Clutch: So, you think you know Clutch, right? They’re a little punk? Well, yes, but there again…they’ve a hint of metal? True. However, don’t they also have a touch of the stoner about them? Sure. And while we’re at it, let’s not forget the southern rock influence. Come on, you know what that means. Clutch are genuine individuals, icons for musical excellence who confound the modern desire for putting everything into neat boxes. They’re a classic rock band with an ultra modern sweep.

In the virtual two decades, since they first came to everyone’s attention, the Maryland marvels have constantly evolved and revised their music, never standing still long enough for anyone to put a critical saddle onto their thoroughbred ideals – this bronco ain’t ever been broken in, nor broken down.

From the ‘Pitchfork’ EP in 1991, Clutch have set standards, never followed trends. They’ve released a succession of urgently inspirational albums, from 1993’s ‘Transnational Speedway League: Anthems, Anecdotes And Undeniable Truths’ through ’95’s ‘Clutch’, onwards to ‘The Elephant Riders’ (1998), ‘Pure Rock Fury’ (2001), ‘Blast Tyrant’ (2004) and ’05’s ‘Robot Hive/Exodus’. But their moment has truly arrived with new album ‘From Beale Street To Oblivion’ – a record that won’t so much fit into a new era in rock, as confidently define it.

“This is probably the most ‘live’ album we have recorded,” enthuses vocalist Neil Fallon. “We went out for a few weeks, and played the music on the road. So, when we went into the studio, all f us knew exactly what was going to happen - a first for Clutch. I don’t know why we haven’t done it this way all along, it’s so much easier.

”We also recorded the basic tracks directly onto tape. Nothing digital in there at all. We haven’t done that since ‘The Elephant Riders’. And this record has a few more bluesy elements than has been the case in the past, but nothing so blatant that it could be called alien to what we do.”

Together, Fallon, guitarist Tim Sult, bassist Dan Maines, drummer Jean-Paul Gaster and organist Mick Schauer have created a masterpiece, one that certainly hugs the band’s illustrious past, but takes it even further. It has a retro warmth, wrapped up in a contemporary blaze.

“This time we chose Joe Barresi to produce the album,” continues Fallon. “Why him? Because he has produced some great sounding records in the past, for bands like Kyuss, Tool, Melvins, Queens Of The Stone Age, to name but a few. We were based at Sound City Studios in Los Angeles. It took three weeks to record, and one week to mix. Joe actually mixed ‘From Beale Street To Oblivion’ without us being there, as we had to bail to support Motorhead in the UK and Europe. That’s an indication of how much faith we had in the guy.”

It’s a faith that’s been remarkably well rewarded. Here’s an album that floods the room with riffs, melodies, vitality - and grooves.

“Musically, we’ve become much more of a rock ’n’ roll band now, as opposed to being a metal or hardcore one,” reveals Fallon of the way Clutch have developed. “Our style is riff oriented, with a swing. It’s never been a calculated move; we just followed our instinct, and that is leading us closer to those bands to whom we listened in our childhood. Bands which are now termed as ‘classic rock’.”

When you listen to this album, those names will be obvious. Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Faith No More, Kyuss, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blue Cheer, Motorhead...all are referenced, but never emulated. This is heritage music re-distributed by a 21st Century attitude. Further proof of a continual growth, as this band plot its course by the stars, not by every passing light.

Clutch now deservedly belongs among the elite. And they’ve got a crucial sense of humour. Be honest, great rock music should make you smile – that is mandatory. It also helps that there’s been a business stability around these five guys for some while, as Fallon explains:

“This is our third album for DRT Entertainment (following on from ‘Blast Tyrant’ and ‘Robot Hive/Exodus’). We’ve never previously done more than two records in a row for any other label, so this is a new territory for us! A lot of that is because this is a smaller company, and they understand what the band is about.”

While their past is impressive enough, the present and future for Clutch suddenly looks even brighter.

“Where do we fit into today’s scene?” laughs Fallon. “I really couldn’t tell you!” With this new album, it’s more a case of where everyone else fits in with Clutch. ‘From Beale Street To Oblivion’ is gonna take them to greater heights than ever before. Welcome aboard – enjoy the trip. The wheel is about to be re-invented.

Tyler Bryant: Tyler Bryant lives for music. Passionate about expressing himself and connecting with others through his songs and sounds, Tyler moved to Nashville from Honey Grove, TX when he was 17 to write songs and start a band. He has pushed the musical limits of guitar, vocals, and performance, and has captured the attention of the music scene with his spectacular talent and rare showmanship.

 Tyler Bryant, currently 21 years old, is a guitar prodigy who has shared the stage with Aerosmith, Jeff Beck, Heart, REO Speedwagon, Paul Simon, BB King, Pat Benatar, The Arc Angels, Vince Gill and many others. At age 15, Tyler won the Robert Johnson Blues Foundation's New Generation Award, which recognized him as one of the most promising new artists on the music scene. He has also performed at Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago, and was signed by John Huie at Creative Artists Agency on the spot, after his first showcase in Nashville. 



Tyler recalls a musical turning point at age 11, when he walked into a music store in Paris, Texas and heard 63-year old bluesman, Roosevelt Twitty, on guitar. “He was playing a Lightning Hopkins song,” Tyler says. “He was just sitting in the corner of Holly Bond’s Music store, and was singing and playing with such emotion that something translated deeply, and I wanted to understand. I knew I wanted to play. Whenever you hear someone with that much soul, when they really believe what they are playing, it’s so inspiring.”



Tyler’s musical influences include the inspirations of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, The Black Crowes, and Jeff Beck. 



Tyler, along with Beck, Santana, and Slash, is featured in the award winning film,
“Rock Prophecies,” which is directed by John Chester, and produced
by Tim Kaiser (Seinfeld and Will & Grace). “Rock Prophecies,” is now airing nationally on PBS, and is available to watch online at Netflix and iTunes. Thousands of people across the world have been playing Tyler’s song, “Who I Am,” since its release on Guitar Hero® 5. 



Tyler has been busy recording and songwriting with some of the music industries best. He released his first EP, “My Radio” in March of 2011 and then released his most recent album, “From The Sandcastle,” in late September of 2011. 'Shackles' a track from "From the Sandcastle", was the iTunes' Discovery Download. The album was also featured in iTunes Rock on the Rise section for over eight weeks. He just finished recording his first full-length album with Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Mutemath, Counting Crows, Elvis Costello). The first single from the new album will release in June with the full album being released at the end of the summer. Tyler also recently contributed to the score for the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter soundtrack. The movie, produced by Jim Lemley and Tim Burton, will be released on June 22 by Fox. 



Last year Tyler announced a new band name, Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown, as he wanted to recognize his band in everything he does. The Shakedown consists of Graham Whitford (Son of Brad Whitford from Aerosmith) and Belmont grad Caleb Crosby. Tyler and the band embarked on their first headlining tour last summer and continued touring well into November. The band only paused for the month of October, while Tyler opened for Jeff Beck on his Canadian and US Tour. Tyler & the Shakedown are in the middle of their second headlining tour, which will include tour dates all around North America. With a fearless obsession for his art, Tyler Bryant is advancing his music without limits.
