We headed up to Konscious Studios to meet up with The Clayton Joseph Scott Band for this WELO show. The guys, Clayton Joseph Scott (guitar and vocals), Austin Nicholsen (bass guitar), Daniel Konscious Krieger (lead guitar), Chris Steel (drums) were great and had a great time laying down “Hey Hey Hey” for this featured WELO show. They have a very irie spirit amongst them and it is clearly reflected in their music. Below is some bio info on CJS band, along with their FB page, iTunes page, and website. Enjoy!

Clayton Joseph Scott was born on the west side of Los Angeles in Venice, California. He began his music career at the age of two when his life long musician father bought him a guitar and the “Born in the USA” vinyl. Clayton set up an American flag and turned a garbage can upside down as a drum proclaiming he wanted to be Bruce Springsteen when he grew up. Since that time Clayton’s musical journey has taken him around the world playing music across Europe, Asia, and the United States.
During a trip to India in 2008 Clayton began writing and performing his own material. When he returned to the United States, indie label Sweet Mercy Records (www.sweetmercyrecords.com) based in Ashland Oregon discovered Clayton while playing a show at a wine bar. The label established a working relationship with Clayton developing five of his songs they featured on his debut maxi-single “Heavy Rest” released through Sweet Mercy in early 2010.
An opportunity to work on a motion picture soundtrack in early 2010 with Serafini Films brought Clayton to Los Angeles. The transition back to his native city proved fertile ground for the young singer songwriter as he began to compose a plethora of new material and built a fan base in Los Angeles. Clayton’s most current compositions have earned fans up and down the west coast playing in various cities across California and Oregon. Currently Clayton is pre-production on his next album at Konscious Studios in Santa Monica.
