Whether a full band with horn section, a backyard three-piece band or a coffee-house environment, what makes Clay Mottley stand out are the songs themselves.  While they sound both contemporary and accessible, they just as easily fit in a playlist of singer/songwriter era of Jackson Browne and James Taylor. Born and raised in Virginia and living now in Richmond, Clay’s musical roots run deep from touring choirs and pit band in high school and college musicals to open-mic nights and local and regional concerts.  The two albums released under Clay Mottley Band each garnered glowing reviews in Billboard, citing Clay as a “clever, catchy and ever-inventive songwriter who delivers originals that sparkle like sunlight on gemstones” and as having “a master craftsman’s touch for melody and words that are unfailingly substantive and intriguing.” “Music is as much about the song itself as it is the performance.  I think the song has to be strong on...

Over-throwing the musical and artistic establishment of the United States through underground circulation of music, shows, and cooperation. A revolution of the heart and mind. Justin Payne tours the land bringing with him a troubadour’s soul and a seasoned musician’s skills. Justin Payne spends a lot of time observing, contemplating, writing, singing, and playing with a mission: to undermine contemporary American culture with guerrilla tactics and street-level, face to face performances. None of the tried-and-true methods of exposure and advancement for artists are untainted by corporate cash, and thus cultural cancer. When the game is rigged, and all of the roads to sharing your art and a modicum of social and financial stability are blocked to you because you’re either too smart, or not a size 00, the only answer is to cut your own path, to revolt and burn down what is not working anymore, just like those that came before us in equally desperate times.
