About Clayton Joseph Scott
Joseph Scott was born on the Westside of Los Angeles in Venice, California. He
began his music career at the age of two when his life- long musician father
bought him a guitar and the "Born in the USA" vinyl. Clayton set up an American
flag and turned a garbage can upside down as a drum proclaiming he wanted to be
Bruce Springsteen when he grew up. Since that time Clayton's musical journey
has taken him around the world playing music across Europe, Asia, and the
During a trip to India in 2008 Clayton began writing and performing his own material. When he returned to the United States, indie label Sweet Mercy Records (www.sweetmercyrecords.com) based in Ashland Oregon discovered Clayton as he played a show at a wine bar. The label established a working relationship with Clayton developing five of his songs featured on his debut maxi-single "Heavy Rest" released through Sweet Mercy in early 2010. JPR 89.7fm got an early release of heavy rest and began playing "8 Long Years of War." Music from "Heavy Rest" can be heard on radio stations throughout Oregon and Northern California including San Francisco.
An opportunity to work on a motion picture soundtrack in early 2010 with Serafini Films brought Clayton to Los Angeles. The transition back to his native city proved fertile ground for the young singer/songwriter as he began to compose new material and build a fan base in Los Angeles. Clayton's most recent compositions have earned him fans up and down the west coast playing in various cities and at festivals across California and Oregon. Currently, Clayton is on the road promoting his new record MORE LOVE released June 2012.

easily gains influence from the pool of talent she's immersed in. Bellamy's
voice is her strong point with a timbre similar to Norah Jones. Michelle pulls
from all sorts of styles of music but her music can be likened to Bonnie Raitt,
an edgier Joan Baez, Paul Simon or Ray LaMontagne.
Michelle Bellamy's main focus is creating community! Every month she hosts a benefit concert called The Rogue Fam Jam. Michelle coordinates a wide range of local musicians to come jam music and help raise fruition for a different local non-profit.

Michelle is continuing to host these jams and is anticipating taking the jam on the road to connect with other communities to help raise funds needed in those areas.
