David Clayton-Thomas Say Somethin’!
Fri Nov 08, 2019

The day when music was a driving force for social change is not over… the outspoken young songwriter who gave us “Brainwashed” and “Spinning wheel” in the sixties has struck again.

Now a master songwriter at the peak of his powers, he trains his eye on life in the 21st century. say somethin’ is a searing look at the times we live in and a fervent prayer for the future. songs that confront the most important issues of the day…  climate change, immigration, gun control, politics, the justice system.

David Clayton-ThomasFearless and confrontational, the clayton-thomas lyrics are sharp and to the point. written with disarming honesty and a wicked sense of humour… a satirical musical portrait of the crazy, upside down, politically charged world of 2020.
