Clayton Bellamy has amassed many accolades during his career. He is a five-time Canadian Country Music Award Winner, a SOCAN Songwriter of the Year winner, and in 2006 he took home the JUNO Award for Country Album of the Year for his band The Road Hammers’ self-titled debut.
Born in Bonnyville, Alberta, Canada, Clayton started playing guitar at age 12 on a Yamaha FG-75. He quickly graduated to electric guitar, and by the age of 17 he was playing and touring as a solo artist.
Clayton is not only the creative force behind The Road Hammers, but also Black Mountain Whiskey Rebellion (one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Bands to Watch”) and his new hard rock outfit, The Congregation.
Whether he’s touring the globe, or writing and recording for all three bands, Clayton always keeps his REVSTAR RS820CR, RS502 and his custom-painted LL16 ARE by his side.
His latest release, “Clayton Bellamy and The Congregation” -- just released on Anthem Records to rave reviews, and featuring the single "Commandment #11”-- is available on Spotify and Apple Music now!

Designed to race from coffee shop to coffee shop on the streets of London in the 1960s, Café Racer bikes were high-performance racers stripped down to their bare essentials, but still showcasing the style of their owner. The RS820 captures that spirit of total focus on performance, maintaining Yamaha’s unmistakable attention to detail, for a guitar that can’t be fully appreciated until it’s taken out for a test ride.Other Colors Available
Japanese minimalist style is simple to describe but hard to capture. With just enough of everything you need, and nothing that you don’t, the RS502 is exactly what it should be–beautifully simple.Other Colors Available
The L16 features all-solid Rosewood/Mahogany back and sides with hand-selected premium Engelmann Spruce top.
