Music is everywhere: in the car, the clubs and even at work. The one thing that makes us notice a particular song or artist is if the song touches us, and for sorewsme, all it takes is a great beat. Clint Crisher is no exception. Crisher took time out from traveling all over the world to tell the Blade about his career and why he chose to reside in Orange County.

Blade: I understand that you have had great success in Great Britain.

Crisher: Oh, yes. Run Baby Run topped the U.K. charts on Sept. 23, 2007, and is still in the top five today. I am kicking off my Terrific Distraction World Tour at the Midem 2008/World Music Trade show in Cannes France in January 2008.

How do you react when people try to label you as a gay artist?

I laugh first. Then I say, "Of course, I'm gay, but really, it's all about the music, not who I am sleeping with." Usually when someone asks if I'm gay, I ask them, "Why? Are you?"

You are getting recognition in Orange County as an in-demand artist at clubs. How does that make you feel?

I am excited that Orange County is enjoying my music. I recently performed and shot my music video at club Friction at the Shark Club in Costa Mesa for my new remixed single "Spotlight," which was also featured at a fashion show at MPowerOC called Project Rungay. The only problem is that performing is difficult due to lack of venues that hire live performers. When I was living in South Beach from 2001-2002, I had my own show with fabulous dance sets and about 6,000 locals each Sunday at Crobar. Unfortunately, when Sept. 11 happened, most of the clubs and hotels closed. Since no one was flying, I had to shut down. That was the first place I had my own name as the headliner on the marquee. I'm looking forward to being back there for the Winter Music Conference in March.

That had to be rough, but I understand you have managed to rise from that setback.

Yes, I have. One of the branches that Crisher Entertainment has is publishing. When I sell one of my songs to an artist or a record label, I want to be in full control. Everything from my label goes through Clint Crisher Music publishing and I have come to realize that publishing is where the money is. You could say that "I" am gay owned. - BLADE INTERVIEW by Marcus Andrews


BY ASHLEY LOVE

"Spotlight" is the title of the newest single by openly gay musician Clint Crisher, and it's what this talented guy has stepped into. Crisher is being hailed as an up-and-comer in the world of "funk-dance rock-a-palooza." Combining stimulating lyrics with his soulful and gritty voice, Crisher's music has taken him around the world performing at Crobar Miami, the Billboard Music Summit, and even for the Queen of England.

With the release of Crisher's new album, Terrific Distraction, and a tour promoting the album, it may seem like Crisher has it made. However, life has not always been so remarkable for the emerging music sensation. Crisher's biological mother was a Las Vegas stripper married to an abusive man, who later went to prison for murder. Crisher was conceived during one of his mother's conjugal visits to his father. After his release from prison, Crisher's father gave the then 3-year-old to his former military buddy and his wife to adopt in Florida.

Crisher grew up unaware he was adopted and his adoptive family treated him very poorly. To escape, he turned to music, which he first fell in love with after singing "King of the Road" as a young boy. But as he got older, he found his adoptive family wasn't supportive and ridiculed him for being flamboyant. The young musician continued to put his efforts toward music though and after high school he married a woman. Although he loved her immensely, eventually he had to face who he was and came out of the closet. He is still good friends with his ex-wife, stating, "Love knows no sexualities." Crisher is now happily-partnered and resides in Orange County with his devoted boyfriend of two and a half years.

Being openly gay has caused few hurdles for Crisher, but he feels he has been blessed with the opportunity to inspire closeted artists to "come out" saying, "Make sure you don't lose sight of who you are. Your audiences will come with you if you are spiritually and emotionally yourself."

Bio

CLINT CRISHER

National Recording Artist
Billboard Breakout Artist- Top 40 CANADA National Dance Artist - Top MySpace and Reverbnation Artist

“He’s got it, mon!”
- Wayne Jobson, Grammy Award-winning producer

“Clint’s got the Funk!”
- Pepper MaShay

“He’s the next Superstar!”
- Harry Towers, Deet Promotions

“It can happen to you; to yourself be true...If you want it to, all your dreams come TRUE! Catch a rising star and you can go far! If you know who you are IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU!”
- Clint Crisher

“Breaker-One-Nine!” CLINT CRISHER is the new croupier of funk-metal rock-a-palooza dealing out hit after hit with impressionable well-crafted lyrics wrapped around crisply textured vocals that reflect his soulful nature and oh-so southern trailer park ways. Once on stage, CLINT’s youthful, lithe, and toned body comes alive… gyrating in a manner not unlike that of a young Elvis Presley. Possessing that special gleam in his eye, CLINT CRISHER has a fierce and seductive stage presence that will grip even the most discriminating of audiences.

CLINT CRISHER’s foray into the world of music erupted at age seven deep in the Florida everglades when he emerged as the front man in an alternative rock band called PAINTED SUN by winning a pencil fight with the band’s drummer. It wasn’t pretty, but not long after that CLINT CRISHER, as lead tenor and student director, lead his Florida-based Madrigal Singers to Westminster Abbey in London, England to perform for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and before members of Parliament-By jove! I do believe CLINT’s got the Funk!

Skilled in the guitar and trombone and just about anything he can wrap his hand around, CLINT CRISHER has since performed in the most celebrated venues in America such as the Crobar-Miami (headliner), the Web-NYC, Webster Hall-NYC (headliner), the 9:30 Club-DC, and Club Platinum-DC in addition to performing at outdoor concerts in the Nation’s capital in front of 250,000 people and at numerous festivals across the United States. CLINT CRISHER also performed at the Billboard Magazine Music Summit in 2002 (after signing a single to Cetacean Records) and recently at XM Satellite Radio’s One Millionth Subscriber party attended by Quincy Jones and a host of other celebrities. He was presented by ASEK Entertainment Group to a STAR SEARCH panel that found CLINT’s performance to be “very exciting, fresh and new.”

CLINT CRISHER is, however, getting it done on both sides of the Atlantic. In late 2002 , his song “Perfect World” soared into the Top 10 on the UK MP3 Top100 chart, climbing as high as No. 7 without the benefit of Grammy Award-winning producers Wayne Jobson and Brian Jobson (who are currently producing CLINT CRISHER) behind him-a testament to his songwriting abilities. Not only is CLINT CRISHER a true professional on stage as well as in the studio, CLINT CRISHER is a major star in the making and is about to set the music world on fire with the release of his second album “White Boy”- and that’s a big 10-4 good buddy!…as long as you want ta’ Funk that is!”

Clint moved to Los Angeles during the FUNK project where he began Crisher Entertainment. "Terrific Distraction" was recorded with 15 new songs on the album and Spotlight the first single with "The Remixes" release made Clint a Billboard Breakout Artist was released in November of 2007. In late 2007, his song “Run Baby Run” went straight to No.1 on the Top MP3 Top 100 chart and was released by his company Crisher Entertainment. Spotlight rocked the dance clubs and put them on fire with the 2007 release of Spotlight “The Remixes” being promoted by Bobby Shaw who has won "BEST INDEPENDENT DANCE PROMOTER" National Dance Music Awards WMC 2007 and 2006. Bobby Shaw, who has achieved more than 100 Number One Billboard Dance Chart Toppers in the past 7 years and made Clint a Billboard Breakout artist with Spotlight the first single from "Terrific Distraction" The 15 songs CD has already had THREE NUMBER ONE SONGS. Run Baby Run (Top 100 Mp3 in UK) Dr. Grip (Broadjam Rock/Funk) Tinker Bell Spell (Broadjam Rock/Funk)

In 2008 Clint and Crisher Entertainment released The Hot Boys World Volume 1, 2 and 3 and Run Baby Run "The Remixes" which is currently climbing the billboard charts while Spotlight "The Remixes" is still playing on heavy rotation at over 100 radio mix shows around the states everyday. The re- mastered and newly released 7 mixes of It Can Happen to You landed at #38 on the TOP 40 Canada National Dance Charts for the week of December 8 - 14, 2008 compiled by the top ZIP DJ members across Canada reported by ZipDJ.com and TOP 40 Canada National Dance Charts.
