Jamestown Revival are an upcoming folk alt-country band from Austin, Texas. I was able to catch them live a few months ago when they played the Brighton Music Hall with The Wild Feathers and Saints of Valory, and they sounded fantastic live. Their debut album, Utah, is solid, and they’re definitely a band to keep an eye on in the months to come.
