Biography

"I was Born on April 3rd, 1985 in Houston, Texas. I have one sibling, my younger sister of 2 years. Until the age of 10, I lived in the same North Houston suburb known as Spring. In 4th grade, I moved to a small Texas town known as Magnolia.
That was about the time that I picked up guitar.

I always listened to my dad play, and I casually thought that I'd like to play as well. Then I was
faced with the challenge of getting over my
frustrations of not being able to learn it
overnight. I was an impatient kid, but weren't we all? In all honesty, I probably quit playing guitar
3 different times, before I finally picked it up and
things just started to click. Once they did, I was
hooked. Highschool rolled around, I brought my guitar
to school every day and played anywhere
that I could. I
remember not even going to lunch because I would be practicing
in the music room instead. It was a great time in my life. For the
first time, Id'd found something that I was truly passionate about.

I stayed at Magnolia High School all 4 years, and during that time
I always toyed with the idea of writing. A friend and I even made a CD with a few songs that I had come up with and sold it around school for 5 dollars. Senior year I had the hardest time deciding where I wanted to go to school. I wanted to try and pursue music... I know now that I was nowhere close to
ready, and I would have been in for a rude awakening. Luckily, I ended up going to Texas State University (in San Marcos) in 2003.

My experiences there were invaluable. The very first show I ever played was in San Marcos at a little
coffee shop on the square known as the "Coffee Pot". I was scared to death. I'll never forget it.
I started to play around town at open mic nights, etc, and really found myself enjoying it. My
sophomore year, I became
friends with an SRT (sound recording technology) student at TexasState, and we decided to
record some of my songs.

One thing led to another, and after alot of learning, trial, and error,
I had compiled 7 of what I felt were my best songs. Seriously, the
very next day, I was out trying to get people to listen to my CD. I
registered jonathanclay.com and got to work. Im now doing music
full time, and I'm loving every second of it. Please stick around for
the ride, and I want to thank everyone who supports what I do.
