Bio

I am a musician, a poet, a humanist, and an eclectic.

Life is emotion. Whether it's confusion, anger, sorrow, love, or enchantment that I feel when I write a song, the expression of that emotion, in raw and colorful form, is what I'm all about. In general it's a passion for life and an awe of beauty that drive and focus me.

As for live performance, I enjoy both solo acoustic and band gigs. I work with, and have learned from, some of the most incredible and gifted musicians in the country, and I love to have them electrify, funk up, and spice my songs. In particular, I work a lot [at home, on stage, and in the studio] with bassist Dave Randon and producer, drummer, percussionist, and musical artist Ben Makinen.

Musically I think there are bits of Dave Matthews, Ani DiFranco, and Robert Smith of The Cure, all of whom I admire in every musical way.

My first CD, "December", was an all-acoustic melodic journey from the color and bliss of "Summertime" [the first track] to the cold dark uncertainty of "December" [the last track].

My follow up CD, "The Underworld", is also a conceptual piece, but one that is electrified, funked up, more rhythmic and covering a wider range. Whereas "December" was a story of descent and growing darkness, "The Underworld" is a story of ascent and a return to light, a trip from "The Underworld" [the first track] to a place where I "Shine" [the last track].

"The Underworld" is nearly completed at International Sound Productions in Denver under the brilliant engineering and production work of Steve Wiest and producer Ben Makinen. It will be available on CDBaby.com around January 2006. Soundclips are are on my web site, claycabe@aol.com.
