Winner Best Album 2018…
…Thank you Colorado Blues Society Members’ Choice Awards for voting our new album as the best of 2018. Cass Clayton Band is so grateful for the love, support and inspiration. Big News – we’re already working on another new album, to be released in 2019. Much of the early part of this year has been spent writing and recording at Far & Away Studios (Boulder, CO) with producer, Taylor Scott.
We’re looking forward to sharing a new-school soul record, combining influences of blues, funk, jazz, gospel, rock and singer/songwriter genres. Taylor’s virtuosic guitar playing and composing skills combined with Cass’s love of lyric writing and soulful style continue to drive the creative process. In a day where record label deals are rare, we can say that the advantage of being independent is our lack of limitations of genre. That freedom allows us to tell intimate stories in the way that makes the most sense for each song. Your feedback from the last album told us you were digging it, so we hope to do right by you again! Please check our music on the “Store” page of the site if you haven’t already.
Join Cass at an upcoming show and sign up for the newsletter for upcoming events. Thanks!
What’s coming up…
ANNOUNCING! Cass Clayton Band has a lot of shows coming up featuring various musical guests (Taylor Scott, Dann Burke, Michael Reese, Todd Smallie, and others). The new CCB album is getting some excellent reviews and is being played on radio stations across the region and in Europe. Cass would love your personal feedback as well, so please get in touch on the comments page and tell us your thoughts about the record. We genuinely want to know what you think, what your favorite songs are, whatever is on your mind!
Cass Clayton and Taylor Scott are honored and to be among the top scoring songwriters in the Colorado Music Business Organization (COMBO) Annual Songwriting Competition, with 4 songs in their top scoring entries. Each year they select 20 top songs, 18 of which are featured in a compilation CD. The judges don’t know the name of the song, who wrote it or who performed it. They judge only on lyrics and melody, not the production quality. So to have 4 songs from the new album in this mix is really exciting!
