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 "Texas Swamp Funk" 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. Rhythm is guitar and several percussion instruments , a cajon played with brushes and a 5 gallon bucket kick drum adds to the rhythm. Clyde handles the lead vocals and is the songwriter. Josh, Lisa and Jay Dee sing harmony and backup. The East Side Flash holds down the bottom. 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."
