Rhythm guitar player, harmonica player, and supporting vocalist for The Red Clay Strays. He began as management and handled booking for The Strays along with writing. Drew was added to RCS when he found he could find a natural harmony with Brandon Coleman. A harmony that pairs well with the rich depth of Lead Singer, Brandon Coleman. Alone, you hear sounds of writing influences such as Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton and John Prine.
The front man for The Red Clay Strays started singing in churches and for his family growing up in Turnerville, AL. He wails on tales of love, pain, hope, and redemption crafted by his brother Matthew Coleman and RCS songwriter Drew Nix. The energetic leg-kicking singing of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Chris Stapleton is an unbelievable combination held in this singer. An extraordinary, rare, one-of-a-kind sound.
Doc Leytham was raised in Mobile, AL. He was taught how to play guitar at a young age by his father who was a missionary and evangelist. He learned “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Victory in Jesus”, and Under the Double Eagle”. He went to medical school at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. He is a US veteran and he served six years as USAF medical officer. Through many hardships and personal life struggles, he turned to songwriting and music as a way to deal with a variety of challenging and stressful situations. His songwriting echos the heart and soul of his experiences and it translates into his own “country blues” style of music. Dr. Leytham still practices medicine and continues to see patients while he waits for a call from Willie, Hank Jr., Jimmy, or some other more talented performer who might just one day want to record a song written by a country doctor from “L.A.” (Lower Alabama).
