Before we tell you about Christy Claxton as one of the best singer/songwriters out there today, we want you to know about her big heart. Claxton's concert series, "Bear Creek Concerts" has given way to two powerful projects, with Claxton as visionary and producer. The first was a compilation CD called "Peace From The Porch - Vol. 1", that raised a considerable amount of money for the American Cancer Society, and earned Claxton MTM's 2004 Musical Event of The Year at the Texas Music Awards. Following it's success, Claxton now brings us "Peace From The Porch - Vol. 2", an amazing compilation CD that will benefit agencies that support victims of domestic abuse. Please take a moment to listen to the song clips below, and remember that all proceeds are helping such great causes. Our hats off to Christy for taking on these issues.
It was never Christy Claxton's intention to be a "Texas" artist, but her connection to her home state is probably why this smart, powerful performing songwriter continues to wow the indie music scene. Claxton has a sound as big and diverse as the big country she comes from. Where she strays from the Texas mythology is in her undeniable intellectual observation of the world from which she writes and performs. Claxton writes about what is real. Her characters feel like someone we know, or want to know. Her observations are often deeply personal, and she carries it all with one of the finest voices in contemporary folk music today. No single comparison can be made because truly, Christy Claxton is one of a kind. As a performer, her charm and wit make her an instant friend and confidant to the audience. Then she takes the listener into her wonderful world of unforgettable characters, feelings, and ideas that not only stay in the memory, but linger in the ears of those who experience the trip. It is masterful performance, story-telling, and sharing, delivered with a vocal style rich with intensity, then intimacy, and then raw energy…whatever the song requires. To carry this magic equally on CD and through a live performance is rare. For those who experience Christy Claxton, the encounter is unforgettable. While it may not have been her intention to be tagged a "Texas" musician, Claxton wears the title comfortably. Her diverse influences from pop, country, and folk are evident in each track of her debut offering, "OUT OF NOWHERE." (Lavender Lounge) True Texas music fans find this a must-buy.
