Gary Clement's recording career began in 1974 under the instruction of Mr. Allen Toussaint of Seasaint Music, New Orleans, LA and Buddy Killin of Tree Publishing, Nashville, TN. Along with best friend and manager J. Alfred Cook, Gary recorded "When is a Friend a Friend." Performing as a lifetime sideman with such artist as Percy Sledge, Candy Staton, Al Green, Clarence Carter, and Johnnie Taylor, Gary became a band leader and song writer for the late great Z. Z. Hill, writing his last single, "I'm Gonna Stop you from Giving me the Blues." Teaming up with songwriter and producer Jackie Avery Sr., Gary recorded various music at Muscle Shoas Studio in Alabama, and two songs with Yates Brothers & Sisters (YBS) of California, "I Could Love but One Girl," and "What goes around comes around." In 2006, with his own Generation Gap Blues band, Gary released two songs. "I'm a Blues Doctor," and "Eat where you sleep." Gary worked as an extra in Jamie Fox's academy award wining movie, "Ray." Now his latest single release on Clement Records is titled, "It's His Birthday-It's Christmas Tonight," and "Let me be your Santa Claus." Next, Gary plans to re-release his gospel album he previously recorded in 1998, "It's a Spirit."
