Cass Clayton is known for her smoky 3-octave vocal range and big, bluesy voice, as well as her slide guitar playing.
She was recently voted as one of the top three vocalists and top three slide guitar players in Colorado (Colorado Blues Society, Members’ Choice Awards 2017). She’s been breaking out into crossover music with blues, funk, soul and rock as her vocabulary on an upcoming CD, to be released in May of 2018.
Cass Clayton Band featuring Taylor Scott, is the culmination of a songwriting and composing collaboration that led Cass and Taylor into the studio to record their own originals in 2017 and into the present. Their complementary music tastes began to evolve into music they both loved that didn’t fit in any particular box. Their combined influences of blues, funk, jazz, gospel and rock came together in an undefinable way.
Based on the belief that good music doesn’t always fit snugly into a single genre, Cass is taking her blues foundation and stretching to make music that is contemporary and inspires her and hopefully those around her.
