“Guitar strings tie past to present Sheryl Clapton makes memories with her acoustic “root” music Singer, songwriter, musician and producer Sheryl Clapton calls music a tool. “It is such an important door for memory, for peace of mind and relaxation,” she says, and Clapton would know the true value of memory. Clapton suffered a brutal attack in 1997 that robbed her of her memories; music is a door to her past. Unconscious for two days, Clapton woke with amnesia. She lost all memory of her family, friends and life events and couldn’t even multiply small numbers. It took government records and FBI help to piece together what used to be Clapton’s life. “The only thing I remembered was to play music,” she says. So she did and still does. Her philosophy of music acting as a door for memory and peace permeates what she calls the “root” music that she and her 12-string bring to Columbia. Clapton describes her eclectic sound as “country, folk, rock — it depends on what yo”
“Indie River article, Bill Bruedigam (editor) Sheryl Clapton ~ Natural Ambience Ambient, the word causes many arguments in the music world. Music that creates and ambience, melodic, mood creating like soft lights, etc.. So, what's it take to create ambience? Synthesizers? Eastern instruments? Flutes? Too many arguments, but one thing is for sure, someone has managed to do it with an acoustic guitar and a beautiful voice; Sheryl Clapton. Personally I wasn't sure it could be done. But one long night of working online in Santa Fe I received and email asking if I would listen to some music for consideration on my Radio Santa Fe station. Sure, I always go listen, that is how I have found some of the best music I know of out there. When I arrived, I first listened to "To Earth One Day," the "demo" version. I was hooked, and I had experienced what I consider the first acoustic voice/guitar combination to ever create ambience. Again, that is my opinion, I am not here to debate "what is ambient,”

“ChapmanJames about Sheryl Clapton: A voice crying in the wilderness... Sheryl Clapton has a plan ... total eradication of war and its estuaries. It is not a new method she has in her arsenal. Music. But, the way she uses it is quite unique. Besides having a magnetic voice and personality that invites every soul with which she comes into contact to listen, she spends so much time making us feel good about even the little things that are truly important to us, that we have little desire to contemplate fighting with one another. I think she is on to something. She writes of the "So Sweet"ness of horses, grateful feelings while traveling on the road "North of Sante Fe", and a transfiguring "New Life" when one changes to a more spiritual paradigm. But, among her unique war fighting creations is a piece called "Missing From Our Shores" where Sheryl lays out a simple vista of one openning a book of history and the overpowering images and thoughts it provokes. Through these offerings, and with”
