‘Let’s NOT form a band!’

Clayton-Ellis consists of singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalists Clayton Hopkins & Henry Ellis.

Friends since their early teens, the duo grew up not just as fans of classic guitar-based rock n’ roll, but also witness to the rise of Hip Hop and R&B as the largest commercial forces in popular music. As a result, the idea of breaking down the boundaries represented by the traditional structure of a band came entirely naturally.

Having adopted this more modern concept of collaboration and creative cross-pollination (seen far more commonly in Hip Hop) the duo brought their vision of guitar-based music into the future vs. remaining tied to the past.

Since their formation, the duo have collaborated with a number of like-minded artists.

The resulting debut album and trio of singles, along with a slew of videos created by independent video company S2-MOTION, have reflected a restless desire to never stay still for too long.

Recently, additional work scoring music for television has seen the duo further expanding their boundaries into the future.
