Bio

Somewhere there’s some college kid at a bar listening to a band when he should be home studying or getting a head start on that term paper. That kid is probably a lot like Clay Thrash was, beginning a long journey that calls him to the point of obsession despite his family’s best efforts to see him into a ‘respectable profession’. “I remember going to every show I could, Reckless Kelly on Tuesday, Cooder Graw on Thursday, Wade Bowen on Friday and Cory Morrow on Saturday would be a hell of a week and other wise unproductive.” Clay explains. “That was how it all started, some freshman kid sneaking into bars soaking up a different kind of knowledge”, he says with a laugh.

He spent as much time as he could soaking up that knowledge listening to Country greats like George Strait and Merle Haggard to Americana singer/ songwriters like Ryan Adams and Hayes Carll. “I loved anything that was good” joked Clay “I didn’t limit myself to any one kind of music and I still don’t. I like to take the best of everything and make it my own.”

Before long Clay was setting up speakers in the corner of some smoky dive tuning up his guitar and shaking off nerves, and he hasn’t turned back since. He’s spent the last eight years or so perfecting his own unique blend of country music and rock and roll with a voice that is a pleasing and unmistakable blend of Radney Foster and Lyle Lovett with Tom Petty Drive. Countless shows and songs have lead him to where he is now, with the release of his debut self titled album.
