Fri May 22, 2020

GRAMMY Award winning and Canadian Music Hall of Fame artist David Clayton-Thomas is heralding the hard work essential workers face, especially now in the time of COVID-19, with the release of a new video for “Long Night” — available now.

“This is a song for the unsung heroes,” the Blood, Sweat & Tears frontman shares. “I wanted to say thank you to the paramedics, firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses, essential workers…

“I wanted to say thank you to all of the folks that put their lives on the line every day in dangerous and uncertain times.”

“Long Night” originally appeared on Clayton-Thomas’ widely acclaimed 2018 release, MOBIUS — what was then the master songwriter’s first studio album featuring original songs in nearly a decade — and showcases the artist’s long-held respect and appreciation for those working tirelessly on the front lines.

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.

Four of Canada’s most creative musicians collaborated with David on the writing of the songs… Lou Pomanti, Eric St Laurent, Davide Direnzo and George Koller… each bringing his own unique musical personality to the compositions.
