Clarence has been described as "the future of the blues". He plays with depth and sensitivity, effortlessly combining blues, jazz, funk, latin and rock into his own unique style. His moving guitar play, rough street-edged vocals, songwriting, and live improvisations are highlighted with every performance.
“Taken as a whole, Surrender could be construed as a summarization of Spady’s life ... the riveting contemporary blues guitarist never fails to satisfy when he gets inside a studio,” notes music historian Bill Dahl.
"Obviously, when Clarence Spady releases an album, it gains attention and award nominations ... Surrender has my vote for Soul Blues Album."
