Currie Wayne Clayton Jr FLYAH INTERVIEW


 1. So tell us about your upbringing:  How did you get into making music?

 I am "Musician born, American Made"!  I was born in Burlington, NC and named after my musician father, Currie Wayne Clayton Sr. 
 I was always surrounded by music.  My musical career began as a drummer at the early age of 3.  Winning several musical contests in my earlier years, my love for guitar came at the age of 14.  My talents are 100% God given and I am totally self taught in all the instruments I play . . . guitar, drums, bass, fiddle, keys.  Singing, writing and producing have all come naturally to me as well.

2.  Touring the United States is a Major accomplishment.  Can you tell us about your first tour?
I moved to St. Louis from Delaware in the summer of 1993.  My GF at the time landed a job as lead vocalist for the lounge band '7th Heaven' so I packed my things and made my way to St. Louis.  I eventually met many of the bands that performed at one of the biggest night clubs in Sauget, Illinois - Pops Saloon!  It was notorious for bringing in top talented bands.  I was scouting for my next band to be a part of and join.  It so happened a great band called John Doe was looking for a guitar player and singer.  My GF and I both joined and started touring the Midwest and South East for about 3 years.

3.  So how did you meet the band Molly Hatchet?
My friend "Booger Man" was a tattoo artist and he was giving Molly Hatchet's bass player, Andy McKinney, a tattoo.  He told Andy about me and he said he wanted to meet me.  I had a Harley and borrowed one from my dear friend for Andy to ride. Andy and I went riding all day.  A week later I received a phone call from Bobby Ingram, lead guitar player and owner of  the band, for an audition at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, SC.

4.  I understand that you're the co-owner of Cabin Fever Studio Productions so tell us about your operation and how does it contribute to you being a musician?
Being a musician means that you have to have a great ear and you are usually on a shoestring budget.  LOL  So you learn how to record your own music such as a 4 track to a cassette to a 6 track to a zip drive and Roland VS2400 to Spectral aka computer recording which brings me to now . . .  We have a Hybrid Studio Analog To Digital!  I have been recording since 1987.  I always dreamed of owning and operating a Top Notch Studio and GOD has put me smack in the middle of one!  A to the Men!  So now I have the luxury of recording myself without rushing and putting things out there that I wished I would have fixed!  It's also great to have other musicians come in and record and be a part of making their songs and dreams come true!  I love being a producer and engineer as well as an artist/musician.

5.  I see that you are a multi-talented artist.  Does music run in the family for how did you acquire such gifts?
It is all GOD given talent.  I am self taught on all the instruments that I play.  It also runs in the family!  My father, Currie Wayne Clayton Sr., was a Guitar/Harmonica/Piano player and vocalist.  My mother, Betty H. Baron, was also a singer, mostly in the church chorus.  Both of my sisters, Joyce and Jill Clayton, are musically talented as well as many of my cousins!

6.  So tell us about your latest project and the creative process behind it.
I've been recording many of my songs that I never got around to recording.  Owning the studio, I have time to do it "my way, my time".  I record as it comes to me, listen and step back from it and give it a chance to breathe.  Then I will go back and change what I feel needs changing or rearranging.   I have also been working on the studio, putting new gear and pieces in place.

7.  So what do you have planned for the future?
With GOD'S hands in it, the sky's the limit!  I am hoping to be a big hitter and be a major part of  the music and recording industry as Producer/Engineer/Musician/Vocalist and to land several songs as #1 hits on the charts!  (Thus the name for our record label, Charted Records!)  

8. Any last remarks?
You have to believe it to receive it! Facebook: Instagram:

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  Den Edie Flyah interveiw So could you tell us a little bit about your upbringing in Ohio?  I was sent to guitar leasons by my parents when I was 10 years old. My uncle lived with us back in    Ohio then and he played the drums. I grew up with a Rock band practicing in my basement.    I did not know it at the time but this little town I lived in knew how to rock. When did music become your main interest and what lead you to take music so seriously?   When I was 13 I saw my first rock concert. It was The kinks (one for the road tour.)    It changed me instantly. Suddenly that was the only thing I wanted to do.    To this day I'm still doing it. My guitar obsession had just started and    I did take some music theory lessons as well. I began learning how to create music or write a song.    I recently worked with two clasical Violinist. A Saxsaphone player and a Pianist. The Music theory lessons did pay off as I was able to talk to them in a launguage they understood.  Being a Singer
