There seems to be a trend of acoustic artists finding their way slowly onto our iTunes and Spotify, but not all of them will stay there, and a few of them wont even get a second listen.
This is absolutely not the case when you first listen to Lester Clayton. The lead vocalist of the name sake collective, propped up brilliantly by his trio of musicians, Lester excites the senses with a gorgeous mix of acoustic folk and reggae. The band is completed by a bassist, violinist and drum-box playing rastafarian. His reggae-infused brand of "Street Folk" with fiddle hooks and groove bass is fresh, poignant and extremely infectious.
Lester Clayton, have forged their own unique sound with the ingenious concoction of wonderful instruments, held together by very strong vocals and guitar from Lester. With the group currently supporting the biggest name in pop right now, Ed Sheeran, it wont be long before thousands will be listening to the sounds of Lester Clayton.
Tottenham born, Clayton has played over 600 gigs, and gained fans everywhere he has played, trawling through the summer festivals, as well as supporting Just Jack and Pete Doherty. After completing the Ed Sheeran tour this month, Clayton will be stepping out on his own for his headline tour, playing the Waterfront Norwich, King Tuts Glasgow and The Borderline London.
