Red Clay Strays Announce New Album “Made By These Moments”


The Red Clay Strays are already taking the country and roots world by storm with their throwback Sun Records-inspired sound. Their new album produced by Dave Cobb and backed by RCA Records only promises to up the ante even more. Made By These Moments will officially arrive on July 26th, with a new song “Wanna Be Loved” out now.

“’Made by These Moments’ shines a light on overcoming the battles we face in life like loneliness, depression, and hopelessness,” says singer, frontman, and guitar player Brandon Coleman. “We hope you listen and recognize that our pain has a purpose.”

Brandon Coleman is joined by Drew Nix (electric guitar, vocals, harmonica), Zach Rishel (electric guitar), Andrew Bishop (bass) and John Hall (drums), who formed the band in 2016 in Mobile, AL. They all huddled with Dave Cobb at the Georgia Mae studio in Savannah to record the new album, with songwriting contributions from Brandon Coleman’s brother Matthew. Brandon’s other brother Dakota also contributes to the band’s new single.


The Red Clay Strays announced earlier this year they had signed to RCA Records (a division of Sony), after previously announcing a deal with Thirty Tigers.

“Over the last 6 months, it has become very clear to us that we’re going to need all the help we can get in keeping up with our rapidly growing demand while also reaching new fans all over the world,” the band said. “After many meetings and much praying, we all truly feel that RCA is the best choice for us! We can’t thank y’all enough for the love and support you’ve shown us over these last seven years! We wouldn’t have made it this far without y’all. We’re excited to see what the future holds!”

The news comes as The Red Clay Strays continue to be one of the hottest bands on the touring circuit, selling out the Ryman Auditorium on three straight nights, selling out Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth, as well as a host of other club dates across the country. The band was also recently tapped to open a massive show for The Rolling Stones, and will be playing some of the biggest festivals this summer. They’re definitely one to catch in smaller venues while you still can.

Made By These Moments is now available for pre-save/pre-order.
