Recording artist and Houston resident, Clay Melton helps his hometown in the extended aftermath of a storm that frightened a nation.
Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Rockport, Texas, back in late August of 2017 as a category 4 storm, bringing with it 130 mph winds and dropping up to 61 inches of rain, reports The Weather Channel.
The devastation that followed included flooding, death, injury, and a uncertainty for its survivors that left them wondering how they would ever recover. Many Americans pitched in to one of the many charities that made their rounds throughout our social media circles.
Clay Melton, like many, wanted to help. However, instead of pitching in to an online collection pot, he stepped up with the one resource he knows best: music.
“I wanted to find a way that I could help. I don’t have a big truck or a boat, but I do know that music brings joy and there are a lot of people that need our support right now.” said Melton.
Melton will perform with special guest Paleo Sun from 7-10 p.m. Oct. 26 at Hurricane’s Daiquiri Bar & Grill, 916 N Ocean Blvd, Myrtle Beach.
For the rest of 2017, 100 percent of all sales for Clay Melton’s sophomore album, “Burn the Ships,” will go to aid Houston’s Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Also, Paleo Sun will donate 100 percent of merchandise proceeds from that night to Hurricane Harvey Relief.
You can purchase a digital copy of “Burn the Ships” at Clay Melton’s Bandcamp page, and simultaneously do your part to help Americans in need.
