Hi friends, thanks for reading this bio.

I was born on the Westside of Los Angeles in Venice Beach, California. I began playing music when I was two years old and my dad bought me a kid sized ukulele and the “Born in the USA” vinyl by Bruce Springsteen. The music of troubadours like Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Bob Marley, served as the soundtracks of my youth and from a young age, the art of story telling through song became an idea that would shape my approach to music to this day.


Here are some thoughts others have said about my music:


“Clayton’s songs follow in the steps on the path of modern roots/rock performers like Michael Franti, Trevor Hall, Xavier Rudd, and, John Butler; to deliver a positive message, while invigorating audiences of all cultures to listen and dance with a purpose.  His catalogue of original songs range from deeply reflective soul/folk ballads to danceable world-beat arrangements that continue to win fans around the world.”
