ARTIST INFO - boxtalent.com/ross-clayton/
Ross Clayton is a Country singer from Chicago, IL. But don't let his Yankee roots fool you, he is a Country Music singer, born and bred. Ross' music is a bittersweet blend of modern Americana Country and old-school twang. Drawing his inspiration from a wide variety of artists like Zac Brown Band, George Strait, Bob Seger, Justin Townes Earle, and Ray LaMontagne. The list goes on in a number of different directions, from Western Swing to underground Hip-Hop. He doesn't limit his interests to one genre or style of music.
Ross began his singing career in High School, as Orin Scrivello in the Musical 'Little Shop of Horrors'. In college, he and a group of friends started performing locally under the name Buckshot Trio. They wrote and recorded a number of original songs and had a modest, but loyal fan base in the Monmouth/Galesburg, IL. area. Following graduation from Monmouth College, he moved back to Chicago in 2012, where he decided to continue to pursue his singing career and formed The Ross Clayton Band and releasing the song "Hell raiser & Heartbreaker".
After two years of playing the Chicago bars and music festivals, Ross made the move the Oklahoma City to continue his music career fronting the band Amarillo Junction. Although it was an exciting tour with Amarillo Junction, it was short-lived. A few months after joining AJ, he made the decision to pursue his aspirations of becoming a solo artist. Which brings us here, to present day.
"Obviously I want to live the dream, make it to the big time. But the most important thing is that I get to tell stories, and sing my songs to people that want to hear them. I just want to be a country singer, at any level. That's all I've ever wanted to be."
