Image635106831944437516Lonesome Day Records announces they have signed Jeff Clair!

Lonesome Day’s owner, Randall Deaton, says;

I have known Jeff Clair since he was 14 years old.  We both grew up in the same county in Eastern Kentucky.  Jeff’s love for bluegrass music and his dedication to using music to give back to his community are second to none.  I look forward to helping Jeff take the next step in his music career.  I believe that Jeff will be creating fresh new music that will help keep bluegrass music alive and well for years to come.”

For fifteen years, Jeff Clair has volunteered his time and talent to showcase Bluegrass and Gospel music for thousands of Appalachian Service Project (ASP) volunteers. 

ASP is a volunteer organization that benefits low income families in Appalachia.  The ASP volunteers come from various states and repair homes for those less fortunate in order to improve their living conditions.  

Jeff says,

“Appalachian Service Project provides a great service to the people in our region and they should be commended for it.  Providing an educational concert for the volunteers is my way of thanking them for all they have done to help the people of Appalachia.  In addition to making lifelong friends and meeting thousands of people we have had the opportunity to present bluegrass and traditional music to an audience that may have not heard this style of music otherwise.  Many of the volunteers come from hundreds of miles away and I’m glad we had the opportunity to introduce all of them to bluegrass music and bring in new fans for the music.”

No stranger to the bluegrass stage Jeff has toured with some of bluegrass music's biggest acts such as Dave Evans & River Bend, Larry Sparks & The Lonesome Ramblers, Wendy Miller & Country Grass, and even appeared on stage with the great Dr. Ralph Stanley!

In late 2012 Jeff decided it was time to step out on his own, assemble his new band " Half Past Lonesome" and release his debut album "They Called Him Jesus", a self released album that is still getting airplay around the world!

Production on Jeff's new album is set to begin in early fall at the Lonesome Day Records studio and is scheduled for release early in 2014! Jeff will also have a cut on the Bob Seger tribute album coming from Lonesome Day Records. That album will be entitled "Silver Bullet Bluegrass" and will feature several of bluegrass musics top artists. For more on Jeff Clair visit his website at halfpastlonesome.com
