Jake Clayton BIo
From a childhood filled with stories of living in a barn and family members that have broken criminal records, Jake Clayton found a passion for playing music. That passion eventually took him out of the local bands in rural Missouri and placed him in the heart of Nashville, TN playing for some of the top names in the business. After 13 years Jake Clayton now has a huge list of musician accolades that includes performances with icons Brad Paisley & Keith Urban, shows at legendary venues like The Grand Ole Opry and Madison Square Garden, appearances on TV shows like Jimmy Fallon, Ellen, and The CMT Awards, and recording credits on chart topping albums and #1 songs.
During this time Jake Clayton fueled another passion for writing songs, recording music, and touring as an artist. In the past decade Jake has released multiple eps, albums, and singles; he has charted a song on the Music Row Country Breakout Charts and he’s had a video in rotation on multiple television networks. Jake Clayton has also traveled around the Country with his own band and has opened shows for hitmakers Jon Pardi, Granger Smith, Kane Brown, Cole Swindell, Colt Ford, David Allan Coe, Tanya Tucker, and others.
There’s still one major factor that sets Jake Clayton apart from most musicians and artists alike. Jake has an incredibly rare ability to play over 20 Instruments… very well. In short, Jake is a one-man spectacle with enough skills alone to equal a band of top musicians. On his own recordings, he writes and performs almost everything! Percussion, bass, guitars, dobro, fiddle, cello, mandolin, banjo, pedal steel, the list goes on. But not only is Jake the band, he glues it all together with a powerful voice that carries the lead vocals and the majority of vocal harmonies as well. Combine all these elements and you have one of the most unique Artists in the business.
Jake Clayton is a music machine running on all cylinders and he is building a style of his own. Because of that, no matter how you look at it, Jake Clayton rocks.
