Duane Cliatt hails from Camden South Carolina, a small historic town in the center of the Palmetto State.
"From the age of about 4 or 5 years old I remember dreaming of one day becoming a country singer but I didn't dare tell anyone," Duane says. His musical journey would however begin with piano lessons at the age of 8. "I didn't like it to much but it seemed everyone else did so I stuck with it till I started playing drums in the middle school band."
Duane still kept his singing to himself until his first perfomance at a high school beauty pagaent. "Man, I was nervous as all get out but that crowd response opened up a new drug for me that I just had to have."
The day after Duane graduated high school, he packed his car with cloths, guitar and the songs only he knew about and headed out to see what the world of music was all about. "I spent some lonely years out there playing wherever someone would let me, but I learned all the lessons you can't be taught with out the personal experience."
His adventures finally landed him in Nashville, TN where he met manager Mike Schelling and producer Jamie Tate. "I finally found the right team who gets me. The guys who have the know-how to get it done."
Duane and his team are very proud of the first single, "Sweet And Simple" and are looking foward for all that is to come.
