Jamestown Revival “Round Prairie Road” – Listen

Just a little while ago Jamestown Revival would probably have found themselves being compared to the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, but here in the 21st century the topical comparison is the Milk Carton Kids.  That’s still not a bad thing.  ‘Round Prairie Road‘ is a real place, as Jonathan Clay explains the song, it “is about a piece of land out in the country that has been in my family since the 70’s. In fact, it’s the place where Zach (Chance) and I conceived the idea to start Jamestown Revival and where we wrote our first song for the band. As we spent the next 10 years of our life touring, a lot of things changed with the land. Oil companies came to exploit their mineral rights, fences went up and it felt like too many people had a key to the lock on that gate. It was our sacred little piece of paradise, but there was not a way to keep it unchanged – no matter how much we loved that place.”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
