Songwriter Don Clayton composes songs that are raw and emotional, entertaining and honest, much like the human experience. His uplifting, and at times humorous, stories of life, friends, family, love, joy and beauty, pay homage to a lifelong passion for music.
From sentimental ballads to swampy Country Rock romps, Don's music focuses on themes that all of us intrinsically connect with - love, family, and living in the moment. And although the subject matter of Don's songs are enough to connect his music to mass appeal, it's the unyielding groove - the kind that unknowingly causes foot-tapping and headnodding - that makes his songs noteworthy.
