Jesse Dayton's 10th studio album, The Outsiderwas recorded amidst a non-stop tour somewhere on the road between Atlanta, Denver, Nashville, and Austin. The album was mixed by Grammy® award-winning engineer/producer Vance Powell (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Jack White).
"The Outsideris a lot like my previous album The Revealer, but even more stripped down with some sweet acoustic guitar songs and some raw electric guitar work.”
All the influences are there; the George Jones-inspired singing on "Changin' My Ways," the Outlaw country twang of Waylon and Jerry Reed on "Belly of the Beast," the angst and energy of The Clash and X on the hillbilly protest song "Charlottesville," and the deep east Texas blues and Cajun rockabilly of "May Have To Do It (But I Don't Have to Like It)" and "Hurtin' Behind The Pine Curtain." While there are many different sides to him musically, it all rolls into one big hybrid that Jesse Dayton has been honing his entire career.
