Step aside Tom Morello. It is time to make room for 20 year old Cetan Clawson.
Yes, we believe it's possible for a young Detroit native to become a threat to a such well-established guitar player. And yes, we're a little floored by that fact as well. But Clawson
has such diligent guitar skills that it is hard to believe that he is only just breaking into the music scene with his debut album, White Heat
, which was recently released.
grew up not surprisingly revering the work of Stevie Ray Vaughan and his backing band, Double Trouble. Imagine his thrill when drummer Chris Layton, who has worked with Stevie Ray, decided to play on and produced two of Clawson's tracks ("Everyday Blues" and "I Wanna Try"). With the tip of the cap to past musicians and his own natural ability, Clawson is definitely destined to become a breakthrough artist that will hopefully introduce the blues to fresh ears the world over.
If in fact you're still not convinced, check out Clawson's
rendition of the Star Spangled Banner...daringly similar to the work of Mr. Jimi Hendrix himself. Though not quite playing the stage and Woodstock, Clawson
is gearing up for shows in Austin Texas in support of White Heat
. We can only imagine the senses evoked when witnessing this guitar man do what he does best, live. - Lonnie Nemiroff
