Clayton Edwards is a West Texas-bred electric/upright bassist who's currently based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area & on tour with Texas Country artist Mike Ryan. While on tour, he has opened up for acts like Miranda Lambert, Koe Wetzel, Morgan Wallen, Hardy & Riley Green while playing stages like CMAFest, AT&T Center & the Grand Ole Opry.
A self-described "pocket player," he is as comfortable on a festival stage as he is during a worship service. Clayton is known for his strong stage presence, playing FOR the song & being able to adapt to any genre or situation.
My best friend started a band & we needed a bassist. I've been playing ever since & have been lucky enough to make it my profession.
Don't compare yourself to others, keep learning & don't worry about making mistakes because that's where you learn the most.
Playing new places, seeing/experiencing new things & giving the crowd a show.
Noble DI, Aguilar DB 599 & Argo Distortion. All these pedals have tone for days & can be used in any band/situation. Very versatile combo.
I like to take a little break from playing every now & again to recharge. Reading a good book, getting out in nature, seeing art, spending time w/ my family, or going to a great concert is a fantastic way to recharge.
It used to be heavier bands like Deftones, Rage Against the Machine & Primus. Now it's more like: Paul Cauthen, Sturgill Simpson & Dirty Loops. It used to be all about cool bass lines & how heavy the song was. I still love to hear a great bass line, but now it's MORE about how that fits w/ the song, the story & how it grooves.
I typically play "Standing on Shaky Ground" or the melody of "Careless Whisper ." haha.
80 P-bass Special & Alpher Mako 5 string. The P-bass was my wife's grandfather, who was a Nashville Session player & played for people like Porter Wagoner & Dolly. The Alpher was one of my dream basses I thought I would never get & now I'm actually an endorsed artist!
Alpher Mako 6 String & an Aguilar DB751 bass head.
