Thanks for visiting my online home! Take a look around, listen to some tunes, do a little dance, and play along if you’d like. At the moment, I’m probably somewhere in the world doing what I love… Making Music!

Don’t forget to sign the email list. I’ll be sure to invite you to a show or let you know about an exciting new project. I look forward to keeping in touch and hope to meet you in person someday soon!

All the Best,

Clay Ross ::  Matuto :: Ranky Tanky
