Clemons Road / Bio

Florida is a place where the water meets the woods. A place that has as many farms as it does beaches. A place where children are raised on Hank Williams Jr. and Bob Marley. It is in this diverse state that Clemons Road calls their home. Blending Country music with an island feel or vice versa, the band always starts a party as soon as the first note rings! Pulling their influences from Sublime to Alan Jackson, Dave Matthews to Jimmy Buffet, or Lynyrd Skynyrd to Zac Brown Band, Clemons Road can keep all audiences heads bobbing and feet moving.

When Grammy award winning music producer Cliff brown (lead vocals/guitar) started making phone calls to start the band he didn't pull any punches. "I had been writing songs and playing music for other bands and artists and this time I just wanted to do what I want to do. Play the music that me and my friends loved playing and not limit ourselves to any barriers", Cliff explains. The first person he called was lifelong best friend and bandmate Eric Long (bass/vocals). Eric and Cliff have traveled the country playing together in various bands such as "Soulness" and "The Cliff Brown Band". Next came Matt Richardson (lead guitar/vocals), a local guitar extraordinaire whose reputation for being a jack of many trades proceeds him. Cliff also landed Jason Baker (fiddle/piano/vocals). Jason has played professionally with many western swing and bluegrass acts nationally. Through connections with the local bluegrass scene, the band was introduced to Gavin Baulac (banjo) a bluegrass/progressive picker that can hang with the best of them. Kenny K (pedal steel guitar), has been working on major label songs for Cliff over the past five years. Josh High (electric guitar) has been playing with members of the group for over ten years and gives the band their full sound. Solidifying their huge sound is Chris Williams (drums). Chris grew up with the boys, right on the corner of Clemons Road, and has played in many bands throughout Florida.

The musical result is much like the place where they live. Putting all of their influences into a blender to make a concoction that everyone can drink! Cliff puts it this way, "We want to be a band that crosses cultures and breaks age barriers. We want to make people feel good and give them songs to use for the soundtrack of their lives!"
