Interview: Jeff Clayborn Talks New Single ‘Last Ones to Leave’ & Working with Grammy Award-Winning Producer, Chuck Ebert

" I learn something every time I work and visit Nashville, TN."

Thanks for talking with us Jeff! So, how is 2019 treating you so far?

2019 started with a blast out of the box! Looking great! We released “Last Ones To Leave” the first week and now we’re rehearsing for appearances and performances throughout the year.

Why Fort Worth Area? What brought you here, and what’s kept you here?

I was born and raised here in the Fort Worth area. I still have family and friends here, so I bit the bullet and bought a house just outside of Fort Worth in the country. I am a Texas boy and I do love my Texas people, style, music & food. I also like the central location of the D/FW Area.

How often do you come to Nashville?

I love Nashville! I get there as often as possible! I like to mingle with the professionality of music. Creativity and that get it done ambition flows so naturally. It is obviously a vortex for serious minded performers, educators and producers. I learn something every time I work and visit Nashville, TN.

Since every project has a story, what’s the story behind your new single, “Last Ones to Leave?”

I am just so often the last one to leave an establishment. I am by nature & profession a night owl. My partners and I work late, eat late, and sometimes drink late. So we sat down and wrote it out… Good timin’ friends, the mystery of nighttime, the idea of time flying by when your havin’ fun… I like to write about true life experiences.

This is also the title of your upcoming full-length album coming out in March which was produced by Chuck Ebert. What was it like working with Chuck?

Chuck is the ultimate pro! He hears, thinks, eats and dreams music. After all I have been through professionally, Chuck is a Godsend! We know it takes a village, but there also needs to be those highly experienced and informed sound designers that keep you consistent and focused. He does that and more for all of us. Another important talent Chuck is blessed with is the ability to build a skilled and professional team; a natural leader. See what I mean..? He’s an answered prayer.

What do you like most about recording music in Nashville?

It is one thing to love music and find daily joy in creating, listening to and performing music. There are some upper levels of respect, experience and professionalism that relatively few get to see. In the Nashville studios, I am hypnotized by the expertise, talent and attention to detail. Those of us that are able to attend these sessions quickly become fans and admirers of the musicians, engineers and producers working in Nashville. It is humbling and inspirational. Big thanks to the Omni Recording Studio! You guys changed my life!

Will you be playing in town any time soon?

Yes, I am planning to play at the Country Music Radio Seminar in February. I schedule co-writes whenever I am in town and I am rehearsing with a great band for future performances in Nashville and around the world.

What do you do on a day off in Nashville, no work allowed?

I like to jam with musicians I meet during the session when and if they take off work. I love to hike, camp and fish. As I come to live and work more in Nashville, I’ll go on walkabouts, explore the countryside, and take a guitar and notepad with me of course. Writing Is relaxing.

Any favorite places to dine?

5th & Taylor, Barcelona, and Urban Grub… I also like to go to Ol’ Red’s to kick back, see who’s playing and enjoy music, food & drink… I’m not quite the local yet, so I am still discovering. Though you could call me a regular at 5th & Taylor, (Is that another song)? We shot the cover for Last Ones To Leave there. Great service, food and obviously, we are fans of the atmosphere.

At the end of the day, what do you hope is the message of your music? What do you hope people take away from your songs?

Truth, authenticity and the good ol’ comfort of knowing’ I’ve been through or goin’ through some of the same emotions and feelings you are. I’d like to be known as a good storyteller you can count on. Let’s get back to something’ real…

Any last words for our readers?

Thanks for your curiosity and interest. My shows are the fun relaxing and exciting events that all professional show should be. And also, thanks for accepting new artists. I too love the classics and the great artists touring today. It’s a challenge to let new music in, but once we do, and we begin to trust it, the joy we all crave gets even sweeter.
