay as the “Prodigy Child” to the Houston music community. At 15 years old, the Dallas International Guitar Festival named Clay one of the Top 10 guitar players in Texas under 20 years old. Indie Music Reviews says “Clay Melton is a musician’s story teller and a guitarist’s god,”and Atwood Magazine pronounced “Clay Melton will be exploding out of Houston in no time.”

His talented guitar playing and songwriting recall the best parts of John Mayer, but Melton claims that Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Freddie King, and Buddy Guy were key influences as well. His debut album “Burn The Ships” climbed to #5 on Billboard Heatseekers, and Houston Press proclaimed “Burn The Ships is a great example of an artist on the rise re-writing the rules.”After his debut album, Clay quickly established himself as a rising star leading to an invitation to play the Chevrolet Main Stage at the State Fair of Texas in 2018.
