___________________________________________
Perpetually (& these days somewhat redundantly) being called a 'New Dylan', perhaps the heaviest comparison there is in the world of singer/songwriters, and definitely something to be taken with a grain of salt (or sand...) the release of his newest record "SUNSET ON THE HIGHWAY" proclaims (no wait, trumpets) that this little dude from Canada has found that weird & wonderful place where great traditions & a personal vision are fused...
From the majestic opening track "ONLY YOU" to the gypsy-blues closing number "HOME", Denwood combines a deep lyrical gift with the musical support of some of the finest & brokest players of his generation...Originally from Toronto, Canada, Denwood spent his early years in Toronto & Montreal before heading south to the legendary town of Woodstock NY, where he was able to polish and develop his roots appearing on stage & studio with the likes of Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Rick Danko & the other members of the legendary rock group, The Band while also appearing on the same bills with NRBQ, Joe Henry, Dave Van Ronk, Paul McMahon(CDBaby artist!)& Chris Smithers...NYC venues included The Bitter End,CBGB's,The Baggot Inn & Downtime...
Seven years later, after being most unceremoniously thrown out of the United States for some kind of illegal alien rap (read the Gary Alexander article...) & back in his hometown, Denwood hooked up with Juno-winning producer Joe Dunphy (TriContinental w/ Lester Quitzaw, Bill Bourne & Madagascar Slim) to produce a live album "THE EXILE SESSIONS" Live at the Old York(2000) & later started construction of Monumental Sound and began recording again in early 2001. Now, after many hours of hard work "SUNSET ON THE HIGHWAY" has burst through onto the scene & landed amidst the immortal pantheon of great & mythical folk/rock songwriter albums....(we're not making this up...) Most recently reached #2 at CFBX FM (Kamloops BC) & is spinning on various CBC shows as well as the legendary WKZE out of Sharon,Conn. & some others...God bless them each & every one...
Favourite venues in TO include The Old York & the Horseshoe Tavern....
Clayton Denwood makes no apologies for his dedication to the high standards laid out by his musical forebears for after all in his words..."It's a big & impossible mountain to go around & I sure ain't the only one but at least they'll know whose side I'm on...".

"They were by far one of the best bands booked at NXNE 98 ! It was such a unique & original mix of music that every body at the club seemed to do a double take from the first bars they https://www.tradebit.coms guy's CD should sell like fajitas in Tijuana !"

****Liner notes for Sunset on the Highway****
So the wind blows & the rains fall out on the dust where integrity hoists a tattered flag. I'been through a long summer & watched the autumn fall & burn never thinking that I'd see this day. They used to sing like outlaws for all the gold & silver their hands
could carry...now it's just an empty game...a club where only the absurd need apply. The carrot & stick routine, the impossible dream...(maybe it always was)
Out here where there's no pressure & no mask it's easy to just sit & watch while the whole thing passes on into the light. Like a parade of archetypal strangeness crawling down the disposable street. I never thought it'd come to this but I'm gonna make that stretch & say that it's time to reel in the lines & cast a whole new net. There's a lot of fish in them deep waters & the moon's gonna guide the way...CD 2001.
