“With a voice loaded with smoky soulfulness, it’s easy to see why Cass Clayton Band is landing on some of the best stages and festivals across the country and in the UK. CCB has become known for its tight chemistry and high-energy stage presence. Clayton is a songwriter’s songwriter, lyrically and musically, and she takes care to speak her heart and mind and share her journey with the listener.
Her new album, PLAY NICE, pulls together disparate influences but ties it all up in a framework that would seem as at home in Muscle Shoals or on Beale Street as it would on Michigan Avenue or Sunset Boulevard – and that’s no accident. Known for their non-denominational approach to music and genre, CCB blends rock, R&B, funk, blues and soul into their own contemporary sound.
The band’s 2018 album won ALBUM OF THE YEAR 2018 in the Colorado Blues’ Society’s Members’ Choice Awards. In addition, Cass has been voted as one of the top 3 slide guitar players in Colorado and top 2 vocalists. Her new album, PLAY NICE, has already won two songwriting awards since its July, 2019 release. The album reached #1 on the national R&B Album Chart in December and was up for Grammy consideration.”
