STEPHEN CLAIR TRIO


American songwriter Stephen Clair has been making records and touring for 20 years. The New Yorker’s found love at WFUV, MTV’s The Real World/Road Rules and shared stages and bandmates with artists like James McMurtry and Vic Chesnutt. Performing Songwriter Magazine calls Clair “the kind of citified troubadour that the roots songwriting world needs these days.” Now he’s touring with a Rock Trio, in support of a new album that isn’t quite out yet, featuring a stack of well-observed songs that push Clair’s songwriting standards further, and feature the muscle of his own and his bandmate’s serious skills. As we’ve come to know, “Clair handles a guitar pretty well,” says Nashville Scene. And while the San Antonio Express rightly deemed him a fearless performer, the Village Voice summed it up: “Clair is laid-back – yet very New York, proving that’s possible.”
