CLYDE is about music that makes you want to tap your foot, bob your head or shake your butt. Add lyrics that you can relate to and you've got "Porch Stomp" music. It's all original music written by Douglas Clyde Martin. Our bag of tunes spans 30 or so years and sounds as lived in as we are. We use guitar, slide and mandolin for melody and leads. A unique cable washtub bass several percussion instruments , a cajon played with brushes and a 5 gallon bucket kick drum adds to the rhythm.
There are 5 band members and 5 voices. Clyde handles the lead vocals and is the songwriter. Josh, Lisa, Eddie and Jay Dee sing harmony and backup
If it's not fun we don't do it and if people don't like us then we are in the wrong place. As one of Clyde's songs says, "It's too late to sell out now."
