For the Hopeful & Heartbroken
This marks Clayton Carr's first solo album release. Call it eclectic . With styles all over the place, Carr brings this album together with a voice and sound that is hard to categorize.(maybe like: Kaskade, Milosh, Imogen Heap). Sweet melodies and harmonies fill this album of 20 songs, (including the hidden outro song at the end). many of the songs are made with electronic, as well as acoustic elements. Carr, known locally as Claydo, -co-founder of Sick Lake Records and producer, has been making beats and vocal arrangements for artists and companies for the last 8 years. Mostly selling his hip hop/rap productions, he has gained a name for himself in that arena by either performing or recording with acts like: Jay Tee, Scarface, Eric Sermon, Baby Bash, WuTang, Keith Sweat, and others. 'for the Hopeful & Heartbroken', is a vocal album, and brings together many of the styles of music that have been an influence in Carr's life. Covering breaks/ house/ downtempo/ elecro rock/ jazz r&b/ ambient/ soul/ pop/ slo house/ spiritual folk, and more, this album is, to say the least, diverse, and will have something for everybody. Carr plans to release many more albums over the next few years, including at least one more in 2009, so if you like this one, be looking for more.
