Texas Blues Rocker Clay Melton Releases Red Hot Blistering New EP


Today Watchtower Entertainment announced the hot new extremely soulful blues rock EP featuring blues rocker Clay Melton titled “Back To Blue”. The five song compilation contains four originals plus an incredible tribute track that absolutely gets it done: “Jesus Just Left Chicago” (track 5). The title track “Back To Blue” (track 1) is an emotionally charged slow blues number which presents the artist’s gritty soulful down home sound while at the same time showcases his remarkable crisp and clear lead guitar work. Both musical attributes reminiscent of the original Southeastern Texas and Southern Louisiana sound. “Say That You Love Me” (track 3) is an over the top driving blues rock number that reveals the deep desire in a man’s heart as he pleads with his girl to once again say that you love me. The song’s lyrics begin with “My girl got me acting like a fool” which immediately reveals Melton’s heart felt emotion while his blistering guitar work reinforces the narrative.
