Singer Clayton Chaney performs “Contemplative Americana Folk-Rock” at the Coffee Gallery Backstage – Pasadena Weekendr

Singer-songwriter Clayton Chaney will perform with violinist, pianist and mandolinist Philip Glenn at the Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena on Thursday, April 28 starting at 8 p.m.

An Arkansan turned Angeleno, Chaney’s songs seem to chronicle an ever-evolving coming of age on the West Coast. He draws on the old sounds of Roger Miller, Elvis Presley and The Band while indulging in new influences like Dawes, John Moreland and Jonny Fritz. His sound is what you would call “Contemplative Americana Folk-Rock”.

As the former frontman of indie-bluegrass band The Show Ponies, Chaney experienced big-city and small-town America from the stages of the United States. His first EP as a solo artist, “Thinking These Thoughts”, debuted in January 2020. Since then, he has released singles accompanied by videos to create a catalog of memorable songs that are both humorous and hard-hitting.

Philip Glenn is Chaney’s former bandmate on The Show Ponies. He will play violin, banjo and mandolin.

Tickets for Thursday’s concert are $20.
