In 2019, Cass Clayton Band is already looking forward to an exciting year. She and producer, Taylor Scott, have been diligently working in the studio on another all-original album, titled Play Nice, coming out on July 19. Cass was recently selected as a voting member of the Recording Academy, and also co-founded SHE-EO, a coalition designed to help women musicians in Colorado to solve business challenges together.
Cass Clayton Band is known for its genre-bending fusion of rock, R&B, funk, blues and soul, which has a distinctly contemporary feel. Because they’re not tightly bound to a single genre, they’re known for tailoring their setlist to the audience and “letting it flow” as the show progresses.
In 2018, their self-titled record won ALBUM OF THE YEAR in the Colorado Blues Society Members’ Choice Awards, and Cass has consistently been voted as one of the top slide guitar players and vocalists in the state. In February, 2019, she was featured on the cover of RECORDING Magazine with a 4-page article that featured innovative vocal recording techniques at Far & Away Studios. Most importantly, Cass Clayton Band believes in the power of music to bring people together for a higher purpose. Yep, we’re talking about love!
