What was the biggest fun during the making of the last album?
The best part of making “Who the Hell is Clay Howard?” was being able to work with Brynn Arens, of FLIPP fame. Even though I’ve made almost 20 albums over the years, this was the first to have my name, and not the name of a band on it. SO, working with Brynn allowed me to really make these songs everything they could be. Brynn can play almost any instrument, and has great instincts as a producer and we used both of those things on this record…a lot. He also pushed me to work on my lyrics.
If we want to know you, which song do we have to listen to? And why?
That is a tough call. “Never Give It Away” was written to give my kids a positive song with inspirational lyrics, and I like to think that represents me well… but, “Biscuits Ain’t Rising,” is the most autobiographical song on “Who the Hell is Clay Howard?” since it tells the story of true incidents in my family history.
The music industry has changed a lot (or so they say). What did it bring you? And what not?
When (and how) did you discover you had this huge rock voice?
I’ve been singing for over 26 years, and when people say something like that, it still humbles me. Thank you.
She tells you she will decide on a 5-song-mixt tape if there is going to be a second date. Which 5 would you put on?
