Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Clarence Spady
Described as “the future of the blues” by Bill Dahl (Chicago Tribune) circa 1996, Clarence’s sound has become more distinguishable now than ever before. He plays with a depth and sensitivity that can’t be taught, effortlessly combining blues, jazz, funk, latin and rock into his own unique style. His moving guitar play, rough street-edged vocals, songwriting and live improvisations are demonstrated with every performance.
Born, Clarence Sloan Spady on July 1, 1961 in Paterson, NJ., he’s been performing professionally since the age of 5, ever since his Aunt Bea found him playing “High Heeled Sneakers” on his father’s guitar backstage one night at his Uncle Fletchey’s R & B Band show at a local Elks Club. He’s been startling people with his immense god-given guitar playing ever since. In short, Clarence is one of those artists that can actually move people. He brings out a range of emotions in you throughout his performances and recordings.
