Stephen Clair
With a Ray Davies-like vocal delivery and mountains of songwriting credits, Clair's gritty and provocative tunes are kicked into high gear with the muscular and stirring chops of his band, the Pushbacks.

Clair just spent this last month in the studio working on his new album, with producer Malcolm Burn at the helm. Grammy-winner Burn has produced records for Iggy Pop and Emmylou Harris.

“Stephen Clair has literary, story-telling songs like Chuck Prophet, with a range of feeling from Steve Forbert to Alejandro Escovedo.”—Nan Warshaw, Bloodshot Records

“For fans of literate singer-songwriters who balance the weight of the world with a bit of humor ...”—All Music Guide

“An artist with a singular style and the confidence to conceive it.” —Lee Zimmerman, No Depression

"It takes balls, literally and figuratively, to sing so knowingly about a vasectomy. But in the swaggering, amped-up title track to Love Makes Us Weird, Stephen Clair does just that, turning a four-syllable word into a tight rhyme with the line 'Who are we?' " –Chronogram Magazine

Claude Butch Morgan is a triple threat on the Texas music scene; he is a songwriter, storyteller, and guitarist who is constantly pushing his limits as a performer. He honed his chops as a guitar player in various USO bands while in the military during Vietnam, then came home to the San Antonio area and became known across Texas for his lead guitar skills and his energetic performance style. He found his songwriter groove at The Kerrville Folk Festival and was a finalist for New Folk in 2005 and 2008 and a winner of the Wildflower Performing Songwriters contest in 2004. A “Singer/Songwriter of the Year” nominee at the Texas Music Awards in 2012, Morgan continues to grab audiences with his songwriting and storytelling, punctuated by the taste and tone of a world class guitarist.
Morgan’s 2013 album, Dry, is an extremely personal look into Morgan’s life and history. Co-produced with Chris Gage at Moonhouse Studio in Austin, Dry was recorded live in the studio with Trevor Doak Morgan (drums) and Robert Robar Adams (bass). While the musical approach may be pared down compared to other projects, the songs are quintessentially Claude Butch Morgan...winding in and out of heartbreak, humor, smart lyrics, and elevating melodies. He plans to spend 2013 touring Texas and beyond to bring the new album and a live show like none other to Morgan fans old and new.
