I perform music from the 50's to the 90s. I do mainly covers with some (link hidden) music is perfect for a cocktail hour for a special event or wedding. I am also equiped to entertain a restaurant lounge or speak easy type setting.
I am trained in West Indian folk music as well as reggae. Storytelling is one of my passions and most recently composing music for Poetry.
I have played at large venues from Harrahs Lake Tahoe to Sacramento Memorial Auditorium.
My fave quote is" Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul"

Born on the island of Barbados, Clemon grew up in a world where music
is rooted in all aspects of the culture. He discovered his passion around
age 9 and has been playing guitar every since. At age 21 he embarked
upon the journey to America to pursue his musical passions and has
centered his career around the world of events & production. From
technical direction to backstage management to outstanding live
performances, Clemon never turns down an opportunity to engage a
crowd and loves sharing his music.
With a variety of diverse experience and culture, his music is a melodic
infusion of the West Indies, Seattle’s Alternative Rock and New Orleans
Jazz. His voice carries along a sultry style with a raspy touch that makes
his sound unique like a folk singer, with a wide array of covers and originals.
