Clayton Lee is not the same guy in the same hat singing the same song the same way. He sings from the place only the man who wrote the songs could ever sing them from.
Is it roots music, Americana, rock, country, blues, jazz, or swing? You'd have to say the broad category is country, but Clayton Lee's music transverses and blends the genres. It's real music, nothing contrived to match the flavor of the month. It's an honest, genuine party time foot stompin', howl at the moon, dance with the girl 'til you drop, laugh 'til your side hurts, cry in your beer, story tellin', e ticket ride you'll be so glad you took the time to listen to. If you don't believe it, check out the samples.
Clayton took advantage of a misspent youth by gaining the proper experience both musically and otherwise to entertain your socks off. He started playing for drinks and tips in bars at sixteen. He went to work in the Gulf of Mexico as a high pressure pipe welder on offshore oil platforms and learned how to really "pass a good time" from the fine people of South Louisiana. The offshore work, and "passing a good time" became the inspiration for many of his songs.
Clayton left the welding and iron working trades several years ago, and now devotes his time to his family and his music. Merle Haggard once said if you want to be a success in the music business your songs have to hit people in the heart, the head or the feet. Clayton hits you in one or more of those places with every song. Dancers will love the fact that two of the cuts on this recording are full blown dance cuts. But not the kind with a cheesy computer beat. No, we're talking about a real first rate human rhythm section mixed right and groovin' hard. The lyrical content is also refreshing. You'll find songs about diverse and interesting characters and situations: a female spirit who lures a man to his death in the swamp, the gun control issue, a wife who hides her husband's things from him, compulsive gambling, eternal love, lost love, passin' a good time in Louisiana, and more.
These songs span the full spectrum of human emotion, with some interesting story telling. Why don't you "pass a good time" with Clayton Lee, and order the record now?
