"Redemption" Shows Off McElvain's Writing, Singing Prowess

Jul 13, 2018

Life has taken many twists and turns for Gainseville's Tom McElvain, and he's used all those life experiences to craft the songs on his powerful new record.

As a songwriter, McElvain has written for artists like Cody Jinks and made a name forself as an excellent composer. Ray Wylie Hubbard saw promise in McElvain and mentored him, but when it came to making his own album, he needed the stars to align just right. Working with producer and music collaborator Joe Austin, McElvain recorded a series of songs about life's highs and lows on the album Redemption. McElvain spoke with KETR's Matt Meinke about the new record and much more.
