Clayton Chaney draws inspiration from the old sounds of Roger Miller, Elvis Presley, and The Band while indulging in newer influences like Dawes, John Moreland and Jonny Fritz.  You could call his sound “Contemplative Americana Folk-Rock.”  As a native Arkansan  and long time resident of Southern California, Chaney’s songs seem to reconcile a traditional upbringing in Middle America with an ever-changing coming-of-age on the West Coast.  As the former co-lead singer of The Show Ponies, Chaney has experienced America’s big cities and small towns from stages around the country.  His debut EP “Thinking Those Thoughts” will be released in January of 2020.
