Good Bar Attender Jeff Clayborn Makes Impact with New Album
With unmistakable Texas persona embedded into an authentic country sound, Jeff Clayborn sports southern swagger from his signature low-brimmed hat to his Rod Patrick endorsed cowboy boots. Down home roots transcribed into honest-to-goodness musicianship, Clayborn creates a twist on traditional country for a modern era.
Sheer sincerity and appreciation for faith and family are apparent in Jeff Clayborn’s newest single, I Reckon, which follows a son’s journey in finding the man he seeks to be. Written by Billboard Top 10 artist Grant Maloy Smith, I Reckon portrays nostalgia through storytelling with bold, earnest vocals and top-notch production by Grammy Award-Winner, and eight-time nominee, Chuck Ebert.
With a heart the size of Texas, Jeff Clayborn’s charitable involvement is highly prioritized. In addition to performing benefits for veterans, police, and underprivileged children and families, Jeff always finds a way to give back. Whether building specialty bikes for disabled kids or raising awareness for animal shelters, one thing’s for certain – Jeff Clayborn hopes to touch as many lives as possible through his work and good-timin’ message.
I Reckon will be featured on Clayborn’s highly anticipated new album, Good Bar Attender, coming August 2019. Fan favorites, such as Top 10 Independent Country Radio single, Caddy in the Campground and International hit track Last Ones to Leave will also appear on the project.

"Love, Lust And Other Wreckage"
John Vento is often called a chameleon in the Pittsburgh music scene; and, while his critics may use the term as a pejorative, Vento views it as a compliment. He understands that they’re motivated by the frustration of their inability to lock him into a specific musical style. After all, the front man for the high-energy, hard-rockin’ bands, The Businessmen, and the Nied’s Hotel Band, is also known for his introspective, brooding solo recordings.Rather than a drawback, however, Vento considers such diversity to be among his strengths; and his fans agree. They relish sharing his tumultuous trek toward achieving his artistic vision, which he accomplishes by channeling a blend of eclectic influences through his own, raw emotions.Helping to engineer the roller coaster ride is a stout core of collaborators, including John Randall Fox, Buddy Hall, Tim Hadley, and Frank Ferraro, along with renowned playwright/lyricist, Amy Hartman. Many members of this crew have been with him for more than a decade; and it’s easy to understand why, as Vento consistently showers them with appreciation and accolades. Though a one-of-a-kind performer, he professes a great distaste for the word, “solo,” insisting that, “Without my collaborators, I would not have accomplished anything.”That’s no surprise to those who know him, as he truly is a humble, loving, and grateful person, who treasures his family and friends. Certainly, that comes across, loud and clear, in his honest, from-the-heart songs; and that, undoubtedly, is another quality which endears him to his fans.
John’s 2019 MTS release is “Love, Lust and Other Wreckage.” His single, “Rainbows And Lightning” reached the Top 20 on iTunes Canada charts, receiving national and international airplay and charting. John is a January 2019 Billboard Magazine Emerging Artist.
