Clay has been involved with music his entire life, performing with a myriad of artists and musicians, teaching drums and percussion, working as a songwriter, session player, recording engineer, and band leader in California, New Mexico, and now Colorado.
For many years he has combined his physical therapy skills with music to teach exercise classes using music and rhythm to school kids in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. Clay performs regularly with the REC Trio with fellow Stillwater instructors, Ryan McCurry and Evan Suiter. He also performs with Roby Overfield & the Breaks and The Durango Funk Collective. He lives by his mantra – “ never stop a good groove.”
