About Rich Layton & Tough Town

Swampadelic Soundtrack

Rich Layton & Tough Town

 

Rich Layton & Tough Town are keepers of the flame for American roots music. It's high octane swamp rock, country, rockabilly and the honky tonk blues echoing from an East Texas roadhouse. The band has a signature sound that sits right alongside such eclectic artists as Marty Stuart, Shooter Jennings and Lukas Nelson. Each set takes audiences for a ride from Sun Studios to Chess Records, and Muscle Shoals to Bakersfield. Rich's original songs fit seamlessly into the mix, weaving his Gulf Coast roots through tales of rock and roll redemption, harmonica-fueled and swampified.

 

Together over a decade now, the band has released three albums and performs at major festivals and showcase clubs throughout the Northwest.  Each year, Rich joins Lyle Lovett as a special guest when Lyle tours the NW. Rich also has played on Portland tour stops by his long-time friends Lucinda Williams, Buckwheat Zydeco (R.I.P.), Dale Watson and many more.
