ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Curtis Clay has been singing in front of people since he was eight years old and he doesn't plan on stopping any time soon. It all started in a little ole church in a very small Texas town and it was truly just the beginning. By the time he was in high school, he was the lead singer for a gospel group that opened concerts for all of the major Gospel acts that came through Austin, Texas at the time. Shirley Caesar, The Mighty Clouds of Joy and The Williams Brothers are just a few of the performers that he shared the stage with during this time in his life. He attended Sul Ross State University and continued performing as a solo singer and things really started to happen for him. He opened for everyone that came through the small college town, including Texas Legend Tish Hinejosa. He got married during this time and he and his wife Annette had their first child and headed to California. Curtis continued to sing and write his songs and developed a loyal following in southern California performing several nights a week. This is during the time that he met legendary lead singer Ali Ollie Woodson of the Temptations, and was given the opportunity to perform the classic "My Girl" on stage with the Temps on numerous occassions. Curtis has performed for the live audiences of several TV shows, including The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Living Single and The Arsenio Hall Show. He's performed the National Anthem for both the Los Angeles Clippers and Lakers, as well as the San Diego padres on several occassions. In 1995 Curtis was voted Top Male Vocalist in the state of California on the Amateur level at that time. After meeting with many record company A & R representives and not getting the deal that he desired, he had to take a long look at himself and his music and figure out what it was that set him apart from everybody else. One A & R Rep told him "that his pockets should be fat as a writer alone, but it' just not what we're looking for. I really hear some county in all of your soulfulness".That truly opened his eyes to who he really is. He and his family of six headed back home to heart of the Lone Star State. After several years of performing all around the world with a well known vocal group, his debut solo album is finally here. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the Country Soul of Curtis Clay.

Simply AWESOME! The next Charlie Pride.
This is simply the best CD or Album I've heard in a long time. It's hard to pick out a favorite, but Blacktop Dreams is the song right now that I can't get out of head. When will the next CD be available?

Mike

I've listened to your CD 3 times since our class reunion...it's AWESOME. "Daddy's Girl" had me crying all the way to work and "Smells Like Rain" is incredible! IT'S ALL GOOD! Great to see you and I'll be at "The Ranch" next time you sing. Keep in touch!!! Go T'dale.

Liz Toussaint

I love it!!!
I truly love it! Love the voice, love the message, I can relate (obviously) but I have not heard "Country Soul" conveyed the way I see it until now. Thanks for being you. We need to start a movement!

AMAZING!!! One full spin and you'll be hooked...guaranteed!
To: My Friend & Unbelievable Artist Curtis Clay!

Curtis, got my copy of your CD "A Chance I Gotta Take" wednesday of this last week... I'm not sure how many times it has played through in it's entirety? I'm listening again as this is being written... What a voice! What a talent! What sounds! ...and to think it came from the tiny town of Lytton Springs, Texas! A testament to your and Donny Brewer's abilities. Curtis... your music is so very very honest...your writing ASTOUNDING! There's not a sleeper anywhere on the disc! In fact, every track has (unbelievable) chart potential! Now, this next statement is straight from the heart... "Nearly twenty-five years in the music business myself with an absolute love & passion for nearly all genre's of music... your album is (the one)! Truly the very best album I have ever come across in my 43 years of listening!"

Now, how do we go about getting it the exposure it so richly & desperately deserves?

Mr. Curtis... I'll some it up in short... ~W O W~ !!!

You keep in touch...

GOD Bless you and your family...

It has to be only ~UP~ from here!

Your True Friend and A Loyal Fan,

Ps. ***** 5 stars don't even come close! This disc deserves 500!

I wanted to choose a song to sing in front of people myself...but I couldn't cho
Mr. Clay is an awesome singer and he inspires me sooo much...it's just that I don't have the courage to spread that inspiration.

AWESOME!! One of the best CDs I've heard!!
The music, lyrics, voice, and melody of each song is outstanding! This CD is one of my favorites, and I can listen to it all day long. I can't wait for the next CD!

An excellent mix of country and R&B. Pick up a copy today!
"Country Soul" is a powerful collection of songs that cross a number of genres, including country, R&B, and pop. In crossing several genres while highlighting Curtis' strong vocals, the CD underscores one of the advantages of making a CD without the constraints of a big recording label. Curtis' memorable vocals remind us of Lionel Richie, although most of the songs are of a more country style. The solid songwriting provides hook-filled choruses and counter-melodies. The lyrics are well thought out, reflecting on life and love. If you enjoy hearing a talented vocalist sing powerful country, pop, or R&D songs, you will enjoy this CD. Pick up a copy today!
