David’s 2010 collaboration with Producer Lou Pomanti, “Soul Ballads” has been released in the US on Airline Records. A heartfelt tribute to the iconic artists that shaped the Clayton-Thomas sound. This powerful and moving production has Pomanti also serving as arranger. Scoring big bold orchestrations for a 35 piece orchestra, he provides a lush musical landscape for that unmistakeable voice. The record is finally getting the recognition it deserves. It is a courageous album. Clayton-Thomas walks a delicate line between honouring the original recordings and singing the song in his own voice.
Early reviews confirm that he has succeeded… “If you enjoy classic soul, I confidently recommend this recording as a great way to get all these classics in one place”. “Midnight Train to Georgia,” “I’ve Been Lovin’ You Too Long,” “People Get Ready,” “When Something is Wrong With My Baby” and eight others are performed on this lavish collection”.
