Family gatherings always involved music, guitars and singing. When he started singing duets in church with his brother, they had to stand on an apple box to see over the pulpit. He was often involved in local church and school activities where his music talent was needed. While in the Navy, he played with bands on the West Coast, Hawaii, and in the Philippines. Since then, his music has taken him from San Diego to Prince Edward Island and from Seattle to Pensacola. Clyde?s lyrical style is both funny and intensely deep, written from a lifetime of experiences, humor, family triumphs and losses. He is well loved by many, both far and near. His song, ?Have you ever been to Pearl, Texas? was used as the theme song for Nystic Films documentary ?Unbroken ? The Pearl Blue Grass Circle? which has garnered several film festival awards including Best Documentary at Texan Dance International Film Festival and Alaska International Film Festival.
