Cass Clayton Band is the culmination of a songwriting and composing collaboration between Cass Clayton and Taylor Scott that led them into the studio to explore their combined influences of blues, funk, jazz, gospel and rock. The resulting CD (released in June, 2018) is a rocking new-school soul album with a lot of inventive sounds and unexpected twists. Taylor’s virtuosic guitar playing and composing skills combined with Cass’s lyric writing, smoky 3-octave vocal range, and soulful vocal style have led to music that transcends the limitations of genre and grooves like nobody’s business.
Cass was recently voted as one of the top three vocalists and top three slide guitar players in Colorado (Colorado Blues Society, Members’ Choice Awards, 2017). She has been lead vocalist and slide player for Hogback Blues Band, 7th Heaven, HERmonious, and currently for CC and the Riders. Taylor is an international touring guitarist/singer/songwriter who has toured throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe with both the Taylor Scott Band and blues legend, Otis Taylor.
