With an understanding beyond his years, Clayton began studying both music, and his musical icons of the past: including Johnny Cash, B.B. King, and Billy Gibbons with Elvis Presley remaining his performance and entertainment standard. It is with this strong work ethic, that Clayton desires to perform and entertain.
Clayton is also an avid NASCAR® fan with #14 Tony Stewart, and the #9/#24 car Chase Elliott, being his favorite drivers. He is an absolute die-hard Chicago CUBS fan, and Bass-Pro-Shops aficionado as well as a certified golf caddy and novice golfer. He frequently studies cooking methods on his IPad, while listening to Johnny Cash on his vinyl record player. BBQing and baking are two of his favorites. Clayton is currently in the 10th grade, and home schooled through the University of Nebraska to meet his touring and recording schedules.
With 10 singles already under his belt, and his musical accomplishments recognized by the industry, Clayton was voted into The Recording Academy at the age of 13-years-old.
I started singing when I was 3 years old. My Papaw wanted me to sing Elvis, so my sister uploaded "Hound Dog" on my Ipod shuffle, and I would sing for my family.
I was just "born loud." I sing and play rhythm guitar with my twin brothers, Johnathon and Bryce, 18, in our rock band REBELMANN. In 2010, John had a guitar recital and Bryce was the drummer. They needed a singer, so my mom threw me up on stage with them. That was the first time we played together as a band.
REBELMANN has written 10 singles. We recorded three in 2012 and three in 2013.
