Jesse Dayton's story reads like a “who's who” of American music. In his debut memoir Beaumonster, Dayton reveals the stranger-than-fiction encounters and outlandish experiences that have ensued across his wide-ranging career. After sneaking into nightclubs to play gigs in his youth, 18-year-old Dayton and his trio began packing clubs and theaters across Houston, Dallas, and Austin. His first solo record—featuring great luminaries like Doug Sahm, Flaco Jiminez, and Johnny Gimble—hit #1 on the Americana Radio Charts, and then he was off to the races, touring the world as an opener for punk legends Social Distortion, The Supersuckers, and X, and helping with arrangements and guitar on The Supersuckers’ biggest selling record, “Must’ve Been High.” While doing press in Nashville, he caught the attention of Waylon Jennings and was whisked off to Woodland Studios, where he was greeted by none other than Johnny Cash, who tells Dayton: “We’ve been waiting for you.”

After that meeting with “The Man In Black,” Dayton’s ride across the entertainment industry, traversing genre and format, has only gotten wilder. Whether it’s playing guitar on records and film with the likes of Cash, Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Johnny Bush, and Glen Campbell; writing and recording soundtracks for horror director/rockstar Rob Zombie; directing Malcolm McDowell and Sid Haig in his own horror movie; or filling in for the iconic punk band X’s guitarist on a massive 40-city US tour, Dayton is down to make his mark-making Beaumonster a uniquely entertaining tale that will impress new and old fans alike.

The companion album finds Dayton performing songs written by the many talented musicians/songwriters featured throughout the memoir. “Burning House of Love” is the first single from the Beaumonster companion album. Written by John Doe and Exene Cervenka of X, the song originally appeared on their 1985 album Ain't Love Grand!. The track features Dayton on vocals and guitar, with his longtime touring band Chris Rhoades on bass and Kevin Charney on drums. Talented singer/songwriter Brennen Leigh delivers background vocals.
