Echoing from the crossroads of twang and tremolo, Rich Layton & Tough Town weave a swampadelic soundtrack for a last chance Saturday night. Your table waits under the broken neon in a dive bar out on Salvation Road. The new album, "Salvation Road," was co-produced by Rich and LA-based Terry Wilson, an ex-Texan, A-list bass player, producer and long-time music director for Eric Burdon.

With 10 original songs and a psychedelic ‘60s cover, Salvation Road is high octane American music roaring down 11 musical lanes. It’s The Yardbirds jamming with Elvis, The Stones on a week-long bender with Delbert McClinton at Muscle Shoals’ Fame Studio, and Tom Waits in a Memphis juke joint, backed by the growl of an amplified harmonica. Making the influences all his own, Rich Layton takes on every song with the conviction of firebrand rock and roll preacher determined to save your soul - and his.
